Former Newcastle United and England star Alan Shearer is the latest football hero to become available in the FIFA Ultimate Team Legends video game.

Ahead of England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania, games will be able to play with one of the greatest English forwards of all time against opponents from around the world.

The former striker scored 30 times in 63 appearances for his national side and was delighted to be included in the game.

Shearer said of the inclusion: “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. I just hope they got my celebration right!”
