Essien and Drogba join Jay Jay Okocha who is already in FIFA 19 as a FUT Icon.

However, a lot of FIFA fans are not happy with Essien’s addition as an Icon claiming he is not yet a retired player. Others also have other suggestions of who they think will be perfect fits.

Sometimes the legends aren’t always world class players.

Nakata is a legend just for what he did with Japan in the World Cup. I don’t

know much about essien. Did he do something like that?
