- EA have deservingly given the midfield maestro a fantastic Ultimate Team card
Andres Iniesta joined Barcelona at just 12-years of age and went on to become one of the club’s greatest players. Now, 22-years and 30 titles later, his time with the club has come to an end.
The legendary midfield maestro has moved to Japan after joining Vissel Kobe in the J1 League. He has also retired from international football after winning a World Cup and two European Championships for his nation.
Iniesta is one of the most decorated players of all time so EA Sports are celebrating his incredible career with a phenomenal card on FIFA 18 Ultimate Team as part of their End of an Era, FUTTIES event.
EA Sports are celebrating Iniesta’s amazing career with an incredible 96-rated FUTTIE card
Iniesta won 30 titles with Barcelona after joining at the age of 12 and spending 22 years there
He has also retired from international football after leading Spain to World Cup and Euros glory
Every year, EA Sports hold the FUTTIES as an awards ceremony-esque look back at the season with a focus on FIFA. As well as upgrading the most popular cards, EA will release new cards for legendary players who are retiring or leaving their long-term clubs.
Iniesta’s pink card looks ridiculous with an overall of 96 in the centre-mid position. The card features amazing stats with 90 pace, 98 dribbling, 94 shooting, 70 defending, 98 passing and 72 physicality.
The card is also wonderfully balanced with both four-star skill moves and a four-star weak-foot. Plus, with high attacking work rates and medium defensive work rates, he will always be a part of your attack while doing enough to help at the back.
And what’s even more impressive is Iniesta possesses multiple stats with the highest possible rating of 99, earning a perfect score in positioning, volleys, vision, short passing and ball control.
The card launched with a Squad Builder Challenge but one which will only last 24 hours, much to the annoyance of many fans. In order to complete it you need to submit an 84-rated squad, an 85-rated squad, an 84-rated squad with at least two Spanish players and an 83-rated squad with at least two Barcelona players.
