    Marquez was a solid defender....not sure he was icon quality.

    Might want to google Rafa Marquez current legal issues... although he could probably use the money to pay his attorney. EA won’t be going near that one.

    Edit: after further research, it appears it would be illegal for EA to even do business with Marquez at the current time.

    Honestly, I couldn't stand him as a person. When he was in New York, it was all drama. Dude thought he was the 2nd coming...

    However, Mexicans really love the guy. I was basing my pick on that... I would never use a Mexican icon in my team - that's like rooting for Everton if you're a Liverpool fan imo.

    Racist as ****

    So much ignorance in this thread from kids who probably only know SKY TV era football. Sanchez had a remarkable career and is absolutely an iconic Real Madrid player. Morons.

    It's really not the same.

    Players choose the clubs they play for. You can't choose where you're born. (I know some players have dual nationalities and can choose to some extent, but it's not like if they're half Portuguese/Brazilian they can choose to be Welsh).

    Not racists... It's the team, not the people or country lol. This is a forum about football... Mexico (the national team) is the USAs (again national team) greatest rival...

    I'm not sure how it's any different than an Everton fan refusing to use a Liverpool player on their ultimate team...

    I'm not attacking skin color, culture, cuisine, or any other characteristics related to a person's nationality... only and purely football (the world's game).

    So I presume you would have tots Tavernier in your team if he was better than your current option? :lol:

    Blanco would be fun if they made him 20 pace but somehow recreated his ability to hold the ball. Would also be fun to use his hop move if it actually worked.

    What?! How is that the same? Rival clubs and the refusal to use an entire race is not even vaguely similar. I’ve used plenty of English players despite Scotland and England being the world’s oldest and most bitter rivalry.

    Bit over the top to say this. Seems like he's basing it just on the rivalry.

    @KING_HENKE bit far mate. @Gnomenclature is just talking in the sense of footballing rivalry.

    Would you have Bobby Moore in your team? I definitely wouldn't!

    I will use him. Sanchez was an absolute legend in his time.
  • Nobody will use him if he still has the same composure as he did in classic xi

    I'm fine with him being included, but sadly, it looks like I'll be waiting yet another year for the inclusion of a single American icon.

    Gotta get Fifa 20 it seems, if they could just bring in Marquez as well.... Not sure how his legal issues have gone though.

    that’s because there’s no such thing as an american icon in football
