88 - Icon
Mid Rio Ferdinand
By LoftusBumCheeks, 09-01-2022

I have now used over 900 games with him now as I was lucky enough to pack him on release day and he still remains in my starting 11 as he is the best CB i have used in fifa 22. His mix of pace and good defending and physicality stats help him fit into the meta. He is a total of 7 icon swaps and i could not recommend him more and is an option you should consider as he is not as much of a grind as the likes of Del Piero, Zambrotta and Rooney. 88 reactions and 90 interceptions also means no through ball gets past him and obviously he links to everyone as he is an icon meaning he is useful for hybrids.

You might see that I have used Rio for over 100 games, the only reason I am writing the review now is because I wanted to write one, but wasn...

Absolute beast of a cb. Enough pace to keep up with any forward, great strength and defending. If you have the icon swaps tokens to get him, get him. He is the best cb ive used in probably any fifa. 6'2 is enough to win headers against pretty much an striker, his positioning is great as well, never to far forward or back. Interceptions are always on point. Would recommend getting him if you need a strong cb. Occasionally mi...

Slow and disappointing

I used him in pair with Varane and had high expectations due to exceptional reviews and feedbacks. However, I was disappointed by mid Ferdi. He feels clunky in game and is hard to control him. Moreover, he had cause many troubles when conceding crosses into the box, having lost his position or the player that later on scored a header. This are the main disadvantages of him. On the other hand, he is good at 1v1 situations a...
