Part of the legendary Arsenal Invincibles and the 1998 FIFA World Cup with France he has definitely earned his spot as an Icon of the game and Robert Pires has his Team of the Year Icon SBC available in FIFA Ultimate now!

The card has some phenomenal stats and characteristics such as:
- 90 Acceleration and Sprint Speed with the Controlled AcceleRATE type and his High and Average+ body type will make him really fast in long sprints

- Amazing Passing stats with 92 Vision, 90 Crossing, 89 Short Passing, 86 Long Passing and 88 Curve allowing him to distribute the ball for the final pass from anywhere on the pitch

The card has a few drawbacks such as:
- 80 Shot Power might make it a little difficult to execute long shots and fully utilise his Finesse Shot Trait
