Festival of FUTball Classic European Squad

Posted June 22nd at 5:00pm.

Not all of the best players in the world are in Russia this summer. Whether their national team didn't qualify for the World Cup, or they didn't make their country's roster for whatever reason, there are plenty of World Cup legends watching this year's tournament from the couch. To honor those players and their international legacies, a select squad of 18 players are getting special FUT items with upgraded ratings to reflect the heights of their International careers.

The Classic European Squad includes the likes of Spain's 2010 World Cup winner Fernando Torres, English stalwart John Terry, legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, and 2014 Cup-winning goalscorer Mario Götze. Check out the squad below to see all the Classic European players you can find in FUT packs for a limited time. The only exception is Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas, whose CES item is only available as a reward for completing a Weekly Objective.

All Festival of FUTball and Classic European Squad items can only be found in core FIFA 18 Ultimate Team, not World Cup FUT.
