FIFA 21: How to complete Icon Fernando Hierro SBC – Requirements and solutions

The former Reak Madrid back can be obtained through a new Icon SBC.

On December 28, EA Sports released new Icon Squad Building Challenges for three football legends: Fernando Torres, John Barnes, and Fernando Hierro. The former Real Madrid back can be obtained by FIFA players upon completion of a Squad Building Challenge, but like the Torres and Barnes SBCs, this one won’t be cheap.

How to complete the Icon Hierro SBC

As far as solutions go, you shouldn’t have too much trouble with the Born Legend and Rising Star parts. Because those two parts don’t require any Gold players, the cost should be anywhere between 3,000-4,000 for the former, and around 5,000-6,000 Coins for the latter. Or, you could just use any Bronze or Silver player items that are lying around in your collection.
