Juventus Legend Andrea Pirlo Named As The First Icon For FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

EA Sports has revealed that Italian legend Andrea Pirlo will be an 'Icon' in FIFA 20's Ultimate Team.

Icons were introduced in FIFA 18 after replacing the 'Legends' cards featured in FIFA 17 and have become highly sought-after by fans of the series.

Last year's FIFA 19 included legends like Pele, Diego Maradona, Ronaldinho and Johan Cruyff.

Pirlo enjoyed success both on the international stage and at club level.

The Dutch centre-back, 28, told SPORTbible: "When I found out I was on the FIFA cover it was unreal.

"I've played FIFA since I was young and saw all these big players on the cover.

"It's good to get recognition sometimes as a defender and I'm very proud. It's not often that a defender comes on the cover and it's something very special."

The FIFA 20 Champions Edition cover star also revealed which players he would pick for his dream team for Volta Football.

FIFA 20 is slated to launch on 27th September. It will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
