Tips to complete OTW Richarlison quickly
As the objective stipulations and the squad requirements for the Live FUT Friendly mode suggest, Premier League players are highly required to complete this objective group.
Fans will be best off using a full squad of Premier League players instead of meeting the minimum requirements of three. This is because they can score and assist with any footballer on the pitch without having to force the ball to specific teammates.
To complete the crossing objective efficiently, it is crucial to have wingers with good crossing and long passing stats, as well as a tall striker with good heading accuracy.
A 4-2-3-1 formation might be ideal for this task, as the wide attacking midfielders can act as wingers to provide crosses, but can also drop into the midfield to help with the finesse shot objective.
However, possibly the most efficient method to complete this objective and unlock Richarlison in FIFA 23 will be to search for a match at the same time as a friend and give each other wins till both complete the objective.
With cross-play being introduced in FIFA 23, this will be possible even if your friends are on a different console but are on the same version of the game.
