Essien in a post on social media stated he is happy to be chosen as an icon alongside some legends such as Ryan Giggs, Claude Makelele, Roberto Carlos, Andriy Shevchenko and Sebastien Veron.
"It's amazing to be an ICON in @SoccerAid World XI FC, go and play with us in @easportsfifa now! A fantastic initiative to be a part of with @unicef_uk 💙🌎", the former Real Madrid defender also called on games to play with the SoccerAid World XI FC on FIFA 20.
