89 - Rare
88 Sprint speed is a saviour
By ProsserTT, 29-09-2021

Virgil Van Dijk. A card I was lucky enough to pack in my untradeable 50k pack from the bronze and silver objectives, which I recommend you complete. although 66 acceleration is not ideal, once he gets going he can pretty much catch up to anyone with his 88 sprint speed. his passing is second to none. switches and lb+y with big Virgil is a cheat code. his weak foot isn't too bad but I wouldn't rely on it all the time. as long as you have a partnering CB who is more mobile you'll find conceding is a rare occasion. from corners, as long as he's in front of his man you've got a goal. his unique body type really compliments his stats. I like moving the ball up with my CBs and when he's on the ball moving into midfield he rarely misplaces the pass or gives it away. Now onto defending. as long as your decent at defending on this game I can't see you having any complaints. his 6'4 from allows him to dangle a leg and get the ball 9/10 with the odd occasion of EA aids.

Insane defender. Used him next to moments maldini in weekend league and the partnership was insane. Wins every tackle he goes into, intercepts anything close to him, can be beat by through balls though so some manual run tracking is helpful. Feels good enough on the ball for a CB and usually passes the ball well enough. Scored a few headers off corners as well so that was a bonus

He just EATS people alive

This man is the GOAT in my defense. I was lucky enough to pack him in my prime gaming pack and have played 96 games with him by now. First I was a bit concerned about his pace (sad enough), when opponents using meta CB's with 85 pace all time. But now I'm just overwhelmed how good VVD is. He is a very aggressive CB, who puts lots of pressure on strikers getting the ball from a midfielder. But these tacklings are just great ...

Unbelievable - even in February

Lemme tell you, i could afford any defender i want, but this man will never leave my defense. Packed him untradebale in week 2, have played 563 games with him and he is just pure class.At the current stage of the game, he has to give it all against the likes of TOTY Mbappe and Flashback Neymar, but its just like he plays every game like his 18/19 season, in which not one single player could dribble past hi...
