James Rodriguez has received an SBC in FIFA 21's Ultimate Team as a special Ones To Watch card!

The Colombian has had a torrid time in recent years trying to find somewhere to call home and it seems he's finally found it at Goodison Park.

The Everton playmaker has been in fantastic form so far this season and the future is looking bright for the 29-year-old.

Let's take a look at the best solution.

Dates

The James Rodriguez SBC went live on the 16th October at 6 pm BST.

It is set to expire on Tuesday 20th October at 5.59pm BST.

Review

So is it worth it? For me, it's a no unless you're a big fan of the player or Everton. It's a fantastic card that will likely get many more in-forms throughout the season.

While the technical stats are superb, his pace is a problem that holds him back from breaking into the meta.

The 2-star weak-foot is also a bit off-putting and there seems to be more to lose from this card than to gain.

This SBC also costs a TOTW to obtain, which if you don't have in your club already, can cost a minimum of 10,000 coins.
