We all remember the legend that is Marvell Wynne - the fastest centre-back base card to ever appear in a FIFA title.

Well, EA has only gone and recreated the rapid defender in FIFA 23, with a fellow American CB getting an insane World Cup Path to Glory item.

Take a look at the player who has been passed the baton and how you can pick him up for your Ultimate Team squad.

The man, the myth, the legend

USA international defender Marvell Wynne has gone down as one of FIFA's all-time greats.

Ultimate Team fanatics fell in love with the tenacious centre-half back in FIFA 12, when EA created the fastest centre-back ever seen.

The American's FIFA 12 card had an astonishing 96 pace.

Those of you who didn't get the chance to use Wynne's FIFA 12 card may expect the CB's 68 defending or his height to let him down, but this is not the case - the defender was as overpowered as any.

Wynne also became somewhat of a Career Mode legend over the years.

Due to his low overall rating, Career Mode managers were able to sign the centre-half from Colorado Rapids for a very small transfer fee despite his overpowered nature in-game, making him very popular in the offline mode.

Wynne reincarnated

We haven't seen a card quite like Wynne's in years... until now.

EA has handed Boavista FC defender Reggie Cannon a World Cup Path to Glory item and a giant boost in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

Cannon is originally a right-wing-back but can be changed to a centre-back in FUT 23 thanks to the new Chemistry system.

The 24-year-old's special item boasts an incredible 94 pace, just two points shy of Wynne's famous FIFA 12 version.

There are some attributes where Cannon excels above Wynne. The FUT 23 defender's passing, dribbling and defending all beat the old-timer.

Cannon is also two inches taller than his fellow American, standing at five feet eleven inches.

Exclusive item

The only way of unlocking Reggie Cannon's fantastic Path to Glory item is via the World Cup Swaps program in Ultimate Team.

Players can earn Swaps Tokens as rewards for completing Objectives, which can then be redeemed against new Squad Building Challenges - that require only those tokens to complete - in return for top prizes.

This makes the USA international's special card incredibly rare.

Cannon can be yours in exchange for three FIFA World Cup Swap Tokens.

You can link The United States centre-back to the likes of Landon Donovan, Christian Pulisic, Clint Dempsey, DeAndre Yedlin and Sergino Dest.
