Best Power-Up: Defensive Rock - Chester scores highly for his defensive actions, particularly tackles and interceptions. If you pick 10 minutes of the game where Portugal are on top, you should gain a good advantage.

Verdict: Good second pick - Okay, so you're not going to pick James Chester over Ronaldo or Bale. But if you're running out of options for your second pick, you could do much worse than James Chester.
