Miura was 29 when FIFA 96 was released, but he’s still going strong.

A former Japan international, Miura represented his country between 1990 and 2000, scoring 55 goals in 89 appearances.

Now in the 33rd season of his professional career, Miura is often deployed as a substitute for Yokohama FC.

During his long and varied career, Miura has represented 14 different clubs and joined Yokohama FC in 2005.

Roma legend Francesco Totti had featured in every edition of FIFA before retiring in 2017.
