Antonio Di Natale - 90 ST

The definition of a late bloomer, Antonio Di Natale’s best seasons for Udinese came towards the latter stages of his career, especially around 2010 and 2011, where he was the Serie A top goal scorer.

Only Lionel Messi (82 goals) and Cristiano Ronaldo (86 goals) scored more domestically than Di Natale’s 67 goals between 2009 and 2011, which makes him worthy of an icon card in its own right, and would be a solid inclusion in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Giacinto Facchetti - 92 LB

Top Teams: Inter MilanCareer Apps: 731Career Goals: 79Top Club Honours: 4x Serie A, 1x Coppa Italia, 2x Intercontinental Cup, 2x Champions LeagueInternational Honours: 1x European Champion

Easily regarded as one of the best-attacking full-backs of all time, and a true one-club icon is Italian legend Giacinto Facchetti. Remembered for his sheer pace and physical traits as well as his technical qualities on the attack, Facchetti also stood out for his leadership and discipline, having only picked up 1 red card throughout his career.

Facchetti would be a top tier LB in FUT, that would compete with the likes of Roberto Carlos for the role, and is someone we’d love to see added into the game!

Top Teams: AS RomaCareer Apps: 891Career Goals: 335Top Club Honours: 1x Serie A, 2x Coppa Italia, 2x Italian Footballer of the YearInternational Honours: 1x World Cup

From an Inter legend to Roma’s best-ever player, The Gladiator Francesco Totti is one of the most heavily requested players to be included as an icon in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Despite playing a slightly deeper attacking midfielder or second striker role for Roma throughout the course of his career, Totti is still the 2nd highest Serie A goalscorer of all time.

With a 5* Weak Foot, a rocket of a shot and superior playmaking attributes, Totti will be an awesome card to use in FUT 21, so we really hope he’s included in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

A true Inter legend, scoring 253 goals in 381 appearances, winning 3 Serie A titles in the process, Meazza also led Italy to two consecutive World Cup wins in 1934 and 1938, in which he won a Golden Ball in the former.

While he may have played nearly a century ago, it’s undeniable how good Meazza was and is very worthy of being included in the FIFA 21 icon list.
