Legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech has been confirmed as the second new icon for FIFA 21 ahead of a full reveal from EA SPORTS.

Each and every, as the hype builds for the next FIFA title, fans are desperate to get details. Be that news about gameplay changes, new features in Ultimate Team, or getting their favorite team’s stadium in-game, the hype always kicks into overdrive.

With EA SPORTS revealing that the number of highly sought after icons will be expanding to 100, the hunt has been on for early details. The devs had confirmed Eric Cantona as the first new Icon, with 11 set to join him in the expanded pool.

Now, the FIFA developers have revealed their next Icon in the form of legendary Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech.

The announcement came on August 8, as EA SPORTS posted a photo of the former Chelsea and Arsenal shot-stopper on Twitter. As you could imagine, fans got excited.

Cech, who retired at the end of the 2019 season and returned to Chelsea as a technical and performance advisor, joins the legendary goalkeepers like Lev Yashin, Peter Schmeichel, Edwin van der Sar, and former rival Jens Lehman as a new Icon.

Though, there is no telling just yet what his ratings might be. They will, surely, come as EA reveals the full crop of new Icons on August 10.

As for who might join Cech as a part of the next crop of legends is unknown. Some rumors have suggested that we’ll see more modern-day legends like Xavi, Samuel Eto’o, and even Maicon. 

What we do, though, is that the wait to see whose getting the honor of being an Icon won’t last that much longer. We’ll be covering EA’s reveal on August 10, so be sure to keep following Dexerto and UltimateTeamUK on Twitter for the latest news and updates.

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
