    Depends on the mechanics of the game zidane in past years probably would have been a very good cam but this year compared to other top icon cams he’s not very good because the meta. If the meta is the same he won’t be good if it’s like past years where strength is important than he has potential

    As he is most hyped new icon by EA I suspect he will have some good ratings.

    Whether he is quality in game or not is dependent on the meta I guess.

    Surely the meta has always been pace
    Wondering what pace he will have ?

    Cf are normally the one for primes so I reckon he will be good , also if they have gone out of the way to pay him to narrate over the trailer I don’t think they will make him bad

    Surely his stats will be closest to Bergkamp?

    Think a bit of over excitement for cantona only really an icon for Man U fans. Shouldn’t be higher than 91 for prime imo. International career wasn’t anything great either just don’t get the fuss over this card

    Yes agreed to a certain extent.

    A class player, who had some special moments and a catalyst for Man Utd's transformation in the early 90s, but overall record maybe not the very best.

    Having said that, the chip, the volley and the kung-fu kick will be forever etched in my mind and I am an Arsenal fan, so go figure...

    I agree. Cantona is a legend, but not in the same tier as Zidane, Henry and even Bergkamp.

    But he is a main icon so he will be top tier I believe.

    His prime should be a 91 at most. Wouldn't have him level with Bergkamp.

    More importantly I'm hoping they fix crap like Kaka 91. Why they don't ever adjust icon stats and ratings I have no idea.

    I loved Bergkamp, but to say he was a tier above Cantona is ludicrous, some of us actually are old enough to remember Cantona week in and out

    Honestly I think people have forgotten just how good Cantona was. The idea that Bergkamp is a level above is madness.

    they will sell this as fifa 23 feature: we readjusted previous Icons stats more in line with their career moments based on community feedback


    and everyone will be happy yaaay and preorder fifa again


    criminal that Henry still has 66 or something balance with M/M and Nesta has 38 agility with 72 pace, Puyol 70 pace when he was rapid, Kaka with 91 pace when he was burning defenders left and right with his speed

    Cantona

    Technical dribbler, flair, chip shot, clinical finisher, playmaker, solid player, team leader. Maybe outside of foot shot or a free kick trait, power header.

    How good the card is depends on balance and agility. But traits and specialities make a card. Summer heat ibra proves that.

    His moments card will be fa cup final goal against Liverpool.

    86/88/90 should be his cards but they'll probably be plus 1.

    6'1 med/low. 5 star skills 4 star weak foot. Low 80s for pace but finishing, passing, dribbling, strength all around 90. Should be a good card. 2 up top Cantona false 9. All good.

    Care to elaborate? What was Bergkamp so much better than Cantona at? I mean they played a similar position but Cantona was undoubtedly the better finisher, he was stronger so more versatile, definitely better in the air. I mean Bergkamp maybe had the edge on technical ability but that wasn’t exactly a flaw in Cantonas game.
