|Titolo||Who is Lev Yashin? Meet FUT 18's new Icon|
|Descrizione||It's always exciting to see new legend additions to FIFA Ultimate Team, especially now that http://www.futcoin.com/ fut coins, what the former Legends are now known as, will be on both Xbox and PS4. The idea of Ronaldo Nazário, Diego Maradona, and Thierry Henry gracing our screens on the pitch yet again is exciting for most. But there is one new FUT Icon that may leave some fans curious: Soviet Union goalkeeping legend, Lev Yashin.
Yashin was a former Soviet goalkeeper who played professional football for 20 years with Dynamo Moscow and the Soviet national team. The keeper began his career in 1950 but wouldn't be recognized for his budding brilliance until 1953. During a three-year stint with the reserve team from 1950-1953, Yashin even moonlit playing professional hockey as a goalkeeper for the Dynamo hockey team.
From 1950-1970, Yashin was a genuine one-club man. With Dynamo, the goalkeeper went on to win five USSR football championships and three USSR Cups. He'd rack up more than 325 total appearances for the oldest Russian football club.
After a valiant effort (though somewhat marred by his own inconsistant play) in the 1962 World Cup where the Soviet Union lost to Chile in the quarterfinals, Yashin would be honored in 1963 with football's highest individual prize, the Ballon d'Or, becoming the first goalkeeper to ever win the award. He remains the only one to achieve the honor even today.
