Naldo - 86 - Normal
4.5
Ronaldo "The Rock" Aparecido Rodrigues

Mr. Naldo is the f***ing beast, he is a solid rock in the center of defense. I use him on the anchor chem, in Brazilian sweaty team, with Miranda as a partner. I'm gold 1-2 WL player.



Physicality and tackling: Don't look at his physicality in stats, in game it feels like 99 strength, no joke. He wins all duels, he has long legs and makes a lot of successful tackles, without committing a foul.

Pace: this can be both pro and cons, he doesn't have great pace but his height compensate it, it looks like he's slow but he has large steps and can cover huge distance.

Finishing corners: he's quite helpful on the other end of the pitch too, he puts a lot of pressure on offensive corners. But it depends how you deliver them.

No problems with stamina, can play 120 mins.

Pace in combination with agility: I play possession attacking style, and my wing backs are always involved in attacks (telles and cancelo IF), so during counterattacks, it's some times really difficult to reach opponents with him as it takes time for him to turnaround, I guess it's because of his 40+ agility. But still if you can control your defense and do the right positioning he can handle counterattacks, depends on your skill heavily. Also I am okay to concede couple of goals during the game, as I play "Ginga" playstyle with my brazil team, and just try to score more than my opponent.

This big guy is absolutly not normal. I dont know why, but EA seems to have transfered FUT 18 Bailly in Naldo, giving him more strenght and an amazing hidden defense ability. Play him in an Hybrid Serie A / Bundeliga team, with Chiellini, Bonucci or Manolas before. Trust me, he is the only guy I never replace. My question is always : with wich GK or other CB I can pair him ?


His pace is really strange 63 on card, but ingame, it feels more live 75-80 (like several defenders in this year).


There is no possibility to defeat him with high balls, his header is definitly too good. If a striker is at least than 2-3 meters, he's dead, his gigantic body will gie him the opportunity to intercept anything.


Only cons i can find is his pass ability, which is not adapted to my playstyle, because I like to build starting from defense and always trying to get out of the offensive situation of my opponent with clean passes.


His price will increase in next weeks / mounths.
