Best CB in game
By northendsoul, 03-04-2020

This guy was the only one who fit in my squad ( I had Schar player moments) and he is such a beast. His pace cannot be faulted and I must say only the likes of Mbappe could outpace him but Akanji would normally come in with a slide tackle to dispossess him at the last moment. His strength was matched by no-one whilst his defending was also on point. His height let him tower above everyone and he has scored plenty of goals from corners with his heading accuracy and jumping.

Faster than most defenders and always catches up with attackers

Strong in the air

Scores lots of headers

Free

Quite hard to link but I had Schar so he fitted in well

I scored 3 corners since the start of FIFA. Little guess who scored them all? Indeed, Big Manuel. He feels also pretty quick. With 70...

This man called Akanji

So i used Akanji with shadow and anchor. He's in my backline paired up with Alphonso Davies on LB and Schär on CB (soon to get Maldini). I can easily say that shadow is the best chem style for him. His aggression is still very strong and his defending is insane. He wins almost every tackle and is super fast with the shadow. I've had some trouble with defenders tackling from behind when the attacker goes past you but Akanji...
