He literally was the worst gk i ve ever used in fifa ... i used his 84 if and his 86 if ..his 84 was amazing his 86 was disappointing and when i saw his 87 i said i would give him another chance 4 matches in i had conceded 18 goals ... he was the most unstable keeper i have seen he couldnt stop a shot it was as if his arms were too weak and the ball was going in along with his hands... Long shots were a no no for him as well and low driven shots were something that he should definetly add to his training cause he certainly has never opposed one ....
His reactions were amazing(Although this didnt help him cause everything else was literally ....)
His handling was awful
His positioning as well
Everything else was bad ....
Possibly the best card FIFA has produced! His shooting ability seems better then Pele's! Plus a FK accuracy of 99! He is the heart of my team (and I have Lewandowski, Messi, Maradona and many more working around him!

What is this card? why release it now? whatever the reason might be. I have never come across a card like this one. I have never played with Prime Gullit so i cant say much but i have played with every version of Naingollan. And very very frankly, this card is way better than Radja's TOTS card. I can only see the price of this card rising and the card itself going into extinction. I got him for 167k and i thought that was too steep seeing that someone had sniped him for 140k. i have never in my life spent 167k more wisely. The other reviewer put it very mildly that EA doesnt care atm and it really shows in this card. This dude can hold off Blanc and Desailly while turning and providing and inch perfect pass to TOTS Firmino. Sweet Jesus!! What a card!! WHAT A CARD!!!
Do i really have to do this?
Maybe his work rates? Heading? (i'm trying my best here)
i was looking at completing this sbc since it came out and i finally decided to complete it. What a good choice it was. For 70k this is a steal for a card like this. He is a better version of patrick vieira (baby version). He feels so good on the ball, he can thread through passes better than vieira can, he intercepts the ball and is always in the right position defensively. What i enjoy about this card more than patrick vieira is the 4* weak foot, he can pass with his left or right, also how great he feels on the ball compared to vieira. What i have noticed differently with this card compared to vieira is how he contributes to the build up play, from the middle of the pitch he helps push the ball forward with good runs but he does not push up to far when in the final third so he can drop back to defense when its needed. I used anchor on him, it would probably be the best chem style for him because it ups his pace and makes his defensive stats crazy with upping his aggression, strength and jumping. I don't think a shadow is worth it because it doesn't change the pace of the card that much and it doesn't upgrade with physicality stats.
After EA started releasing these special classic cards I decided to play the game again, lets face it, the game is pretty much dead by now. But these new cards make the game worth playing again, if only for a little while. I sold most of my icon cards and bought these classic hero cards. This Rooney card is what his prime icon card will look like in a couple of years. He's a complete BEAST in almost every aspect of the game. Sometimes he feels like a cheat card, defenders can't handle him. I played 11 games with him and scored 14 times with 9 assists. I played him at CAM but you cam play him at Striker too. Actually you can play him at every position you want, he's great everywhere. I played him at striker my last game and he scored a hattrick + 1 assist. I'm now considering using him as a striker permanently. I would compare him to R9 ronaldo 94 Icon card. As strange as that might sound it's the closes I can come to another FIFA card. R9 94 is a bit stiff in dribbling and it's the same with Rooney. But to be honest, I actually like it. His dribbling style is unique. I'm looking forward to having this Icon card in the game in a few years time.
Finishing (Everything goes in)
