PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa is a defensive dynamo on the pitch, and that idea is very much present in his five-at-the-back Ultimate Team XI, which is stacked with legends.
Footballers don’t get a lot of downtime at the moment, with the football calendar as stacked as it currently is. But when players get a rare chance at some downtime, it’s no surprise to see them loading up Ultimate Team.
We’ve seen a number of top players show off their sides throughout the FIFA 21 season. Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr has a team stacked with Madrid legends, while Lyon’s Memphis Depay has a truly stacked team.
Featuring a five-at-the-back formation, 10 ICONs, and his own 99-rated player card, opponents will have a tough time trying to best Kurzawa in a FIFA match.
Famille, travail et loisir voici mon quotidien 💙
Je continuerai à croire même si tout le monde perd espoir.
Je continuerai à aimer, même si les autres distillent la haine🤜🏽

Layvin Kurzawa’s FIFA 21 Ultimate Team
Posting on the FIFA subreddit, LJD98 revealed Kurzawa’s full team having played him online.
It’s clear Kurzawa goes for the tactic of putting defense first, with a 5-2-1-2 formation and a backline stacked with ICONs including Paolo Maldini and Roberto Carlos. That leaves an attacking trident featuring Brazil legends Pele and Ronaldo Nazario, plus Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o, to put opponents to the sword.
Here’s Layvin Kurzawa’s full Ultimate Team lineup:
- GK: Lev Yashin (95)
- RWB: Carlos Alberto (94)
- CB: Marcel Desailly (92)
- CB: Rio Ferdinand (91)
- CB: Layvin Kurzawa (99)
- LWB: Roberto Carlos (92)
- CM: Claude Makelele (91)
- CM: Lothar Matthaus (94)
- CAM: Samuel Eto’o (93)
- ST: Ronaldo (97)
- ST: Pele (95)
It must be pretty nice for Kurzawa to be able to put so many ICONs into his team. With such a strong defense, coupled with top-tier CDM’s Makelele and Matthaus patrolling in front, it looks pretty much impenetrable.
With a team like that, opponents will find it almost impossible both to score against and to stop the potentially lethal counterattacks.
