Not only is the UEFA Euros 2024 kicking off, but Copa America 2024 also starts on 21st June - and we’ve got how EA FC 24 is celebrating the tournament in-game.


It’s not getting the Euros treatment with a fully playable tournament, but there is still a lot of content on offer, as well as the opportunity to upgrade cheaper players into formidable 95 OVR monsters by way of the Copa America Attackers Evolution.

Not only that, but 10 players from the Americas have received the Path to Glory treatment - and we even get some Icons too.

To get the most out of Attackers Evolution, we’ve listed what we reckon are the best players to upgrade to get the most bang for your buck.

There’s certainly going to be a lot of football in the coming weeks, so let’s get to it so we don’t miss out on any of the action!
