Virgil the Beast

(Sorry if my english is bad, I am spanish)

I never thought I would do a review of a CB because I considered all were bad due to the bad gameplay of FIFA, until Virgil Van Dijk came up to me in my red Fut Champions rewards (I was so lucky). Before him, I was using 9 red Koulibaly and I considered he was a beast as well, but he wasn't an elite player. Then, I tried out Van Dijk and... WOW! He is freaking amazing. As you can see, I used him along side prime Nesta, 84 Chilwell and 81 Lala (Untradeable). Obviously, when you buy this player you expect for him to be one of the best defenders of the game, and indeed he is. I didn't try top notch defenders like TOTY Ramos or TOTY Varane and everyone else, but I was using that 91 Koulibaly before and Van Dijk is way better than him, just because he is meta. He wins headers against everyone, he fucking jumps like a cangaroo and smashes attackers and defenders all over the field. In my last FUT Champions, he scored 5 goals and gave an assist in 28 matches (not all matches were in FUT Champs, but minimum 25 of them were). That is sick. If you are lucky and he stays in the front post in the corner kicks, just do the R1+Square cross to him and he will blast the ball into the net. He is fast as fuck and he is really really strong, can push everyone of the ball. Also, his tackles are perfect almost everytime and he is well positioned all time, at least until FIFA wants because we all know this game... Anyways, if you are thinking on buying it, I would say it's worth it, or at least he is waaaay better than the normal card.

  • Speed: he can catch up almost everyone IF they can get past him.
  • Heading: He scored 5 goals in 28 games so I think that is good enough (obviously he is a beast in the air)
  • Positioning: He saves a lot of goals because of his positioning
  • Passing is great to get the ball out of your area
  • Strength: He is so strong and pushes everyone off the ball.
  • Height and jumping: Those two combined means that he destroys everyone
  • Stamina: He can play the whole 90' and also 120' with his full potential.
  • 3 star weak foot (I have never had a problem with that, is just to write a con but believe me, that's not a con)
