Icon you want to see?

So, I appreciate this won't be a novel discussion, but nonetheless I'm curious to see which Icons people feel are missing, that they really want to see, that they can't believe aren't in the game, or maybe those they think don't deserve Icon status?

As new Icons are added each year changing opinions and personal favourites can see the final choices as a fluid decision; at least to a degree.
I understand some, for instance David Beckham (PES), are tied up with other licences; but all that aside, who would you love to see?

They can be a personal hero, an Icon in your eyes, even if they aren't seen that way by others.
They can, and I think need, to include more goalkeepers (and to make them feel and act uniquely).
I reckon they should also have been out of professional football (at least top flight) for club and country, for at least 5 years...but that's more of criteria for a Legend, maybe, rather than an "iconic" player.

The icons I would really like to see in the next game (if not sooner🤞) are;

Zidane (need I explain?)

Peter Shilton (personal hero)

John Barnes (great dribbling and technique)

Kaka (top class in his day, must qualify as iconic...surely?)

Puyol (epic)

Valderama (great Colombia with the frizzy blonde afro)

Graeme Souness (one of the Liverpool greats, tied up in PES currently...i think)
__________________________________
Those are just a few of my favourites, and if any are already in the game forgive my mistake as I haven't had much time with the Icons; either on the pitch or on the market.

What are your all time Icon picks?

    Puyol is in the game my man, give him a try.

    There's a massive lack of wingers and fullbacks imo.

    Cafu, Thuram, Lahm for RB

    Cole, Irwin, Lizarazu for LB

    Garrincha, Beckham, Jairzinho for RW

    LW is probably ok given we have so many current good players for that position

    Totti, surely next FIFA or the one after latest

    Cafu, not sure why he isn't in, they need another RB

    Beckham is like, the definition of an icon lol

    Garrincha and Zidane obviously. But I don't think Zidane will ever be in FIFA otherwise he would have already been.

    Ahhh...they are 3 very strong calls.

    Gazza has to be in surely, at some point?

    Same for Cantona, who I can't believe has been left out already.

    Klinnsman was a beast and definitely a mid to top tier striker.

    Edgar Davids and Drogba must be on the way, don't you think?

    Drogba, especially, had such an impact at club level for such a long time, he definitely was iconic...seems inevitable?

    I actually had a feeling Puyol was already in the game, but I wasn't 100% certain.

    As an Englishman I'd love to see someone like Stanley Matthews?

    I'd be fascinated to see how he would be represented.

    Or Bobby Charlton and Gordon Banks from the '66 team.

    Eric Cantona
    Juninho Pernambucano
    Uwe Seeler
    Gerd Müller
    Ferenc Puskas
    Romario
    And last but not least the Greatest Goal scorer and #1 in the all time list

    Josef Bican
