The Impact:

Yakubu scored a bevy of goals for Blackburn Rovers in their Premier League match vs. Swansea City, four of them to be exact. He scored two via his head, once off a penalty, and one laser from the top of the box which ended up upper 90 right below the woodwork and the far post. His quadruple effort was enough to boost Blackburn Rovers past Swansea, 4-2.

Yakubu in FIFA12:

Yakubu in FIFA12 doesn't have the speed, the skills, or the attributes that you tend to look for in a player, but, as the saying goes "you cannot judge a book from its cover". Yakubu in FIFA12 is an absolute beast. The man is seemingly impossible to push off the ball and his right foot produces lasers and splendid finishes from all over the box. This Nigerian man child is 6'0" tall and has 84 strength, which seems to play much higher in the game. His three star skills limit his ability to put on dribbling clinics to the naked eye, but, I went back to the old faithful fake shot at carved through my opponents defense with ease with Yakubu. The man may only have 75 finishing but as I was playing with him on his resident club of Blackburn and on my Nigerian Ultimate team squad I cannot say I recall him missing a true scoring opportunity. His only eye popping statistic is his shot power, where he is rewarded with an 86 rating in said category. Overall, I can say Yakubu is a monster on FIFA12. I almost want to go as far as calling him my personal version of the infamous FIFA legend Heskey!
