Player Review

89 - Icon
By sneijderwasrobbedin2010, 07-12-2020

ok so, im a casual player, i play div4 and gold2 in wl. My favourite striker of all time is mvb, i dont care about all the drama around him, for me he's the best. So when i got enoughh to get him i had to buy that card. I applied hunter in a 4-1-2-1-2 narrow and tbh i didnt expect much from him as he isnt meta. BUt trust me, i was surprised. 10 games, 14 goals, 9 assists. The goat. Its always fun to use icons even if they arent "meta" but just have fun :) I mean of cours youre not getting the most fast, agile player, but trust me he was pulling the strings of the attack.

  1. shooting: obviously he is so good with a hunter
  2. pace: with a hunter he was alright but not that quick neither
  3. passing: i was surprised when i noticed how he managed to pull the strings by the attacks by delivering crucial passes
  4. fun: i mean, nothing much to say, its just fun toplay with an icon (an personally with my favorite striker)


  1. pace: again its not the best
  2. dribbling: low agility and balance combo so its difficultto be supre meta
  3. height: he is really tall and combined with the low agility and balance he becomes clunky
  4. price:i mean he is epensive, you can get a lot more meta plaers for less, but depends on what you are looing for

Van Goaten

Hello guys, i asked you in the comments if you wanted me to review this bad boy and it seems you would like that so here we go. Marco Van Basten is probably one of the best (if not the best) strikers to ever grace the football pitch. When i opened my baby icon pack back in FIFA 20, i saw a Netherlands flag and i was over the moon because i thought i had got the main man Cruyff. But i didnt...

Marco van basten que loco que esta

My god... I have used Van Basten 89 in FIFA 19 and FIFA 20 and scored more than 2000 goals. This year it could not be the exception. Bought him for 485k to use him in the 2nd Weekend League. 50 goals in the 2nd WL and 42 in the 3rd WL. His shooting is just AMAZING.

A decent card

Packed him from base icon pack a while ago. Overall, I think he is a decent card. Pace is not bad, but I recommend improving it with a hunter or engine. The shooting is just sublime - he has an absolute rocket of a right foot, the four star weak foot also makes the shooting even more excellent. His strength and jumping stats are fairly good as well. My main complaint is regarding his balance. Despite havin...
