Pele’s ultra-attacking FIFA 21 team will leave you drooling with Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi and Son Heung-min

PELE has selected an ultra-attacking FIFA 21 side, available to challenge within the game.

The Brazilian, arguably the greatest player of all time, attempted to cram in as many attacking players as he possibly could.

Only two out and out central defenders feature, while the 80-year-old didn’t bother with any midfielders.

His team is about one thing – attack, attack, attack.

German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer gets the nod between the sticks.

While Sergio Ramos and Thiago Silva are picked in defence.

The duo are joined in a back three by ultra attacking wing-back and former Pele team-mate Carlos Alberto – scorer of one of the great World Cup final goals in 1970.

Midfield doesn’t really exist for Pele, so he has plonked compatriot Neymar and former rival turned pal Diego Maradona in the centre of the park.

Mo Salah and Son Heung-min are shoehorned in as wing-backs – with Spurs fans likely to remember the latter’s disastrous attempt at playing the position during their 2017 FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea in which they went down 4-2.

The front three is then packed with even more flair, speed and goals.

Pele picked Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player in the world last year – because he believes that he is more ‘consistent’ than Lionel Messi.

But in this team, he has been able to select them both.

The GOAT debate duo are joined up top by Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
