The First Ultimate Team Icon Card With Two Different Nationalities Could Be Coming To FIFA 22

FIFA 22 could become the first entry in EA Sports' longstanding franchise to feature an Ultimate Team 'Icon' with two different nationalities, according to reports.

EA Sports' successor to the widely popular FIFA 21 has not been officially announced, but FIFA 22 content has been leaked online via the private beta.

However, fans of the FIFA franchise could expect to see more on the upcoming title at EA Play Live, which will kick off on 22nd July at 6pm BST.

The FIFA publisher is likely to add a whole new batch of legendary players to its ever-growing Icons roster on the fan-favourite Ultimate Team mode.

And one of the latest leaks suggested that Manchester United hero Park Ji-sung and Dutch icon Wesley Sneijder were among nine new Icons coming to FIFA 22.

Now, Twitter user FUTZone tweeted out an image showcasing Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano with three different Ultimate Team Icon cards.

However, the legendary Argentine-born former player's lowest- and highest-rated versions of his cards have him representing Argentina.

The low-rated version has a 90 overall rating and is a left forward, while Di Stefano's top-rated card has a whopping 96 rating and is a centre-forward.

But Di Stefano's middle card is a 93-rated striker featuring the red and yellow stripes of Spain.

FUTZone wrote in its tweet: "Possibly the first Icon to have [two] Nations [sic] in a FIFA game."
