Player Review

87 - Icon
ZOLA Mr. Magic Box
By Petrone10GGMU, 26-04-2021

I packed Zola in the mid icon pack back during the second headliners promo when he was worth around 450k. After seeing how much Zola is now (160k per FUTBIN) he is incredible value if not one of the best value for coins icons in this game. He has played 230 games for my club now and I have yet to drop him, with 163 goals and 85 assists. He's played several positions for me including LAM, ST, and CAM. Without a doubt CAM is his best position you truly get the best of him from there. I typically now play a 4321-2 because with Zola at the bottom of that Diamond is magnificent. If you are someone who likes a technical skillful dribbler this is your guy.

His left stick dribbling is nothing shy of exceptional. His size and weight may seem like he would get bullied but his dribbling just allows him to glide my defenders and make my opponent look silly. His traits are exactly what you could be looking for, his finesse shot is brilliant.

Since his left stick dribbling is so good he feels faster than the card looks at face value, but he still doesn't outrun rats like varane.

His movement in the box is second to none, he always seems to be in the right place at the right time.

Stamina is a big con this guy struggles to finish the full 90 and definitely needs to be subbed should you go to , if you like to pressure your opponents

His composure on occasions, especially when he only has the keeper to beat.

Zola the goat

I packed him in the sbc base or mid icon so i tested him immediately in WL. Before him I tried son Potm, Ben seder If , Rashord and Mbappe and to my surprise this guy is the best of anything I have tested. He chained the threefold in WL, his finish is incredible, his agility and hisbalance his excelent too. Its lack of size is compounded by its balance, it has a bit of the same style of play as ben yeder in game. 4 ...

I packed this icon out of a 24-24 pack (jumbo rare player pack) and tried to use him in my team. Now he's still playing at CAM with an hunter and he's amazing at the ball and has amazing shooting. He's also really fast.
