Georginio Wijnaldum - 85 - Rare
5.0
Amazing player for a great price
By Billabong21, 09-10-2020

Normally meta prem players are way overpriced, but thanks to EA's incompetence when it comes to price ranges, not once but twice, he's actually pretty affordable due to investors undercutting eachother. So I would pick him up whilst you can. I play him at central CAM in a 4231 which allows him to get involved offensively and defensively making use of his hefty 93 stamina. I use a hunter chem style as it now gives +10 finishing and that combined with Wijnaldum's weak foot being upgraded makes him a very reliable finisher now. He makes crazy good runs (as the other reviewer noted) and he's keeping up with my more offensive players in terms of goal contributions whilst also dominating the midfield. He also doesn't feel slow at all being only 5'9 with a hunter chem. So I can't really fault him at the moment, just a bargain player which is especially rare in the prem.

Never tires

Strangely good attacking positing

Consistent finishing

Great at chasing down players

Can play anywhere in the midfield, defensively, offensively or both

Cheap for what he is

Obviously a card can always have better stats, but for what he is, I've had 0 issues.

Badge fighter

I got him out of the 80+ player pick and he has been a game changer. I play him cdm next to mid Veron and they work extremely well together. I found that Gini was always in the right place at the right time and he was perfect for breaking up attacks and dribbling out of tricky situations. He's probably not worth the value he is at but he is without a doubt one of my favourite players as he fights for the badge. He even scor...

The Honest Wijnaldum Player Review

If you're thinking about getting this Wijnaldum card, DO IT.I put a shadow on him to play him as a box to box CM in the 442 formation I play in game. He is agile enough to move around defenders, and his ball control is excellent. Stamina is very good, and with a shadow pace is not a problem, when through on goal I remember him outpacing Joe Gomez. Defending isn't the best but he does inter...
