FIFA 21 update makes pop singer Dua Lipa, F1 ace Lewis Hamilton and NBA star Joel Embiid playable characters

ONE kick is all it takes…

Pop star Dua Lipa, seven-time F1 champ Lewis Hamilton, David Beckham, and NBA star Joel Embiidare now playable characters on FIFA 21.

The celebrities are the latest names added in the latest update on FIFA Volta mode.

Daniel Ricciardo, DJ Snake and Fred have also been added to EA Sports' adaptation of street football.

But it's the inclusion of singer Dua Lipa that's caused the biggest stir.

“Didn’t have Dua Lipa in FIFA on my 2020 bingo card,” one fan revealed on Twitter.

While another joked: “Dua Lipa playing for the lads in FIFA. Guaranteed to score more goals than Griggs.”

In the past, the likes of heavyweight boxing champ Anthony Joshua and DJ Diplo were also playable characters.

"Football stripped back to its fluid, joyful, and energetic core", as EA Sports have called it, Volta is a throwback to FIFA Street.

Matches take place on smaller pitches, with up to five players on either team – but with much better graphics and some minor changes in gameplay.

The pitches are akin to street football, with cages around the world, in a nod to stars like Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson, who began playing football and developed their skills on concrete.
