91 - Icon Moment
The Magician
By iamdavidstamm, 21-02-2021

Disclaimer: massive Porto-Fan here. I did this card because this guy was one of my childhood heroes and it was mainly a pretty sentimental thing (I actually met him before this pandemic at a local pub, very nice guy).

Now let's talk about the card itself: I think he's fun to use. If you don't care about the META and just want to play with players you love (I packed Neymar, I know, I shouldn't talk about not playing with META-players), he's great. The 3-star weak foot is not that big of a deal, to be honest, but that's the only "significant" thing that the card lacks.

Overall: decent pace (not the best, of course), fantastic dribbling, very good shooting and now the best part of the card: the passing. The passing on this card is insane. Raúl is my main striker (this WL he scored 35 goals and made 15 assists in 19 matches) and these guys are the perfect combo. Raúl makes the "Get In Behind"-runs that Deco fulfills with his magical passes. Those passes really bring some nostalgia up...

Conclusion: fun to use, but not META. 7 tokens? Bargain.

Underrated Beast (Deco)

When Looking at this seasons icon swaps it is easy to become underwhelmed, but fear not, Deco is here to give you good value for your tokens. When I saw him I just knew I have to do him, with a plus 8 on his shooting compared to his prime card, you can definitely tell. He's really surprised me in the first five games I've played with him in rivals. His movements are quick, passe...

es buenisimo, pienso que para los 7 tokens que vale es totalmente worth it, tiene mejor regate y velocidad de lo que me esperaba. No defiende casi nada y no tiene mucho fisico, es mas mco que mc, pero va perfecto en las dos posiciones igualmente.
