FIFA 23 ICON cards list: Villa, Di Stefano & Romario leaked

FIFA 23 ICONsEA SPORTS

EA SPORTS will add even more ICON cards in FIFA 23, adding to the star-studded list assembled over the last few years. Here’s everything we know about FIFA 23 cards, including leaks, confirmed names, and more details. 

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team is set to feature some of football’s biggest names, including ICONs and Heroes that dominated the sport during their careers.

These two sets of cards represent some of football’s best players from years gone by, and following some Hero leaks, details about Legends coming to FIFA 23 have also surfaced.

Here’s everything we know so far, from leaked cards to confirmed FIFA 23 ICONs.

FIFA 23 ICON leaks

Romario – Brazil

The first name touted for inclusion in the FIFA 23 ICON list is a Brazilian icon, Romario. The striker scored over 750 goals in his career but these days, he does have some involvement in politics, as a Member of the Federal Senate of Brazil.

The leak was provided by FutZone, who later claimed such political involvement could rule him out of the running.

David Villa – Spain

Sticking in Spain, David Villa has also been leaked by FUT Sheriff. The World Cup winner made his name at Valencia, where he scored 107 LaLiga goals in five years, before moving on to bag two league titles and a Champion League with Barcelona.

With fellow striker Fernando Torres already in the game, it was only a matter of time before El Guaje arrived.

Jairzinho – Brazil

In the same tweet that claimed that Gerd Muller would be added, FUT Sheriff mentioned that Jairzinho would be joining the many Brazilian ICONs in FIFA 23. This formidable winger was intrumental in his country’s World Cup win in 1970, finishing as his side’s top scorer.

He was well known for his blistering pace and technical ability, and would surely be popualr card if he does show up in-game this year.

Alfredo Di Stefano – Argentina

Rounding out the leaked Icons so far is Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano. The Argentine is widely regarded as one of the best forwards the game has ever seen, scoring 418 goals in 510 games for the Galacticos.

Di Stefano has been one of the biggest omissions from the ICON roster in past years, and it looks as though FIFA 23 will finally put things right.

As is the case with any reportedly leaked details, the accuracy of the information will not be made clear until official sources offer clarification.

Therefore, we would advise this is taken with a pinch of salt for the time being.
