He's back. Acuna is well and truly back, most people will remember him for his dominance in the final few months of fifa 21 but he made a few appearances in earlier titles too, this headliners version is advertised as a left back but trust me you will want to play him CDM/CM in game, I used him in a 442 alongside gravenberch with him on stay back and cover centre to do the dirty work in the midfield, i came into this expecting him to be good, but my word not this good,
Pace: 9.5/10 He was rapid with a shadow chemistry style, he could catch up to quick attackers in a blitz so he is near perfect in this regard.
Shooting: 6/10 I found his shooting quite lack-luster and he missed a few chances here and there in front of goal but since i had him on stay back this wasn't a massive problem for me.
Passing: 9/10 I expected his passing to be perfect but he did miss a few easy passes here and there but nobody is perfect as he totally made up for this by many exquisite through balls played through to George Best (Who might be the best player i have ever used).
Dribbling: 10/10 His dribbling is just the stuff of dreams, he feels so silky and smooth on the ball, he weaves through players like a needle. Paired with the fact he is 5'8 it is just perfect!
Defending: 9.8/10 His interceptions are crazy, its like he has a third leg, comparable to kante, you don't expect him to make an interception but out of nowhere he makes some inhuman stretch to make sure he wins the ball. His tackling is also amazing, the opposition think they are through and then they see acuna, hardly ever misses a tackle.
Physicality: 9/10 I was blown away by how strong he feels considering he is only 5'8, can give players like Lukaku a run for their money, 95 stamina means he can run all day long too. He's like a wasp.
