Gianfranco Zola - 85 - Icon
5.0
Best CAM in the game so far
By BITW7, 25-11-2018

Div Rivals: Div. 1, rank I or II

FUT Champs record: 28 wins (T100)


Theres different styles that people prefer in a CAM. Some want a tall and strong player.. others want a good shooter, 5* weak foot.. & others prefer a short, high agility + balance, high dribbling, good shot, specifically high ACCELERATION. A messi type CAM. Zola is exactly that. If you enjoy playing with Messi, Insigne, & Gomez at CAM, Zola will be a dream for you. He can dribble and accelerate well, has killer timed finesse shots, & good stamina. the middle and Prime versions of his card have higher shooting, but sacrifice his speed, which is a large part of what makes him valuable.

  • Dribbling
  • Agility
  • Timed Finesses


  • Physicality, but if you're a good dribbler, this shouldn't be an issue

THE COCAINE GOBLIN
By Hermesonori, 17-01-2019

PACE:

9/10

Messi's style pace, unbelievable acceleration and a great sprint speed. He can easily outrun any ICON/TOTY defender in the game. Its not about stats, its about goblin height animation..

KEY STAT - 93 ACCELERATION


DRIBLING:

10/10

What can i say about dribbling, AWESOME!, FANTASTIC!. He moves thought the field like a cocainomane snake. He usually don't lose the ball, but when he does, he'll get it back.

KEY STAT - THE WHOLE DRIBBLING


SHOOTING:

10/10

Do you know what finesse shot is?, no you don't until you try this little piece of garbage. It seems to have a cannon, not a leg. Almost 100% of shots go inside, people will think that you're the handicap king, 4 star weak foot its fine, he will do his job

KEY STAT - 85 finishing *seems like 99* , finesse shot trait


PASSING:

8/10

That's it, great but not outstanding. rarely wrong in an assistance

KEY STAT - 85 SHORT PASSING


DEFENDING:

xxx/10

He is surprisingly good when he has to get the ball back. Nothing special, but good to know

KEY STAT - none


PHYSICALITY:

xxx/10

Horrible strength and lack of jumping, however with 92 balance, using him as a CAM that would not be a problem! Stamina is not bad, but not good.

KEY STAT - none





OVERALL SCORE: 9.5 / 10

It's the best cheap icon that you can find. give him a try, you wont regret.

Outstanding Baby Icon
By Johndenim, 17-03-2019

Hello there and welcome to my first review on futbin. I just had to do one for this guy, he has been absolutely incredible for me and is so much fun to play in every game! I play Zola as a ST with Deadeye to push his passing and shooting.

Let's start!


Pace 9/10: He is very quick and his acceleration is amazing. He is no mbappe, but I don't even use a chem for speed since he is quick enough for me and has the "tries to beat the defensive line trait", which allows him to outpace most defenders as they have to turn to catch up to him.


Shooting 9/10: He has amazing shots in his skillset! He is always good for a goal, really good in 1v1 as his composure is really high with 85. Low driven or finesse shots both work really well. Sometimes, he has little inconsistencies from very difficult positions.


Passing 10/10: THIS GUY! I do play him as a striker but boy, he does pull the strings in my attacking game. He just plays perfect short passes and combined with his dribbling, most defenders cannot cope with him. Quick and deadly passes.


Dribbling 10/10: I think that the whole package makes Zola Baby so strong, but his dribbling might give this card the edge. He is amazing on the ball. SO agile and the ball is so close to his feet that defenders most of the time are just not fast enough to get the ball. Very smooth to do tricks with, since he is so small, I can just rush through opponents with him.


Defending: n/a


Physicality: He is small and kinda easy to tackle (obviously), but as his dribbling is so high, it is actually hard to get him off the ball. Stamina is fine for me, he can play 90 minutes through. I think that I didn't score headers with him.


OVERALL: Amazing value for money, a lot fun to play and a gamechanger for me. I think he is really useful as a ST; his middle or prime are better as CAM. For that amount of coins, you cannot do anything wrong. Enjoy him and Score!

PS: I played him in Division 4 mostly, just got to DIV 3 with him.

  • Fast
  • Good shooting with both feet, especially finesse and low driven
  • DRIBBLING!!! The best, he owns the ball and is very hard to push off the ball
  • Good passing, he assists nearly as much as he scores (and that as a ST)
  • CHEAP
  • Heading maybe
