Accidental Tweet

Yesterday evening, EA seemed to accidentally tweet to the official FIFA account that Argentinian legend, Juan Riquelme, will be joining FUT as part of the new Copa Libertadores update.

Luckily for us, one Reddit user posted a screenshot of the tweet on the FIFA sub-Reddit, which they grabbed before EA could delete the tweet.

Evidently, the Boca Juniors legend is more than deserving of an FUT Icon card.

Riquelme’s Icon Card

A closer look at Riquelme’s new card reveals his incredible attacking stats, made up of 93 rated dribbling and passing, and 87 shooting.

Last month, EA announced the additions of 89 Prime Icon Moments joining Ultimate Team, so don’t be surprised if Riquelme also receives a Prime Icon Moments card at some point.

Free Content Update

As we’ve already mentioned, this new Icon is part of the new Copa Libertadores update dropping today – the update will be free for all gamers to download.

The official EA press release states that we can feel the passion of a continent and experience the breathtaking intensity of South America’s biggest club tournaments.
