I believe I am very honest when I review a card on FIFA, I try to tell it like it is and give a truthful assessment of what the player is like in-game. There are very few cards in the game that have wowed me, but this is one of them, and I will go as far to say that he is the best player I have used in FIFA 20 hands down. I tried very hard to think of the things I didn’t like with the card but the truth is, there simply isn’t anything negative to say. He has it all and is now the engine that drives my team. You could play him as a striker or anywhere in midfield, but honestly, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t play him at central CAM.
For me personally, the central CAM is the most important position with my play style and is how I score most of my goals. I played him middle CAM using an engine in a 4231 for a whole weekend league and I was blown away by how much of an impact he had on my team. His shooting is top tier, some of the best finishing I’ve experienced this year, and with his 5-star weak foot he can score in every which way you can think of. His long shots are particularly lethal and come in handy if your opponent is parking the bus. He also gets around the pitch very well due to his high/high work rates, and with the stamina to back it up means he is very reliable all game long. Passing and dribbling are immaculate, with incredible strength on the ball too. He would be a nightmare to deal with defensively but luckily for me I have not seem him in many teams and I can’t understand why. Must be the 3 mil price tag because I see no other reason.
To sum it all up, he plays the most important position on FIFA in my opinion, and he does it better than any other card I’ve used. If you are on the fence about purchasing him, I would say take the plunge and get him in your squad ASAP. He is an absolute game changer.
He shoots, he scores. nuff said
Has incredible dribbling and is super strong on the ball
Passing is top tier
Much faster then his stats suggest (use an engine on him)
Free kick god, he's drilled some bangers for me
Stamina for days, energizer bunny
High/high work rates are perfect for him, means he gets involved more than most
5 star weak foot
Versatile, he can basically play anywhere
5 star skills would be nice i guess
Hello all! So I was lucky enough to pack this beast! I did a total of 40 New Year's PL upgrade and shot for the moon. Once I packed him I immediately dropped him in my squad as I was playing Fut Champions with 12 matches left and I was on 13 wins and I can tell you guys oh my did change the whole midfield! i won all my remaining matches and reached Elite 2! He is so complete, I have 3 formations. One I play him as Cam (In my humble opinion he is the best in this position), one I play him as CM and the last as CDM, he conquered all of these positions. I gave him a Shadow chemistry style so he is almost maxed out. I really hope all of you guys get the chance to play him, you'll have lots of fun!
I will explain his pros here starting from the top and then list them below.
Pace (10/10): With pace chemistry style, he is the most complete CAM you'll ever try in this game.
Passing (20/10): Passing is his specialty, no cons here hats down.
Defending (8/10): This should be the least of your concerns because no sane person would play him as CDM unless they have to. (I have too many untradeable Midfields so I had to play him as CDM for a couple of games) but even at this position he's a beast but a lot of better choices out there.
Shooting (20/10): Man I really can't say which one I prefer, his passing of shooting? Whether you Flair, Finesse or Volley he will hit the target! No way he misses, just like he'll never miss pass, he'll never miss shoot!
Dribbling (9/10): He has AMAZING dribbling, he can get past players so easily and with some certain skills that a player is used to he will be UNSTOPPABLE! The only downside to him is his balance and agility but it don't matter that much compared to his outrageous stats.
Physicality (10/10): One of the things that I love about this guy is his stamina, strength and aggression. It is so RARE that you have a CAM who has all of these attributes combined. I honestly can't think of someone other than Gullit but he's more of a CM. I instruct my CAM to have aggressive interceptions and my oh my is he the best? YES!
I really recommend him.
Wish you all best of luck
Pasked him untraceable. When I packed him I knew he'd be good but he was even better than expected. Constantly the player I look towards when trying to get something to happen. He can do literally anything. Having 5* wf is massive. If the balls within 25 yards you have 80% of scoring on either foot. Very OP for near post shooting. When dribbling he is so fast and strong that people can't tackle him.
Doesn't have one
De Bruyne, ringleader and FUT's #1 for in-game stats
Statistically, this card has more in-game stats than any other... and yes, that includes Gullit. For any other card at this level, it'd be let down by poor weak foot/skill move combinations or work rates , but not this TOTY sensation. The fact that 98 De Bruyne is approximately half the price of 99 Ronaldo is absolutely outrageous, it is proof that you're paying for the name, not the card. Due to Shadow boosting KDB to 98 Pace and 89 Defending, I use him at Striker probably 40% of the time, meanwhile he plays at CDM in the Gullit role the other 60% of the time.
Anytime, anywhere, De Bruyne will dominate there
The #1 pro would have to be that this card could effortlessly earn a match rating of 10 in absolutely any position (e.g. One of the more ignored features of this card is its 90 Aggression, meaning a boost to its defending will result in De Bruyne snapping the ball away from defenders all over the pitch.
Potential pace and defensive buffers needed
The pace isn't necessarily an issue, but after using Shadow on this card for the most part you'll never accept 88 Pace as good enough again. Headers are unreliable but can be boosted with Sentinel, Anchor, Gladiator as well has Shadow & Backbone for less of a boost.
