Pele Picks Insanely Attacking FIFA 21 Team Featuring An Incredible Array Of Talent


Pele Picks Insanely Attacking FIFA 21 Team Featuring An Incredible Array Of Talent

Brazilian legend Pele has selected a hyper-attacking FIFA 21 team that you can challenge to play within the game, if you think you can possibly cope with it.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min somehow all feature in his XI. If that wasn't enough, Pele's great Argentine rival Diego Maradona also makes the team as a legend. Which is actually a lovely touch.

Frankly even Pep Guardiola on Champions League final day might think this team (which is available to challenge in Squad Battles on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team) might be a bit too attacking.


The 80-year-old, three-time World Cup winner has dispensed with traditional midfielders altogether in favour of a star-powered seven-man attack.

The three-man defence, meanwhile, contains Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, Chelsea's Thiago Silva and another FIFA 21 legend in Pele's former teammate: ultra-attacking right-back Carlos Alberto.

Germany No 1 Manuel Neuer is the goalkeeper, possibly gazing out wondering exactly where the rest of his defence has disappeared off to.


Although maybe it's the defences of the teams trying to take on Pele's XI that we should be worried about, given the line-up.

Picking Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - with their Team of the Season cards, both of which are rated 98 OVR - alongside 97-rated Mbappe makes it a dream strike force (in FIFA 21 or in real life).

Frankly, the only way Pele could arguably have improved his attacking line-up would be to go player-manager and pick his own legendary, 99-rated FIFA 21 Icon card.


But let's not give the great man any ideas or he'll be booting Thiago Silva out of the team to make space at any moment.
