Before we start, please note that I've made harsher reviews before, and I DO NOT hand out perfect reviews. But this is Danny freaking da Costa. I got him in one of the party bag SBCs a couple months ago, and have played over 300 games with him. Where do I start. I know, first off I'll start by saying that it is almost JULY. I have a 94 overall team. I'm an elite 3 and division 2 player. Danny da Costa is my favorite player in the game. In my opinion, the best right back in the game. Without a doubt. You may be thinking, who is this guy, saying DdC is the best RB in the game, he's probably the only one he's ever used. Wrong. I've tried to use others. TOTS Carvahal. TOTS AWB. Fut Birthday Cancelo. TOTS Cuadrado. (Haven't even tried TOTS bc I've heard many bad things about him). TOTS Lala. TOTS Hakimi. After all of these amazing right backs, who have I decided to use in my endgame squad? Danny da Costa. At this point, you're probably thinking, well, this guy probably just has a bundesliga squad and DdC is the only half decent RB who links. Wrong. He doesn't link whatsoever. But he's so good that I start Hummels just so that Danny fits into my team. I have the budget for almost any RB-CB duo in the game, and I've gone with Hummels and da Costa, simply because da Costa is SUCH A BEAST. It's even gotten to the point where I've now switched Ndombele and da Costa in game, so that da Costa is cdm, just because he is simply too talented to waste a card like that at rb all game. Let's get into the stats now. I use him with an anchor at either rb or cdm
Pace (10/10): There is nobody in the game that can possibly run by him when he has an anchor. Need I say more? I used him in every TOTS WL. Against all the sweats. Nobody could outpace him. Mane, Mbappe, Neymar. They aren't getting past my man Danny da Costa.
Shooting (1/10): He can't shoot. But he's a RB. Who cares. If you play him at cdm, like I sometimes do, just remember to get an extra pass in if he's on the ball in the box. He's not scoring. But who cares honestly most of you will be playing him at right back.
Passing (9/10): I couldn't care less what his stats are (they're not bad btw just not perfect). His passing is great. His down the line through balls never miss, his short passes never miss. Also, he has 4* WF which is cool. Passing feels great in game.
Dribbling (10/10): I promise you I'm not being biased. He truly is a cheat code. His dribbling looks like it'd be poor based off of agility and balance. Uh-uh. Not in game. He'll dribble around literally anybody. 5* SM makes him super fun to use too.
Defending (10/10): Now you're thinking: "Alright who is this guy writing the review. 10/10 on everything? Idk about that." Trust me when I tell you this: He can stop anybody in this game. Is body type is brilliant for a defender. He's really big, and impossible to get around or through. With an anchor, all of his defending stats are almost maxed out, which makes sense in game.
Physical (10/10): 99 stamina. Brilliant. With an anchor, has great physical stats, and you can easily tell in game. The man wins every 50/50 and always ends up with the ball somehow.
dribbling feels way better than what the stats show
passing is definitely good
shooting? Obviously he can't shoot, but it's not an issue at all since I don't think in 350 games I've attempted a shot with him.
