Phil Foden’s insane FIFA 21 Ultimate Team revealed – with 5 ICONs


Manchester City and England midfield maestro Phil Foden has had his FIFA 21 Ultimate Team revealed by an opponent, and it’s one of the best starting XIs we’ve ever seen. On top of the 5 ICONs is Foden’s own 99 rated pro player card. We’ve got a detailed look at that, too. 

There are few English youngsters as exciting as Manchester City’s Phil Foden. The left-footed wonderkid has secured an important role in Pep Guardiola’s squad as they try to wrestle the title back from Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.

Just after starring in Man City’s League Cup semi-final win over Manchester United, it seems Foden relaxed with a bit of FIFA. Thanks to Redditor u/yaasir_khan, we’ve got an idea of the team he’s running, and it’s a truly scary squad.

Phil Foden’s FIFA 21 Ultimate Team

In terms of his team, he’s gone for a classic 4-1-2-1-2(2) which, as you’d expect, is half defensive juggernauts, half attacking dynamos.

At the heart of his defence is IF Kyle Walker and Milan legend Paolo Maldini, with City teammate Ederson sweeping in front of the goal. Theo Hernandez of AC Milan is at left-back, while Carlos Alberto starts at RB. It’s a top tier back 5, but it only gets better when you look at the attack.

ICONs Pele and R9 are joined by Cristiano Ronaldo and then Phil Foden’s very own 99 OVR pro player card, with Manchester United rival Paul Pogba coming in from the left. Ruud Gullit then sits as an anchor to allow the attacking players to do their thing.

The inclusion of Foden’s 99-rated card confirms that it’s Foden himself, as EA are careful to only give pro player cards to accounts owned by the stars themselves. His full team is listed below:

Foden’s team is stacked with talent.

Phil Foden’s FIFA 21 pro player card

Thanks to Redditor u/Forlan07, who played against Foden in December 2020, we also got a look at Foden’s 99 OVR pro player card, and its stats are pretty remarkable. There’s no point going through stats individually because they’re all 99. If that wasn’t enough, Foden stuck a Hunter chemistry style on himself; because why not?

Foden’s player card might be the best we’ve ever seen.

The player confirmed that they matched Foden in FUT Champions. We’re not sure what the final score was, but Foden was 3-1 up against a player from Division 1. It seems his on-field talents are matched by his FIFA talents. Make no mistake though, that team will be helping him along nicely.
