Spanish legend

Carles Puyol is a true footballing great.

The Barcelona legend was a one-club man, captaining the side for a decade, winning La Liga six times and the Champions League three!

However, the World Cup Icon upgrade is obviously coming in celebration of his and Spain's triumph at the 2010 tournament, straight off the back of winning the Euros in 2008.

Carles Puyol has simply insane defensive stats but is lacking a bit of pace which may put you off completing the SBC.

However, once a Shadow chemistry style is applied this card is more than usable and could be worth grinding for in Ultimate Team.
