Ferran Torres hopes to follow in David Silva's footsteps at Man City

  Ferran Torres hopes to follow in David Silva's footsteps at Man City It actually was not so long ago that a very young Valencia fan, Ferran Torres, hung around the gates of Ciudad Deportiva de Paterna waiting for David Silva. An autograph, a picture, anything to add to his bedroom shrine to the club in the quaint little town of Foios.Now he is a Manchester City player - and one who owns Silva's iconic No 21 shirt. There are still occasional reminders that romance does sometimes exist within football.

Huge news on the FIFA 21 Icons front: there will be 100 legends in this year's game. 11 'new' old faces are added to FIFA 21, including controversial Manchester United legend Eric Cantona, Spanish goal machine Fernando Torres, and marauding England left-back Ashley Cole. Below we profile all the fresh legends headed to this year's game, to form your FIFA 21 Icons guide.

Eric Cantona (CF, France)

One of the most famous French footballers ever won just 45 caps for his country – his mercurial personality considered too much of a risk by a succession of managers. Ultimate Team bosses won’t have to worry about such concerns, and can instead focus on high attributes for awareness, shooting and composure. Everyone remembers Cantona’s four league titles with Manchester United, but it was steering Leeds to the same honour in 1991-92 which set him on the path to becoming Le King of Old Trafford.

FIFA Ultimate Team has a bevvy of new features and options coming for current-generation consoles when FIFA 21 releases in October. There are 11 new additions to the list including former Manchester United and French great Eric Cantona .

The FIFA community wants to see new FIFA 21 Icons .Vote Before voting, you can check the Icons included in FIFA 21 . New icon card: Davor suker, Ferenc puskas, Xavi, Samuel eto’o, nemanja vidic, Fernando torres , Ashley cole, petr cech, philipp lahm, eric cantona , and bastian schweinsteiger.

Bastian Schweinsteiger (CM, Germany)

The ballet-toed, big-named German is one of only two players on this list to feature in FIFA 20. Schweinsteiger was still with MLS club Chicago Fire when the game was released, and so his common gold card can be found on the transfer market – for a wallet-busting 38,000 coins. That item positions him at CB, but he’ll be back in midfield for FIFA 21, where he won the 2014 World Cup with Germany, and eight Bundesliga titles while at Bayern Munich.

Samuel Eto’o (ST, Cameroon)

FIFA 18 was the last time we saw Cameroon’s talismanic frontman, as he brought the curtain down on a 22-year career at Turkish club Konyaspor. Actually, he played for one team after that – bagging six goals for Qatar SC – but they aren’t in FIFA. Eto’o’s icon cards will represent spectacular spells with Barcelona (108 goals in 144 appearances) and Inter Milan (33 in 67), though it’s easy to forget that he also had brief stints with Premier League teams Chelsea and Everton.

Bayern Munich consider bringing Mario Gotze back to the club

  Bayern Munich consider bringing Mario Gotze back to the club The 28-year-old, who scored Germany's winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final, is a free agent after his contract with Dortmund expired earlier this summer after another frustrating campaign. Gotze was lured away from Dortmund by Bayern and Pep Guardiola in the summer of 2013 when he was one of the hottest prospects in European football but failed to make an impact in Bavaria and returned to his former club in 2016.

ALL FIFA 21 Icons . Release Date and Pre-order. The FIFA 21 trailer featured Eric Cantona as the narrator. OOH AHH: Cantona is back! EL NINO: Torres is back to cause havoc for defences in FUT 21 . His career may have waivered at Chelsea, but he proved why he is one of the best in the business

Eric Cantona – France. Another Icon best known for his time with Manchester United. Few players inspired as much affection from fans as Fernando Torres , and he won pretty much everything The above aren’t the only Icons hitting FUT 21 though. Here’s the full list of every returning FIFA 21 Icon

Ashley Cole (LB, England)

Last seen in FIFA 19, the long-time England left-back went out with a whimper on the virtual turf – his final card was a silver-rated 71, with a pace rating of 64. He’ll be back to his best in FIFA 21, with cards based on his days rampaging up the flank for Arsenal and Chelsea. Expect them all to be rated at least 90 for pace. Cole earned 107 caps for his country, and is now back at Stamford Bridge as Frank Lampard’s academy coach.

Petr Cech (GK, Czech Republic)

Cech’s return doubles the number of legendary goalkeepers sporting unique headgear in FIFA 21 – Russian super keeper Lev Yashin is accurately represented with his thoroughly old-school flat cap. Cech wore a scrum cap for the rest of his career after a collision with Reading’s Steven Hunt, but it had no adverse effect on his ability. The stopper picked up four Premier League titles with Chelsea, where like Cole he’s now part of the management team.

The latest instalment of EA Sports' FIFA franchise will feature no fewer than 100 playable icons , with all the old favourites mixed with plenty of fresh faces to give fans a chance to

Philipp Lahm (RB, Germany)

Right-back, left-back, central midfielder? Lahm was successfully deployed in all three roles across his exceptional career, and you’d hope we’ll get one FIFA 21 icons card in each position. Incredibly, Lahm is still only 36 and younger than two active outfield players in the Premier League: Phil Jagielka (Sheffield United) and Glenn Murray (Brighton). He won eight Bundesliga titles with Bayern, and was another member of Germany’s 2014 World Cup winning squad.

Xavi (CM, Spain)

The first of two Spanish new additions had a bonkers career between 1997 and 2016. He won the World Cup in 2010, the European Championships in 2008 and 2012, was named in UEFA’s Team Of The Year five times, and won four Champions Leagues and eight La Liga championships with Barcelona. These days the Terrassa-born legend plies his trade as manager of Qatar Stars League club Al Sadd.

Fernando Torres (ST, Spain)

Beloved on the red half of Merseyside alongside the red-and-white half of Madrid (less so at Chelsea), Torres retired in 2019 with 200 goals in 578 senior club appearances to his name – adding 38 for the Spanish national side. His key team honours came while at Stamford Bridge: one FA Cup win, plus victories in the Champions League (2011-12) and Europa League (2012-13). Like Xavi, he was an integral part of the team that won Euros 2008 and 2012, and the 2010 World Cup.

Ferenc Puskas (ST, Hungary)

At school in the ‘80s four names were widely circulated as the greatest footballers of all time: Maradona, Pele, Cruyff, and Puskas. (Which in retrospect was a bit harsh on Eusebio.) As of FIFA 21 all of those names will be playable in virtual form, as the Hungarian master expands your super-expensive attacking options. Puskas scored 514 goals in 530 games with Budapest Honved and Real Madrid, and was just as great for his country, notching 84 goals in 85 games. Anyone know the Hungarian for ‘staggering’?

Nemanja Vidic (CB, Serbia)

Three league cups, five Premier League wins, victory in the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League and 2008 FIFA Club World Cup: Vidic’s robust, unflappable defending made him a Manchester United legend, and confirms him as one of the modern era’s greatest centre-backs. So successful were his Old Trafford days, it’s easy to forget they were bookended with spells at Spartak Moscow and Inter Milan. Quite rightly, it’s the United years that’ll inspire his FIFA 21 Icon cards.

Davor Suker (ST, Croatia)

Croatia's all-time top scorer with 45 goals earned a Serie A/Champions League double with Real Madrid in 1997-98, and later that summer fired his country to the World Cup semi-finals. His six goals in seven games at that tournament earned him the Golden Boot. Later in his career Suker also featured for two English clubs: Arsenal and West Ham United.
