FIFA 21 Icons revealed: All 100 legends coming to the game including Torres, Eto and Cech

The 100 iconic players that will be included in FIFA 21 have now been revealed with EA Sports announcing the addition of Fernando Torres, Nemanja Vidic and Eric Cantona.

FIFA Ultimate Team, is always one of the most highly anticipated game modes of any FIFA title. From new card types to tweaks to the stats, and rumours over what new ICONs are going to make their way to the game, there is no game mode that generates just as much hype as Ultimate Team.

EA had already confirmed that there would be 100 ICONs available in FIFA 21, and now after the FUT Ultimate Team reveal and trailer held on the 10th August we can now show you each and everyone that will be making it into this year's title.

Include in this year's batch are a number of recently retired pros such as Liverpool F.C and Spain legend Fernando Torres, Chelsea F.C's greatest ever goalkeeper Petr Čech and Bayern Munich and Germany legends - Phillip Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

They'll, of course, be joined by the previous ICONs that have made it into the game so Brazil's Ronaldo or Premier League legend Henry is a mainstay in your team - don't worry - you will still get the chance to unpack them in this year's game.

No announcements have been made about any changes to the card system so we expect that ICON cards will come in the same variants as years gone by, with a Base card, Mid card and Prime card, which will showcase these legends at the very top of their game.

11 new ICONs will be making their way into FIFA 21. They include some recently retired pros alongside some legends from that more likely to excite your dad but you should probably go YouTube Davor Šuker and see why this Croatian striker, who took his nation to the World Cup Semi-Final in '98 and was a star for Sevilla and Real Madrid in the 1990s will be an absolute beast in the game.

  • Eric Cantona
  • Ashley Cole
  • Samuel Eto'o
  • Petr Čech
  • Phillip Lahm
  • Ferenc Puskás
  • Bastian Schweinsteiger
  • Davor Šuker
  • Fernando Torres
  • Nemanja Vidić
  • Xavi

On a practical level, some of these players have a real chance of becoming meta.

World-class full-backs are always a rarity, especially at left-back, so the inclusion of both Ashley Cole and Phillip Lahm is welcome. At centre-back, Nemanja Vidić is, with his height, strength and considerable pace could become a must-have for many.

His mortal enemy, Fernando Torres, especially with a prime card will terrorise defences with blistering pace, world-class shooting ability plus the height and jump to compete in the air means the former Liverpool man could be this year's Kylian Mbappé.
