FIFA 21: Full list of Ultimate Team ICONS revealed and ratings for 11 new cards confirmed

The FIFA ICONS have been revealed

FIFA 21 is set for release in less than three weeks.

The annual title from EA Sports always garners attention from football fans and this year, it will be no different. 

Ahead of the arrival of next-gen consoles, FIFA 21 has made a number of promising changes to gameplay, Career Mode and of course, Ultimate Team.

One thing that also returns in this year's game is ICON cards. 

These are the legendary players that you can add to your Ultimate Team - the likes of Pele, Thierry Henry and Zinedine Zidane. 

Each one, as you can imagine, is incredibly rare, making them the most sought-after cards in the game. 

Ahead of release, EA Sports have now announced the full list of ICONS that will be available in FIFA 21 and they've also confirmed ratings for the 11 new legends.

The FIFA ICONs are back

As you can see, the likes of Kaka, George Best, Ronaldinho and Raul all return, along with 85 others. 

But let's talk about some of those new cards. 

Remember the on-going debate about which defender is better - Nemanja Vidic or Virgil van Dijk? Well, it seems FIFA don't want to answer it, rating Vidic's prime card 90 - the same as Van Dijk.

Vidic is in the game

Elsewhere, the legendary Ferenc Puskas is finally in the game and he's the highest-rated new addition at 94, which actually gives him a higher overall than Lionel Messi. 

Fernando Torres, Xavi and Eric Cantona all have exciting-looking cards too. No doubt fans will be desperate to use them in-game.
