Goalkeeper, defender and midfielder - which Icon is the best? (Credit: fifaultimateteam.it)

With Lev Yashin, Steven Gerrard and Carlos Alberto, three Prime Icon Moment SBCs are available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. But is it worth to complete these SBCs at all?

Carlos Alberto and Lev Yashin in particular have outstanding stats, there's no denying that. With Team of the Season, EA are delivering smashing content almost on a daily basis though, usually for much less coins than an Icon would cost. So let's see if this trio has what it takes to outdo TOTS.

Is the Lev Yashin Prime Moments SBC Worth It?

The Yashin SBC is worth it for his cap alone (which unfortunately isn't shown in-game, except in cut-scenes). Jokes aside, he is statistically and practically among the best goalkeepers in FIFA 21. The question here is: do you really wanna replace God Pope at the cost of almost half a million coins?

Is the Steven Gerrard Prime Moments Icon SBC Worth It?

It's difficult to say this, but not really. Gerrard actually feels a bit undervalued in some areas, particularly defending and physicality. The Liverpool legend was considered the quintessential box-to-box midfielder during his playing days, so to see him not even make the Gullit Gang is disappointing. Mind you, this is coming from a Man United fan.

Is the Carlos Alberto Prime Moments Icon SBC Worth It?

Absolutely not. Icons are often overpriced, but the Brazilian right back takes the cake. 1.6 million coins for a full back? Absurd. Just get Valentino Lazaro for 1/16 of that and invest the remaining million and a half in something more valuable for your FUT squad.
