As for Prime Becks, you're looking at a 92-rated RM card with some sensational stats, none more so than that 95-rated passing!

3* 3*

Those eagled eye readers amongst you may have noticed the rather disappointing weak foot and skill moves ratings.

3* for both looks set to be the way across all three of Beckham's cards, which isn't ideal.

Beckham lacks the blistering pace to burst past his marker down that right flank and, with just 3* skill moves, he doesn't have the knowhow to pull out those niche skill moves either.

His high-rated passing should atone for that poor weak foot if you're playing him centrally, but it's still far from ideal for a high-rated ICON.
