Italy's number 7 was a force to be reckoned with, winning the 2006 FIFA World Cup and cementing his legacy as an Icon of the game.
The SBC is expensive, coming in at a price of 598.6K coins and needs 8 segments to unlock the card.
He has some incredible stats and characteristics such as:
- 85 Sprint Speed and 84 Acceleration makes him reasonably quick over short distances in midfield
- 93 Positioning, 94 Finishing, 85 Shot Power and 90 Long Shots with the Finesse Shot PlayStyles makes him incredibly lethal both inside the box and at range
- 90+ in ALL in-game passing stats aside from his 81 Long Passing along with Long Ball PlayStyles+ makes him an incredible ball distributor
- 88 Reactions, 94 Ball Control, 94 Dribbling and 92 Composure with the First Touch, Flair and Technical PlayStyles makes him very responsive on the ball
- An asset from set pieces with 92 Freekick Accuracy and the Dead Ball PlayStyles
- 4-Star Skill Moves and 5-Star Weak Foot is really good for an attacking midfielder
- High/Medium Workrates are ideal for an attacking midfielder
His ideal position in game would be as a central CAM in a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3(4) setup. It will allow him to exercise his incredible ball distribution while also being in position for long range shots at the edge of the box.
He has a similar player profile to that of Winter Wildcards Icon Marco van Basten. They share a similar stat distribution, with Del Piero having better workrates and Weak Foot while van Basten having a taller physique.
The card has it's share of drawbacks such as:
- 5'9 With 77 Heading Accuracy and 58 Jumping makes him a non-entity in the air
- 83 Agility and 80 Balance makes him slightly heavy while turning
- 82 Stamina means you will need to substitute him at 65 minutes in midfield
- 64 Strength and 58 Aggression means he will easily lose the ball to strong defenders

Winter Wildcards Icon Del Piero: Complete or Yeet?
This version is a significant upgrade over his Base Icon version, fixing issues such as his workrates and boosting his Balance but even with that, the card is left with a lot of weaknesses. To then price it at almost four times the price of his Base Icon means that this SBC is just not worth it. My verdict: YEET!
