share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

There's plenty of content to get our teeth stuck into in FUT 23 at the moment, with loads of giant SBCs currently available to complete.

Countless errors within FIFA 23 Ultimate Team means we are now almost just waiting for the next mistake from EA to surface.

Well, here it is. The latest EA mistake, however, is most definitely a positive for the players affected by the recorrection process.

Comedy of errors

It has been no longer than 24 hours since that last EA error came to fruition and we've already got another one on our hands.

This time it is to do with the World Cup Swaps program yet again, after the three duplicate World Cup Swaps Tokens that were incorrectly released yesterday.

The problem is that the World Cup Icon Player Picks from the Swaps program did not feature a selection of every single World Cup Icon.

We do not know which Icons were omitted from the Player Pick but whether it was Zinedine Zidane or Michael Laudrup, it's not fair on those who opted for that specific Swaps reward.

There are, of course, other ways to unlock Icons within Ultimate Team at the moment, with 87+ Base or Mid Icon Upgrade available to complete now, but there are very few ways of unlocking the special World Cup Icon versions.

Two for the price of one

The World Cup Icon Player Pick would have set you back a whopping 35 Swaps Tokens, just five fewer than the incredible 90 OVR Patrick Vieira card.

So, those of you that spent your hard-earned Tokens on the Icon Player Pick will be glad to know that EA has addressed the mistake immediately.
