Best dribblers

  • Joao Plata, 76 dribbling
  • Albert Rusnak, 75 dribbling
  • Nick Rimando, 74 dribbling (!)
  • Damir Kreilach, 71 dribbling

Takeaways

  • Nick Rimando with 74 dribbling is simply remarkable. I don’t think it’s entirely accurate, but it’s also not entirely inaccurate. How great is that. When I play FIFA 19, I’m going to dribble up-field with Rimando and score a goal. It’ll never work, but I’m going to do it anyway.
  • Joao Plata is listed as an incredibly fast player, but I do wonder if he’s the fastest we have.
  • Albert Rusnak is our top player. Any surprises? No. But we have a number of players with numbers around him, and that’s pretty cool. We do have a team with a lot of raw talent.
