EA Sports Release Pele's FIFA 18 'Icon' Card And It's The Greatest Of All Time

EA Sports Release Pele's FIFA 18 'Icon' Card And It's The Greatest Of All Time

How do you create a card for a player who scored 1283 goals in 1363 games during his professional career?

EA Sports had the unenviable task of supplying stats for a man who was voted World Player of the Century in 1999.

They had to build a card for a bloke who lifted three World Cups, two World Club Championships and nine Sao Paulo State Championships during a 21 year career.

That being said, the gaming giants have successfully supplied the most successful league goal-scorer in history with a very special 'icon' card that overshadows Messi and Ronaldo.

With 96 pace, 95 dribbling and 93 shooting, Pelé now owns the greatest FIFA card of all time:

The above card received a far better response than yesterday's FIFA 'icon', Thierry Henry.

During his time in North London, the striker became the club's all-time leading goalscorer with 228 goals in all competitions.

He scooped a number of honors during his glory days at Highbury, including two PFA Player's Player of the Year awards and two Premier League titles.

But EA Sports decided to give the former Arsenal and Barcelona forward a 90-rated, LW card and it didn't exactly go down well on Twitter:

FIFA have already announced that Henry, Ronaldo, Lev Yashin and Diego Maradona will feature and now former Santos striker Pele will star among these iconic figures.

Thoughts on Pele's new card?
