Speaking about his return to the pitch, Shearer said, “It’s great to return to the game, my son plays a lot of FIFA so when I was approached about becoming an EA SPORTS FIFA Ultimate Team Legend, I knew it was a great honour to join the likes of Pele, Moore and my old mate Gary Lineker in the game.
