As a certified akinfenwa connoisseur (check out my previous fifa review of akinfenwa; 300 games), i am literally on the verge of tears that our absolute dear beast himself is retiring at the end of the season. a man of such physique given legendary status in MEMEry by baldski that FIFA would create their own body type for him. I can tell you, last year, the absolute best thing about RB akinfenwa was his shot cancels into a turn and shoot. This year, not only can he do that, you can use his gargantuan body type and do the OP roulette, probably smother Ramos to kingdom come and bang one top bins. But the MOST important thing is that this year, Akinfenwa can pass. HE CAN PASS!!! We're not talking KDB but he can play a sleek short pass with ease. I will say like usual, the downsides of Akinfenwa's bodytype give him a very short reach due to his short legs and stout frame. He is hard-pressed to win a header despite his heading accuracy and jumping. Furthermore, his interceptions and stand tackling are quite poor due to the body type. You need to make sure Akinfenwa gets to a lobbed ball convincingly before volleying it, or he would simply fail to stretch his puny stem of a leg and make him look a fool. His physicals are great when facing away from the opponent's net and shielding, although tall and strong defenders like Van Dijk can still manage to push the ball off of him. He will make shorter CBs like Cordoba or even Maldini look silly if they try to tackle by force. ALL IN ALL, this is a brilliant card that you should complete to commemorate the career of the BEAST himself. LASTLY, GOOD LUCK IN WEMBLEY, Akinfenwa and Wycombe. A win in wembley would be a dream sendoff for the BEAST!!!
