FIFA Legends: Andreas Brehme, The Andy


The Legends are some of the best players of all time. They’re an Xbox (360 & One) exclusive content due to a contract between Microsoft and EA Sports. Since these cards represent the best moment of a footballer’s career, some of them cost quite a lot. Legends are available on the transfer market and can also be found in packs. The chemistry between players is a crucial point in order for you to overcome your opponent’s team. In that sense, the Legends have a positive impact on your game experience for they represent greater possible team variations, this way you don’t have to worry as much about chemistry.

In several drafts or in the highest online season divisions we come across these Legends in the opponent’s team and many times we end up wondering why is it that they chose that special card in particular. You may have watched documentaries about them, done some researching like me, but we do know one thing about these players: they made history and a difference for football. But what even is this new series’ objective, since after all we have the internet to give us any answers we’d like? It’s simple! Gathering information, discovering new idols and sharing some in game experience.

Here we’ll tell, fortnightly, a little bit of the history of these players. We’ll also make comments on the cards and their squad role possibilities according to attributes, their transfer market values and everything with images, links and videos to show the career of every Legend. It is on! Legends: from A to Z!

FC Kaiserslautern (81-86), Bayern Munich (86-88), Internazionale (88-92), Real Zaragoza(92-93) and 1. FC Kaiserslautern once again (93-98). There were two particularly emblematic moments along his journey: Andy won the Italian national league playing for Internazionale in 88-89 and won in two consecutive years two divisions of the German league for 1. FC Kaiserslautern. The first title got the club out of a 9 years period without titles and also gave Andreas Brehme the award of best player of the year in the Serie A. Then, his biggest achievement: winning Germany’s third World Cup title. One crucial goal to level up the semifinal and one converted penalty in the final were enough to carve Andy’s name in the history of football.

Player characteristics

Andy is a full back that can be used on both sides of the pitch, for he’s a player with 5 stars of weak foot. However, his work rates are a bit preoccupying, high for attack and medium for defence. Therefore be careful on what type of formation you choose and also the instructions you’re giving Brehme. Precise long shots, effective crossings and tackles are three of his exceptional qualities. With his 176cm of height and 81 of jumping, he’s not a very good option for air balls, so you might want to just leave the counter attacks for him. Andreas is also a remarkable penalty taker. If you don’t already have a long distance free kick taker, don’t ever think twice before selecting him.
