The 10 Best FUT Icons In FIFA 21 Have Been Ranked
FIFA 21's Ultimate Team boasts some of the greatest players in football history - but none are better than this top 10.
Mixing modern superstars with legends has been part of the FUT fun in recent years and FourFourTwo have ranked the FIFA 21 top 10 by their best card rating (in case of a tie, the football magazine sorted them by the second and third card as well).
There are Galaticos, such as Zinedine Zidane and original Ronaldo, and even one defender in the form of Paolo Maldini. Although no sign of Paul Konchesky yet (have to wait until FIFA 22 for this legend).
However the overall No 1 is, unsurprisingly, Pele. Brazil's three-time World Cup winner owns some outstanding stats. How about a 96 for pace, 95 for dribbling and 93 for shooting? We reckon he has yet another 1,000+ goals in him in FIFA 21.
Second on the list is his old rival Diego Maradona. The Argentine genius equals Pele's 95 for dribbling and owns five-star skill moves and a five-star weak foot.
In third and fourth are former Real Madrid teammates Zidane and Ronaldo. Both are a 96-rated card at best, but French maestro Zidane's third card from his stunning career is still as high as 91. Get this CAM in your team.
In fifth is another Brazilian legend: Garrincha. The 1962 World Cup star has a 94-rated card with five-star skill moves and a 96 for dribbling, for which he was world famous in his day. Garrincha edges Hungarian goal machine Ferenc Puskas into sixth.
Streets ahead of his defensive counterparts, Maldini takes seventh spot with an incredible 94-rated best card. Unreal. The smooth Italian left-back, who barely seemed to dirty his shirt for AC Milan or Italy, has a sky-high 96 for interceptions.
There's also one goalkeeper in the top 10: Russia's iconic 'Black Spider' Lev Yashin. He's joint 10th in the FUT legends countdown with Ronaldinho and Johan Cruyff, who both boast five-star skills (though Cruyff is the better the finisher, while 'Dinho is superior on free-kicks.
