EA SPORTS have finally released all of the FIFA 21 ratings for this year’s Ultimate Team ICONs, with Eric Cantona, Petr Cech, Philipp Lahm, and others among the game’s top rated players. 

In August, the game’s developers confirmed the full list of 100 ICON players featuring in FIFA 21. This included legends from several leagues, including the Premier League, La Liga, and others.

With Xbox One, PS4, and PC players eagerly waiting for the ratings since, EA teased their arrival on September 17.

Soon after, a few of the set was dropped for all to see. Members of the game’s online community will be most interested in the newest additions to the set, though, and finally they have got their wish.

First of all, they had released the following teaser image on the EA SPORTS FIFA Twitter page. It showed off a throne, which is a reference to Cantona’s “king” nickname.

No specific reference was made here, but with all of the legends confirmed,  fans guessed it could only mean one thing. FIFA 21 ICON ratings, and they were not wrong.
