EA SPORTS FC 24: Every current player with the 5-Star/5-Star skill & weak foot combo at game launch

A new era in football videogaming is nearly upon us with the upcoming launch of EA SPORTS FC 24. However, EA’s first offering in a post-FIFA franchise still retains many vital characteristics that gamers are familiar with – such as 5* skills and weak foot. So, here is every player with the 5-Star skills/WF combination on EA FC 24.

Although useful across all game areas, the 5/5 combo is one that holds great value in EA FC’s online game mode, Ultimate Team. Maxed-out skills and using both feet are great assets to any card – especially so early on in the game.

However, it is also a very rare commodity on launch day. Per FUTBIN, everyone’s favourite FUT database, there are just eight players who have the 5-Star combination on EA FC 24.

Of course, there will likely be Heroes and Icons that also own this stat, but we do not know them right now.  Who is already confirmed, though?

5-Star skills & weak foot on EA FC 24: the top 5 highest-rated

A quintet of stars from the men’s and women’s games earn 5*/5* honours at the start of this game cycle.

Firstly, Alexia Putellas leads the way. At 91-rated, she is the joint-highest-rated gold card in the entire game at launch. And her card certainly shows it; the Ballon d’Or winner has 90 shooting, 91 passing, and 92 dribbling, as well as numerous other well-rounded stats. That Putellas has 5-Star skills and weak foot is the cherry on top.

Joining the Barcelona star as the other women’s player with 5/5 is Brazil’s Debinha. The NWSL star lives up to her nation’s tradition of producing skilful players thanks to her combination of skills and two-footedness. Debinha’s 88 OVR gold card could be an incredibly fun one to put into your Ultimate Team.

Elsewhere, some familiar names also make for high-rated 5/5 players. Firstly, Neymar continues to be maxed out in these two categories. At 89 OVR, he is one of the highest-rated Saudi Pro League cards following his move to Al-Hilal.

Ousmane Dembele, who moved to PSG in the summer, comes in at 86-rated with another season of possessing the 5* combo.

Finally, completing the ‘walkouts’ that will have the 5-Star connection on EA FC 24 is Napoli’s dynamite winger, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The Georgian baller has enjoyed an incredible rating boost compared to the start of FIFA 23. He has risen from a 74 OVR to 86.

All of these cards will likely come at a premium in the early part of the EA FC cycle. Thankfully, though, there are a few more budget-friendly options if you want 5*5* in your starter squad.

The cheaper 5/5 guys

Three more players will begin EA FC with maxed-out SM and WF. At 80 OVR, Jesus Manuel Corona represents a big drop in rating compared to the elite, aforementioned five players. However, his all-around stats could make him a useful midfielder in starter teams for those who like having skills available.

If he was still at Sevilla, that is. Corona’s transfer back to his native Mexico will make it tricky to fit him into Ultimate Teams chem-wise.  

Meanwhile, both Rayan Cherki and Cesinha are 75-rated, making them the lowest out of the eight current cards with 5/5. That being said – at least in the early part of the game – Cherki could be a useful CAM in budget Ligue 1 squads.

Cesinha’s league and team, Daegu FC in the K-League, make him largely unusable, though.

So, there you have it. There are definitely some premium options that have the elite 5-Star combo on EA FC 24, plus some lower-price options if you need them. 5*/5* is valuable at this point in the game cycle – so the likes of Neymar and Putellas may end up being very expensive indeed.
