As soon as the ICONS feature was revealed to be a part of the FIFA 18 features package, anticipation was building around as to which legends of football would be included in the newly included FUT feature. EA Sports kept fans on their toes with well-timed glimpses into the game and revealed that football greats Pele, Maradona, Thierry Henry and Lev Yashin would be a part of FIFA 18.

The presence of such legendary players had piqued fans' curiosity towards the game. EA also gave a date of 1st August for the complete release of the FUT ICONS. We duly logged on to the live stream in anticipation of the ratings reveal and this is what we learnt.
