FIFA 20, EA Sports Presents a New ICON on Video: Michael Essien!


There are already many FUT Icons – the legendary players that will appear in the FIFA 20 Ultimate Team – announced by EA Sports. Andrea Pirlo, Zinedine Zidane, Didier Drogba, and many others … Now it’s time to get to know another icon, presented by Canadian developers with a dedicated trailer: ladies and gentlemen, Michael Essien!

The Ghanaian footballer, born in 1982, has for most of his career tied his name to that of Chelsea, where he played for eight years, but he also played in the ranks of Olympique Lyon, Real Madrid, and Milan, among the other. Essien, a midfielder, has scored numerous spectacular goals, such as the one that was awarded to Arsenal in the Premier League in 2007: an out-of-area shooting effort that was literally elusive for Lehmann. Not surprisingly, this feat is the protagonist of Essien’s presentation trailer, which you can see at the bottom of this news.

FIFA 20, we remember, will be launched on September 27th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in Standard, Champions and Ultimate editions, and on Nintendo Switch in Legacy edition. A few days ago, information on the release date and teams of the FIFA 20 demo leaked to the net, not yet officially confirmed by EA Sports.
