While the exact overall rating and attributes of the card are unknown, FUT Sheriff included a prediction that suggests the 87-rated version will possess the following key stats:

  • Pace: 91
  • Dribbling: 92
  • Shooting: 84
  • Defending: 46
  • Passing: 86
  • Physicality: 74

It is yet to be disclosed whether Iwobi will receive five-star skill moves or a five-star weak foot. Based on the pace and dribbling-based meta of FIFA 23, gamers will be hoping that the former is true, as it is crucial in breaking down the opposition's defense on the virtual pitch.

How will the card perform in-game?

Depending on the stats and boosts provided to this FUT Birthday card, Iwobi has the potential to be a viable winger in FIFA 23. He has the pace and dribbling skills to create space on the flanks as well as the passing and shooting skills to create goal-scoring chances.

If the card is easy to unlock, he will undoubtedly be extremely popular with FUT fans, especially if he possesses five-star skill moves.
