Who has joined Ronaldo, Pele and Maradona on FIFA's Ultimate Team of 17 icons for this summer's free download for owners of the latest release?

EA Sports has announced new Ultimate Team experience Icons to be released on May 29, featuring a roster of 17 classic and legendary players to have played the beautiful game.

Stars such as Ronaldo, Pele and Diego Maradona have all previously been announced as Icons, but four new players have been added for the May 29 update.

The four new FIFA Ultimate Team icons added for the World Cup include Miroslav Klose, Hidetoshi Nakata, Gary Lineker and Bobby Moore who have all represented their country in the tournament.

Klose is a German national hero and holds the record of being his side's all-time top-scorer; Nakata's legacy is being one of the greatest Japanese footballers in history; Lineker wore the armband for the Three Lions for the better part of a decade; and Moore led England to World Cup victory in 1966.

FIFA's free content update arrives May 29 with a refreshed FUT experience and will be available to all FIFA 18 players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
