FIFA 20: Andrea Pirlo, the most anticipated champion, pops up among the icons

The Maestro joins Fifa's icons. EA Sports, through its Twitter account, announces the landing of Andrea Pirlo among the icons of the game

The anticipation grows for the release of Fifa 20. Although there are still two months to the launch of football simulator for excellence (the arrival on the shelves is scheduled for September 28), continue to follow confirmations and rumors about what will be the highlights of the title developed by EA Sports.

Some important innovations have already been unveiled: we think, for example, the new system of dribbling and ball control that should make it even more realistic gameplay, or the return of soccer with Fifa mode VOLTA. Do not forget, then, the "disappearance" of Juventus (passed to PES 2020) and the entry of Piedmont Football. And, perhaps just to "forget" the farewell of the team champion of Italy, the developer has closed a deal with one of the icons of Italian soccer to include him in the "Hall of Fame" of legends available to players in the "Ultimate Team" mode.

The return of Andrea Pirlo

EA Sports announced the return to the field of Andrea Pirlo. With a tweet, the developer specialized in video games has made official the presence of the Italian midfielder among the icons that can be purchased in the "Ultimate Team" mode. The values that will distinguish the former midfielder of Brescia, Inter, Reggina, Milan, Juventus and New York City FC have not yet been announced, but you can imagine particularly high scores for passing and shooting power.

Andrea Pirlo will go to keep company to several myths of Italian soccer already present in the list of icons of Fifa Ultimate Team. Some names? Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero, Fabio Cannavaro, Alessandro Nesta, Filippo Inzaghi, Gianfranco Zola, Gennaro Gattuso and Christian Vieri. In short, the best of Italian soccer of the last 30 years (or maybe even more).
