Very underrated player
By Stefanu17, 29-01-2019

I was looking for a solid player that can fit in my AC Milan Legend squad and I was undecided between him and other Icons.


Looking at his stats you may thing that is not a fantastic player: not so fast, can't shot, bad dribbling, low stamina... well none of those stats are true in game with this palyer. Let's see how he performs.


Looking on the intro scene you can realize that this guy is BIG. I mean, is 187 cm but in game he looks like Hulk Hogan: stocky, tall, he moves clunky like Iron Man because he looks heavy like he was made actually of iron.


Pace: In game of course when he sprints he looks even heavier, even with Shadow CS he looks like a T-Rex that tries to run, but no surprises. His points fo strenght does not include pace.


Shooting: another bad trait, at this point you will stop reading and won't buy this card. Wait plaese.


Technical skills: no good news again... OK is a 50-50: not so incredible but short passing is OK, is for me one of the most important stat this year. Another key stat is REACTION for a CB and this baby version of Nesta is the BEST among all of the other cards. Also composure is more than decent.


Defending and Physical: THOSE are the reasons why I buy this card. With Anchor he performs as a 95 rated CB. 95 men. All his defensive stats are boosted to the top and in game you can see that is true. He can outmuscle every single striker in the game, he can perform strange animations to deflect shots in an unreal way without touching the pad. Standing tackles are amazing, in the first game I play on Rivals Nesta wins like 4 consecutive standing tackles in a single action. I quequed a pause because I cannot stop to laugh, and I was thinking "THIS is my man!"

And 68 stamina... not true, trust me. His workrates are perfect to save his stamina till the end of the game.


To summarize: if you're a fan of Nesta choose this version, is the best in therms of quality/price ratio. Maybe you can have better option for a cheaper price, but the "enjoyment factor" on the Icons is something you cannot neglect. Nesta will fortify your defence, pair him with pacey fullbacks and you're OK
