In my opinion, I think Messi was my POTY for FIFA 20, his low center of gravity gave him unbelievable agility to dribble past players!

Hello dude
Thank you, I’ve updated the guide, my apologies, I thought this had already been inputted
We are working on a video explaining how to get around the glitch which we should have up soon
Basically, you need to complete the first 2 groups that you start, rather than any 2 groups. Hope that helps
All the best

The 200 appearances trophy can be done in less than 30 minutes.

the method I used is squad battles.

do the weekly one or the team of the week one when that appears.

simply enter the match, kick off the pause and forfeit.

it will count as loss on your record however it will also count as an appearance for your starting squad players.

I was on 130 games when I discovered this method and did the remaining 70 in less than 10 minutes.

the only downside is that you will get a lot of losses on your record if you care about that. But it will not have any impact on your squad battles ratings, division ratings or anything else.

I did encounter some connectivity issues as ea will disconnect you and ask you to authenticate your account after a certain amount of losses… I had to do it 2 times in the 70 games.

but keep going. They all count. I then played a full match after reaching 200 appearances with a player and the trophy popped. If it doesn’t, play another full match from start to finish as you may still be disconnected from the live fut servers

Hope this helps. This reduces the time to platinum this game by at least 40 hours doing it like this as you don’t need to play 200 full matches

youre welcome
