93 - Icon
5.0
Best player in the game?!
By So2Mike, 15-01-2021

Where do I start?! I've used the majority of the top tier icons such as R94, Mid Dinho, Mid Cruyff, Baby Pele, etc. This card is absolutely INSANE! I was scared of getting him because I've used his baby card at the start of Fifa and while he was really strong, his dribbling was questionable at times. But I was wrong! He dribbles like Mid Dinho and feels faster than Cr7! His passing is also insane, always pinpoint and when he's pressured just hold LT/L2 and he just shrugs off the defender and you can either dribble your up the pitch or make an amazing pass. His finishing is also crazy, I run an engine on him and his shooting feels like a rocket, rarely misses, 4* weak foot feels like a 5*. I'm in love with this card idk how any other card can be better than this, maybe more pace and Pele like dribbling?

For a price to quaility comparison; if R94 goes for 6.8m, Prime Cantona needs to go for 5-6m.

5* skill moves

Dribbling! Having someone with his height and strength dribble like a Ronaldinho is a cheat code.

4* weak foot feels like 5*

Feels surprisingly fast, can blow past any defender.

STRONG!!

Passing! Messi like Passing

Heading

Pace

COMPLETE ATTACKER can play ST, CF, CAM, RAM, LAM, any attacking position!


Defending, don't play him at CDM or CB lol

He's not Mbappe fast but he's still really fast

Not Neymar or Pele dribbling but still has amazing dribbling.

Eric Cantona the King
By FrederikKiszka2003, 24-02-2021

So the EA gods decide to bless me by granting me this monstrosity of card in the mid/prime icon pack and all I can say is WOW. This is a card. You can both play this guy as a striker and a CAM due to his immense passing stats but I prefer him as a striker. I would recommend using someone small and agile besides him (I used TOTGS Messi) As he isn't the most agile and can feel a bit clunky at times. Not a lot but a bit. I used the engine chem style which helped a lot. Although his left stick dribbling can feel a bit clunky at times I don't feel like you notice this when skilling with this card which is very important for me as I like skills. You can compare this card to Cristiano Ronaldo as they are very similar though i think that this card edges him. Every time you shoot with this guy the ball is in the back of the net. His finishing is absolutely incredible. All and all this is crazy crazy card an I can only recommend him.

Shooting - Not a lot to say. When you shoot with this guy, you score. Crazy shot power and combined with his finishing it makes for a deadly combo. Also the finesse shots on him are absolutely broken.


Long shots - Kind of the same as before. 92 shot power combined with 93 long shots makes for a crazy long shot.


Positioning - Always found this guy to be at the right spot at the right time.


Skills - 5* skills will always be a pro on any player and this guy just feels amazing to skill with.


Positioning - Probably what I found to be the best from this card was his positioning. With 92 positioning he always seemed to be at the right spot at the right time. His work rates are also great for both a CAM and a striker.


Heading - I've always found myself to struggle scoring headed goals both in terms of corners and just in general. I actually found myself scoring a few goals from the corner spot due to Cantona's height, jumping, and heading accuracy. Both of those stats are 92 which is just crazy.


Passing - Try to place a pass with this guy and he completes it. Immense.The vision combined with great long passing and short passing made me get a few assists with the king.


Strength - Try to hold L2 with Eric and it's done. Your opponent ain't touching the ball. Also just in generalwhen running besides a defender he won't be pushed off the ball which is very nice. A quite weird thing I noticed is that I scored a lot of bullshit goals with this card. Like where the opponent tackled me but I still managed to get the ball back. He just mashed thought the defender sometimes and his 91 reaction also helped him pick up those lost balls.


Pace - This is not a major pro but I felt like putting it here. For a guy that tall to have this pace is very impressive and I feel like he was pretty fast in game. But again you won't get Mbappe type pace from him


Dribbling - Much like the pace this is not a major pro.He feels good on the ball and always keeps the ball close to him but when it comes to those quick turns he can feel a bit clunky due to his size and "only" 86 agility and balance.


Stamina - Very good stamina and he won't run out wether you play him as a CAM or a striker.


Composure - 96 composure. 96! Give him a chance to win you elite in the 120th minute and he will put it past the keeper as if it was in a preseason friendly against Accrington Stanley.


Complete - This guy is just so complete and I think that it's worth noting that with an egine chem style the only non defensive stat not above 90 is his free kick accuracy. That is honestly just so unheard of.

Price - His price I really high and it's not that he's not worth the coins (which I think he is) I just think maybe you will be able to find a better card for the price point.


Clunky feel - As already mentioned sometimes he will feel a bit clunky when turning. This is not a major con since it's not very noticeable for a 3,5 mil icon I have to mention this. Again his dribbling isn't bad and I think you can compare his dribbling stat with 92 Ronaldo.

The King is here!
By Dxmingo, 09-03-2021

During the year, Cantona's card was one I was always curious about. I was lucky enough to pack some crazy cards this year but after over 500 games with some I wanted to test other players.


I decided to buy his prime card for 3.3 million and I have not regretted this decision at all. Looking just at stats and cantona's build, you'd think he'd be good but potentially clunky. This could be more wrong! His dribbling is so responsive its crazy!


As you've seen with some of the other reviews here he's been compared with R9, Eusebio etc and I have to agree. He is up there with the best icons in the game. I've used all the top guys and he fits in that mould. He has a build like R9, Feels like him on the ball and his a menace to get off the ball. Even when he loses it, he fights for the badge to get it back and score a banger!


If you're looking for an icon who's good as the top guys but a bit cheaper this is your go to guy. He stands out above Puskas, Eto'o and many other icons.


I've used both the hunter and Engine and personally I think the Engine is the chem style for him. However if you prefer a bit more pace, the hunter is the chem for you - his balance and agility is good enough without the boost.

EL REY
By StefanoBtti, 08-04-2021

Primera review que hago sobre un jugador , y no podía ser otro que sin ninguna duda el mejor delantero que he probado en este FIFA. Soy división 1 y elite 3 o 2 en FUT CHAMPIONS, compré a antes de esta versión utlizaba la versión mediana de 90, y quise pegar un salto de calidad viendo las stats del prime que se comparan a las de CR7 o Mbappe TOTY. Vale cada moneda, utilicé cazador usándolo de DC y después de 150 partidos lleva más de 300 goles.

The King tiene todo, skills, tiro con ambas piernas, cabezazo, fuerza, es un delantero completísimo, de lo mejor del juego.

5 skills y 4 pierna mala (que parecen 5)

Compostura 96 (no erra ninguna chance frente al arco)

Mejor salto y cabezazo que CR7

Velocidad (con cazador)

Regates

Stamina (juega todo el partido y el adicional)

Diría que el body tipe puede llegar a ser una contra pero en ningún momento me pareció un jugador tronco, si lo sabes utilizar es un Dios.

Puede que el precio pero vale cada moneda.

The massive Ballerina
By ZeusAdonis, 21-03-2021

I pulled Cantona Prime from the Icon Player Pick myself and have now played 95 games in Div1 and WL. Thanks to him, I cracked Elite for the first time last week and I'm really excited about him. I've played 100+ games at Lewandowski TOTY before, because I just wanted a different type of player. And what can you say ..... The difference is worlds. Cantona is a super weird mix. A brute monster at heart, but a flexible feather on the field. His 5 * skills are executed to the point and the ball sticks to his feet. But while a Neymar is simply checked away, Cantona just runs around everyone. I have the situation so often that he would actually lose the ball but simply "fall over" over the opponent and still keep walking with the ball. The speed boosts are also extreme. He has his own movements and they somehow make him unique. You can see him more and more now, but still many opponents are not yet prepared for him. Neymar ,. Mbappe and Rashford etc. are now known how they move. Cantona is something different ... something completely different!


Pace (8/10): His speed boosts are really strong and it feels like he is 2 steps ahead. However, he is often caught up in running duels. (On the other hand, a short L2 bump or simple ball shielding helps)


Shooting (10/10): Is on endgame level. His shot power and accuracy make him an enforcer in every situation. With Outside Foot Shot he can make a goal out of actually harmless situations. And I'm actually really the worst header player in FIFA and although headers are not like op this year, he just always hits them. Thanks to its Power Header Trait, they come with so much force - both corners and normal flanks are always a fire hazard.


Dribble (10/10): As I said ... the ball sticks to his foot. Super unique running movements and animations, which, coupled with his physique, simply offer him a nice combination. : wink:


Pass (10/10): For me it works best in formations with a two storm. He has over 90 passes and that makes his combination game extremely strong. If it doesn't get out of motion, you can play it as a super pass against low-lying opponents, simply shield the ball and work with double passes or as a ball distributor. I've also tried it out 10/15 games as a 10. Also worked wonderfully.


Def (7/10): It's not his job, but because of his weight and height he also likes to get the second ball. His long legs are very useful when pressing.



Physis (10/10): As I said ... nothing and nobody can stop this man. With his head through the wall works for him in 2 out of 3 cases. He doesn't lose any headers either - instead of short kicks, I hit him for a long time and really win every header and I'm right in the dangerous third. Simply strong. Conclusion: For me he is just a unique type of player and something completely different from a Mbappe, Neymar & Co. Would most likely compare him to CR7, but he is simply more physically active and relies less on top speed. Finally, you have to give it a 10/10 in the fun factor. And that's the most important thing in FIFA in the end. : wink:
