Former Black Stars captain Abedi Pele Ayew is set to become the fourth African footballer to appear on FIFA 22’s Icon list.
The launch for EA Sports FIFA 22 is getting ever closer, and more news will surface ahead of the release.
FUT – FIFA Ultimate Team – is an online edition of EA Sports’ FIFA 22 game that allows players to create their own squad using player cards.
Every year, football legends are added to the roster. Didier Drogba was the first African player to be named a FIFA Ultimate Team icon.
Michael Essien was the second African player and Ghana’s first FUT icon, followed by Jay Jay Ochocha.
Pele, Maradona, Lev Yashin, Johann Cruyff, and George Best are among the worldwide FUT icons.
Carles Puyol, Fabio Cannavaro, Steven Gerrard, Clarence Seedorf, Robert Pires, Deco, and Ruud van Nistelrooy are among the other names on the list.
