Player Review

Here is our rundown on OTW James Rodriguez!


Card Overview

It's hard to review OTW cards, given that they are subject to change at any time.

But if we're going of real-life form, James is certainly looking sharp, and that can only mean good things for those who are looking at picking this card up.

Let's get the negatives out of the way first. James' pace is absolutely dreadful. But thankfully, the slow-paced meta in FIFA 21 makes up for this somewhat.

His first inform brought his pace up by five ratings, a couple more could see James up at an 87 or 88 overall with 65+ pace which, for around a 20k investment seems pretty good to us!

Let's not forget he also has a monster 88 shooting, 88 dribbling and 88 passing.

That 2* weak foot isn't great though.


Worth it?

For around the 20k mark it's an investment that we would recommend for sure.

He's not the greatest CAM in the world, but the chances are, he's going to get better!
