Marco van Basten - 94 - Icon
Van Beasten
By Geada8, 17-04-2019

Well, after a little search finding the best baby icons that I could pack in the end of the month in the garanteed pack of fut swap, I realized that the probablity of packing something that could enter my team was very small. So I start searching the best( and affordable to my budget) icon sbc's. The one I imediately knew that was made for me was Van Basten, amazing shot, great height and strength, nice composure and dribbling.

I decided to make the loan sbc of him and I started him right way.

I play only 10 games with him but it was enough to understand his pro's and con's and to know if he was good to me. I play all the games in Rivals, division 3

He was great, some things weren't amazing, but he is a game changer, he made the entire difference, making me win 9 games, drawing 1 and only losing 1

Trust in him, he is godly...


He is not mbappe, but honestly no one will buy him because of his pace.

Catalyst really help, +10 pace

He is fast enough to get behind the defenders and his positioning and runnings for the long passes are pretty amazing. Once one of my mifielders put the ball behind the defence no one could reach him. And that for me was more than enough. I don't play crazy runs like the players that use Auba and players like that.



Perfect. No more to say. Just don't miss the shot, far or close to the goal. Just amazing.



The long pass isn't very good but it's not the worst because his vision with the catalyst is very good and helps a lot.

The rest of the stats of pass are really good and he plays very well to the team too.



Very good agility, really helps, he is very high but still fast because of that.

Composure: one of the best things about him, very very consistent

Dribbling and ball control are really good also



Not important.

But his heading is really good. In corners, even in difficult positions, he can put the ball in the back of the net easily.



He only has 80 stamina but for me it's more than enough, can last the entire game in good conditions.

Really good strength to hold up play.

Didn't really notice the lack of agression.



3 star skills sometimes is a problem but not a big one for me

Could have a better long passing, but I think i noticed that more because of my style of play

Prime Moments Marco! Is he worth it.

I did this SBC prime moments icon Van Basten as I started to get a lil bored of having loads of different teams and I wanted a player I can use in any team. I decided to choose Van Basten as I saw that 98 shooting and I thought he'd be immense. 6 foot 2, can head the ball, good strength, immense finishing, composure... I knew he'd be a perfect out and out striker that I can rely on to put away even the most difficult chance...

Super Man Basten

What can I say, this man has one of the most broken shots on FIFA. His shot power and accuracy are insane, his high positioning makes him placed always where you need him. With a catalyst, his passing is fixed, as well as gets a huge boost to pace. His strength helps him hold off defenders to get a powerful shot off that will most likely blast into the back of the net. He can last a full 120 being played on stay forward and...

Amazing value for what you get

I've never written a review before, but I had to do it for this guy, Marco Van Beasten. I did his Top Icon moments SBC to use him in this weekend league and what an amazing decision that has been. His SBC goes for around 850-900k (price for him on the market is around 1million right now) and I had a stacked club (with untradable baby Icon) so I was able to do his SBC for a little over 3...
