Cesc Fabregas is causing a stir in the online FIFA 16 community. Gamers are often interested in the best starting XI, but not only that, they want to know what their football idols think. Former Arsenal captain, Fabregas, has listed a very interesting starting five for a 5-a-side pickup game that’s rather amusing.
Speaking ahead of the release of EA SPORTS FIFA 16 Ultimate Team – Team of the Season, the Chelsea man said: “In goal, Iker Casillas. In defence I’ll put Gerard Pique.”
“In midfield I’ll choose an attacking midfielder because I like offensive football, so David Silva.”
So far, so good. But here’s where it may get a little controversial for Arsenal and Chelsea supporters.
“And up front Thierry Henry and Lionel Messi.”
The all-time record goalscorer of the club he so controversially left in favor of anyone else from his current club – who he so controversially joined.

In the last couple of weeks, potential additions to the game’s list of ‘legends’ has been a popular theme. Here we scanned the current list of FIFA legends for any glaring omissions, compiling the following list of the people we think are worthy of a place on next year’s game.
Winston Bogarde – Getting the sense that this isn’t all that serious yet? Good. You’re right. How good a player was Winston Bogarde? It’s a difficult question to answer if you’re a Chelsea fan. Having signed for the club in 2000, the Dutchman rarely played and his sizeable contract reportedly priced him out of a move elsewhere.
Jamie Lawrence – The one who played for Bradford in their stint in the Premier League and dyed his hair funny colours. Admittedly, the Jamaican international might not be regarded quite as highly as the likes of George Best and Luis Figo – other right wingers who currently have FIFA legend status – but his ever-changing hair colour would be a truly unique feature of next year’s game.
Freddy Adu – Unlike many of the other people who make up FIFA’s legends list, Freddy Adu is neither retired nor dead. Instead, he’s currently representing his 63rd football club, Tampa Bay Rowdies, in the North American Soccer League.
Jorge Campos – What Jamie Lawrence was to flamboyant hair styles at Valley Parade, Jorge Campos was to equally bright Mexican goalkeeper kits.
Jonathan Wilkes – By now, we’re running out of ideas, so why not this guy? Contrary to popular belief, Jonathan Wilkes wasn’t just Robbie Williams’ mate who he called on when the first few Soccer Aid matches rolled around – he was actually an entertainer and did songs and stuff.
France football legend Thierry Henry has sent Arsenal fans into overdrive by revealing he will be joining an upcoming videogame.
Current Sky Sports pundit Henry tweeted that he had been at a shoot to become a playable character on a game.
The tweet reads: I will actually be put into a computer game as a playable character. You will find out shortly…
We would imagine that Henry will be joining FIFA 17 as a new legend card on Ultimate Team, and the picture he tweeted is from one of FIFA’s mobile scanning booths.
Assuming this is for FIFA, and not PES, Henry will join fellow Arsenal heroes Davor Suker, David Seaman, Dennis Bergkamp, Sol Campbell, Freddie Ljungberg, Patrick Vieira and Robert Pires as fellow FIFA legends.
Although before we hear an official announcment we cannot say for sure.
It’s equally possible this could be something for Konami’s next Pro Evo game.
After all, Henry was previously a PES cover star for Pro Evo 4 and 5 during the game’s greatest ever period in the mid 2000’s.

Good news for Xbox One and Windows 10 gamers and subscribers to EA Access and Origin Access: Electronic Arts has decided to add FIFA 16 to the Vault, a move that should excite football players around the world. With the FIFA games longed deemed the best video game for the sport of football, EA’s latest edition is no exception. The new game brings much of what players have come to enjoy from previous title with improvements and new gameplay features to push the experience further.
“FIFA 16 will be coming to The Vault for EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access members on PC beginning April 19,” reads the announcement from EA. “FIFA 16 innovates across the entire pitch to deliver a balanced, authentic, and exciting football experience that lets you play your way. You’ll have Confidence in Defending, take Control in Midfield, and produce more Moments of Magic than ever before.”
The most notable improvement is the ability to allow a player to slide tackle and get up soon after to keep pressuring the attacker. There have also been improvements to defense, midfield, and attacking gameplay. Most importantly are the improvements to the goalkeeper: now, he’s much better than in previous games so players should now have more confidence in the final backline.
What about the option to use female football teams? It’s in this edition as well and is probably the biggest new feature in FIFA 16, one that has not been talked about much since the game was released back in 2015. We also haven’t seen many players using female teams on YouTube, but seeing as football is a sport with a strong male following, this is not surprising at all.
EA Access is only available on the Xbox One and Origin Access is only available on Windows PC. The service costs $6.99 per month, or $29.99 per year, to play any game in the Vault. At the moment, there are 15 games in the Vault.
