Thats what i call a forward. So at first i loved his NIF and when i saw in the Futmas leaks Zlatan get a card well i was hyped.
So at first Zlatan is the best forward i have used in Fifa 18. His Shooting is incredible. His passing is amazing. His strength is like he is a tank. And the best his agility is also very good.
I think if you take a look on the shooting stats you will know what i mean. 87 Finishing and 92 Shot Power it feels like a bullet if he take a shot. His dribbling and ball holding is on point. I play him in a 4-3-1-2 as ST and he can hold the ball and play a dangerous pass to beat the defense. I never played a ST with such an amazing pass. 87 Vision and 88 Short passing... Wow! His dribbling is perfect you can easily use L2R2 dribbling and hold the ball.
If he lost the ball he will try to get the ball back. His Aggression and strength ist great.
So whats about the work rates and Stamina? Well his Stamina is okay. 71 Stamina but in game you dont realize it. Zlatan can play 120 minutes without any problems. The work rates well here its the point of view. With Med / Low he dont run forward to the target but thats what makes this card so great. You know everytime where Zlatan is. And like i already said you can do anything with this guy. He can play as CAM and ST in one.
Well he has 4* skills and 4* weak foot. The Skills i dont care cause i dont use skill moves only L2R2 dribbling and here the skills doesnt matter. The Weak foot is important for me. I dont like forwards with lower than 4*. And Zlatan can shoot with both feets.
At least the pace... Well i dont like to play only pace. I dont like Forwards who only pace through the defence cause they have bad Shooting or Passing. With Hunter he has enough pace to play a counter attack but he doesnt can run through the defence. So if you search for a pace forward dont use Zlatan!
At least i dont feel a difference between this card and the NIF. Maybe the passing is better.
Pace (if you need it)
