Godin's play is full of light and shadow. Most of the time he is a very good defender, reading the attacking play very well and can not be defeated through the air. Isn't the fastest, but Chemstyles can take care of that. Some games he is plain bad. Out of position, bad tackling, can't kick the ball for 5 yard straight. Can cause a lot of penalties in bad games, sometimes just kicks attackers or makes them trip, confuses head and hands. Never experienced this with other defenders like Pique, Ramos, Naldo or Hummels. Don't know the cause for it, don't know how to stop him from doing it.
