Below you can see the so far announced FUT 18 Icons.


Joining Ronaldo are Diego Maradona, Thierry Henry, Pelé and Lev Yashin.

Ronaldo Nazário

The legendary Brazilian striker's deadly mix of explosive pace, lethal finishing and dazzling skill made him one of the most feared strikers in the world. A three-time Ballon d'Or winner, Ronaldo Nazário became one of Real Madrid's famed galácticos when he joined the club from the Italian league.

Diego Maradona



One of the world's most gifted footballers, Maradona was a fearsome dribbler who could make any defender look lost. He lit up the 1986 World Cup with an astonishing run and finish against England, dribbling around almost half of the opposition, earning him FIFA's Goal of the Century award.

Thierry Henry



One of the Premier League's all-time great strikers, Henry's incredibly elegant yet unbelievably deadly finishing won him the Golden Boot four times in his eight years at the club. A World Cup winner on home turf in 1998, the Frenchman is his country's top scorer having amassed 51 goals in 123 appearances.

Lev Yashin



Arguably the greatest goalkeeper in the history of the game, the “Black Spider” remains a Dynamo Moscow icon, the club where he spent his entire 20 year career. Estimated to have kept 270 clean sheets and saved over 150 penalties, Yashin remains the only keeper to ever win the Ballon d'Or.

Pelé



The only player to score more goals for Brazil than Ronaldo Nazário, Pelé was quite simply one of the greatest footballers of all time. Six Brazilian Championships, three World Cups and over 600 competitive goals in a career spanning 21 years justify his status as one of the all-time legends of the game.

EA Sports also announced that more news and details on Icons will be revealed later this summer.
