FIFA 21 FUT Freeze: Jesus Navas SBC - Cheapest Solution, Requirements, Expiry Date, Player Review & more

This FUT Freeze promo continues to deliver some very strange cards.

We thought a striker Jose Gaya was the strangest we'd see, but a centre back Jesus Navas might just take the biscuit!

FUT Freeze Jesus Navas Information

The former Manchester City man has spent some time playing fullback in Seville, but few would've had him as a centre half!

EA do though, and that's all that matters. Here is what you need to know.

Start & Expiry Date

Start Date: Thursday, December 17 - 6pm GMT

Expiry Date: Thursday, December 24 - 6pm GMT

Player Review

It's a hefty price tag compared to most we've seen in FUT Freeze so far, but is Navas worth it?

Let's start with the positives, Navas has incredible speed for a centre back (83 OVR) coupled with some very good defensive capabilities (85 OVR) and 80-rated physicality - including a whopping +38 to Navas' strength (77 OVR).

For those who like a ball playing centre half, you'll struggle to find many better thanks to Navas' 83-rated dribbling and 79-rated passing. 4* skills for a centre back isn't half bad either!

Now the negatives, and there's one that stands out amongst the rest.

Navas is just 5'8". Which means he's going to be dominated in the air from crosses and corners. With crossing very overpowered in the current meta, this could be a big issue.

His medium attacking work-rate isn't great either, but it's not the worst thing in the world.

Worth it?

Is Navas worth it? We'd say yes, but ONLY if you pair him with a big, powerful centre back.

Pairing him with a Jules Kounde would be great for links, but the pair will be dominated from set-pieces.

Navas and Ramos however, could be a very good pairing!
