Number of PlayStyles+Maximum 0

Take a look at who we recommend below.

Kieran Tierney (OVR 80)

Our top pick to use in the FC 24 Trailblazer Slide Tackler Evolution is Kieran Tierney. Not only does he have some of the highest in-game stats of the available players, but he has top PlayStyles including Jockey and Rapid (and Long Throw, but we’re not bothered about that!). Stick a Shadown on him and he gains the stats of an 88-rated full-back. Unfortuntely, his Scottish nationality will by tough to link with the best players in the game, although he is playing in LaLiga.

Robin Gosens (OVR 79)

If you’re looking for an all-rounder to have on the flank of your Bundesliga squad, then puttin Robin Gosens through the Evolution could come in handy. The German will be very solid on the wing defensively, with a Shadow giving him the attributes of an 87-rated full-back and CB!

Olga Carmona (OVR 79)

There is a trio of decent Spanish players you could use from Liga F in the Trailblazers Slide Tackler Evolution, all with pretty similar stats. We think Olga Carmona just pips the others, as it will be easiler to link her to other top players from Real Madrid. However, Andrea Medina and Paula Tomas have better defensive PlayStyles. Olga Carmona will be absolutely rapid with a Shadow on her, with 96 PAC accompanying her 86 DEF.
