Soccer Aid is a Unicef program, which every year brings together two teams featuring a mix of celebrities and footballing legends, to play an exhibition match raise awareness and loads of cash for children that are suffering throughout the world.

The annual game was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with plans to play it later in the year but in a show of support EA wants to give gamers a chance to rep the cause by introducing the Soccer Aid World XI, now before you ask - no, you can't play as Gordon Ramsay.

No, the Soccer Aid team has quite a few more accomplished footballers than the Rangers youth prospect turned most famous chef in the world, with the Prime Icon cards of many of the games highest-rated players including Maradona, Gullit, Maldini and Zidane among the teamsheet.

It's a great chance for those that don't play much FIFA Ultimate Team to play some games using the best cards in the game.

The squad has an OVR rating of 93 and no player is rated under 90 - so if you can't win as this lot you may as well call it a day on FIFA.
