If you have been reading any of our preview posts for the new FIFA 15 launch over the last few weeks, you will know there has been lots of talk about which legends will appear in the game. Well we can now officially confirm that 15 new legends have been added to the already huge squad of 41 legends. Making it a whopping 56 legends in total! Sadly, just like last year, they will be exclusive to Xbox 360 and Xbox One, but not even that can take the gloss off when you see who will be appearing this year! We have the full list for you below, as well as the BRAND NEW FIFA 15 Legends Trailer!
Franco Baresi- Perhaps the greatest centre back of all time, AC Milan legend Baresi will be able to establish a partnership with fellow Italian and AC Milan great Paolo Maldini.

Lauren Blanc- Now known for being the boss at mega bucks PSG, Blanc used to be a cornerstone of that great French side which won the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship
Andreas Brehme- The German played all over Europe and was known for his boundless Stamina down the left hand side. Best remembered for scoring the winning Penalty in the 1990 World Cup final.
Emilio Butrageuno- The Spanish legend won multiple honours with Real Madrid and for a time was the record scorer for the Spanish national team.
Roy Keane- The man who put the fear of god into players and fan’s alike if your team ever came up against him, and inspired his own, Roy Keane captained Manchester United during their most successful spell. The perfect box to box midfielder, Manchester United would give anything to have him back in their team nowadays.
Brian Laudrup- The first of footballs most talented brothers, the Danish international will be fondly remembered by Rangers fans. Won the European Championship with Denmark in 1992
Michael Laudrup- The second of footballs most talented brothers, he played for Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid. If that doesn’t convince you of his class then perhaps his 6 league titles and Champions League winners medals will.
Sir Bobby Moore- English footballs favourite son. The man who embodied the determination, grit and never say die attitude of the English Spirit. A towering defender and fantastic ball player, Moore remains the last Englishman to lift The World Cup as England captain.

Jay Jay Okocha- Jay Jay thrilled and spilled in the Premier League for Bolton, but he became a fan favourite with fans of every club. This was mostly due to his vast array of tricks and flicks. One of Nigeria’s all time greats.
Roberto Carlos- Brazilian legend Carlos could be the best full back of all time. With thighs the size of tree trunks, he bounded up and down the left for Real Madrid with immense pace and power. Looking forward to free kicks with this man that’s for sure.
Peter Schmeichel- The Premier Leagues greatest ever stopper, the third Danish national in this group of legends, Schmeichel won the treble with Manchester United in 1999 as well as the European championship with Denmark in 1992.

Alan Shearer- Geordies rejoice! The man we all love is in ultimate team! England Captain, all time leading scorer for Newcastle, all time leading Premier League scorer, he guarantees goals. Expect amazing aerial power, incredible finishing and huge power. Best practice that one arm celebration as well…
Hristo Stoichkov- Bulgaria’s greatest ever export, Hristo formed an amazing attacking force for Barcelona in the 90′s. He won the world cup golden boot in 1994. Known for explosive pace and dribbling at speed, this guy will be a dream in FIFA 15.
Carlos Valderrama- Until recently he was Colombian Footballs most famous son. James Rodriguez may have taken that crown, but Valderrama led the last golden generation of Colombians in the 90s. The graphical power of the next gen consoles may even struggle to do justice to that amazing barnet. David Luiz step aside.
It looks like an unreal line up adding to the amazing list of talent that already includes the likes of, Pele, Bergkamp, Owen, Figo and many many more. Have a look at the trailer below to see how they will look in the game.
