After getting a lot of coins thru trading I wanted to try out one of the top tier Icon moments cards. I recognized that Zidane had the most IGS of them all, even more than PIM Gullit so I decided to give him a try. I used him as the central attacking orientied CM in a 5-3-2. He scored 39 goals in 32 games for me and got 16 assists during those games (Fut champs E3, Div 1 about 2000 skill rating).
I already tried out TOTY CR7, some other moments cards around 3-5 million coins and a few other really expensive cards and Zidane was by far the best player I got to try in Fifa 21. He feels really quick (used Hunter), surprisingly agile for his strength and size and he's got the deadliest positioning and finishing of any player I tried so far. He seems to finish every single opportunity he gets, even in situations where you wouldn't expect the ball to go in he finds the back of the net over and over again. Getting more than 1 goal per game as a CM is something I haven't seen from any of my players so far. He really feels special and is one of the top 5 cards you can get in this game IMO.
Pretty much everything. 5 star 5 star and outrageous shooting are the biggest pros IMO.
He doesn't seem to have a weakness in game. His price tag is really high but he still felt worth the coins, especially compared to the toty strikers.
Finally an allround Zidane usable in any offensive role except winger.
Due to the fact that I play different tactics in a game I always need a player who can do a lot of positions.
When I play 433-5 he is best as the CF with a false 9 role.
In a 352 he is the best CAM i had up to date and in a 442 he can play striker or cm.
His price tag is very high, but my team is pretty awesome with mid cruyff, ribery, atal, sanches, aouar, mendy so I could put all coins into one card.
I tried most versions of Cruyff, R9, CR7, R10, Garrincha, Pele, Maradona, Cantona., Gullit, Kaka. Every card has its pros but lacks at least one important stat for me. (WF, stamina, strength, traits, composure, defensive abilities)
But this PRIME MOMENTS ZIDANE ... offers so much versatility and he shines on any position.
I never had this card before in any FIFA and can't think there will be a better one this year for 8kk.
- Combination of 5* / 5*
- Shooting in general
- Finesse trait
- Outside foot trait
- Pace (with Hunter)
- Player Model
- Versatility (ST, CF, CAM, CM .. even CDM)
- price is high (but there is no better card this year)
- he is not as agile as maradona (I dont need that, but with an engine or finisher he is very agile too)
