Ashley Cole is one of the newest Icons released into EA SPORTS FIFA 21 upon its release in October 2020. Widely regarded as one of the best English full-backs in world football history, Cole retired in 2019 and was brought back into the world of FIFA Ultimate team two years later as an Icon.

With the return of Icon Swaps on Feb. 19, Ashley Cole's Prime-Icon card has been offered in the Icon Swaps SBCs. Here's how to get your hands on the English legend.

About 89 Prime-Icon Ashley Cole

Widely known as one of the best English players to line up in the back four, Ashley Cole was a staple at Left Back for Chelsea for years. His first ever Prime Icon card perfectly captures his abilities in FIFA 21:

  • Overall: 89
  • Pace: 89
  • Shooting: 67
  • Passing: 83
  • Dribbling: 83
  • Defense: 88
  • Physicality: 80

While he lacks a considerable skill move/weak foot combo at only 3-star/2-star, his defending ability is what sets Cole apart from other full-backs. His speed and marking ability will help slow down the top wingers in the game, and he has well-rounded dribbling to bring the ball past the midway line to help spark a counter-attack. His 87 crossing can help you find darting strikers making a run or big men in the box for a header, such as his former teammate (and fellow FIFA 21 Icon) Didier Drogba.

For only nine tokens, he can be completed with this first cycle of Icon Swaps objectives, and he can be a viable upgrade to your squad. Especially if you have a cheeky End of an Era Wayne Rooney sitting on your bench waiting for a strong link to play alongside... you've certainly got options with Cole.
