Player Review

There is more to Alex Iwobi's FUT Birthday item than meets the eye as it boasts identical stats to that of his uncle Jay-Jay Okocha's World Cup Hero item in FUT 23!

Iwobi boasts an 89 OVR, including 92 Acceleration and 96 Dribbling, which coupled with his new 5-Star Skill Moves will make him a nightmare to try and tackle.

We aren't sure what position is best-suited for Iwobi though, as his 83 Short Passing and 79 Long Passing aren't exactly eye-catching for a midfielder.

81 Crossing also leaves a lot to be desired should you wish to use him in his alternate position of RM.

His other alternate position is as a striker, but just 80 Finishing is simply not high enough to use him there!

However, if you like to play direct, then Iwobi's dribbling attributes and 90 Long Shots could come in very handy indeed when deployed behind a central striker.
