86 - Icon
The Spanish Sentinel
By Kogie13, 16-01-2020

I didn't get him in Icon Swaps. I ended up buying him off the transfer market so I could have some Spanish CB pair with my Futmas De Gea. He's about 300k and I'd say that's a fair price for him. I'd say he's good but not as great as other top tier CB's around his price or more. He's great at stopping attackers and getting the ball out of harm's way but can get beaten easily from players who dribble well with fake shots and drag backs. He can head the ball well and can pass the ball up the field good too. I just felt it wasn't worth spending coins on when you can get him pretty easily from Icon Swaps. And compared to other Icon CB's like Ferdinand and Desailly, I'd prefer those two over him. Overall, he's a great defender but if you were to get him, do his Icon Swap rather than spend 300k or more coins on him.

Hierro is a beast!

I spent the 6 tokens on Hierro and replaced Marquinhos TOTY for him. So far I'm very happy that I picked this beast and will likely keep him for a very long time! His interceptions, his strength combined with his really good passing and dribbling (agility is very good for a CB) makes him one of the best CBs I've used in FIFA. Especially regarding the fact you only need 6 tokens to get him....

Absolut erhaben

Hatte eigentlich vor mir aus den Icon-Swaps Nesta zu wählen und wolte mir diesen um ihn anzutesten, vorher tradable kaufen. Dabei stieß ich auf die 86er Karte von diesem Herren. Im Vergleich der Karten fasste ich Entschluss, Hierro auszuprobieren. Hierfür wurde meine bisherige Neapel-Abwehr (Manolas-Koulibaly) abgelöst. Hauptsächlich habe ich Hierro innerhalb der WL gespielt, zudem noch in DivRivals. Mit dem Che...

Used to be so good...

So i've had this Hierro card since Icon Swaps. Around that time he was easily one of the most broken defenders in the game, he would win every header, every tackle and with a shadow applied he would get back in even the worst 1-on-1 scenarios. But i don't know whether its due to the new range of cards of attackers coming out or recent updates. But the past 3 Weekend Leagues with this g...
