Icons are some of the most valuable and popular cards in any FIFA installment. There are 105 available Icons in FIFA 22, and new ones are added each year.

In FIFA 23, most Icons are set to be returning, with new ones leaked to come as well. One of the newest leaks is one of the best-attacking midfielders in Brazilian Soccer history, Zico, according to leaker DonkTrading.

Zico represented the Brazilian National team in three world cups and is the fifth-highest goalscorer in the nation's history. Despite never winning a world cup or playing in Europe, he's widely regarded as one of the greatest playmakers in both Brazilian and World Football history.

Zico has never featured in a FIFA title, and if leaks are true, FIFA 23 will be the first time players can use the Brazilian. His card ratings and design have yet to be leaked, but as EA reveals new Icons in late August, they should reveal whether Muller is in fact coming to FIFA 23. 

It has already been leaked that Barcelona legend David Villa should be coming to FIFA 23 as well. Arjen Robben, Gerd Muller, and Alfredo DiStefano have also been leaked as new Icons in the next FIFA title.
