While the elite duo of Ronaldo and Zidane have been awarded the highest overalls, many FIFA 23 gamers will feel that's justified. The two cards have excellent stats and could be among the costliest in the FUT market.
What's impressive about the team 1 release is that all the cards are highly viable. This is why they'll make great additions to the squad. While Ronaldo and Zidane might have the highest requirements, cards like that of Klose and Crespo can also be very useful.
Aside from stats, all these Icons will inspire nostalgia and also present an excellent opportunity for FIFA 23 players who want to play as their favorite footballers on the virtual field. It remains to be seen how frequently gamers can obtain these cards.
In addition to the promo packs, Robin Van Persie's Icon card can also be acquired by completing his SBC. It will take about 300,000 FUT coins' worth of fodder to accomplish all six tasks and add him to the Ultimate Team squad.
Promos usually deal with active footballers' unique cards, and enhanced versions of them are added to the Ultimate Team. This year's title has already seen the inclusion of two new promos on the occasion of the FIFA World Cup, taking place in Qatar. With the release of the first team of the World Cup Icons, gamers can now get special player items from packs.
