He TALL, he FAST, he SKILLFULL
This dude is epic, i'm not even kidding. His trademarks are mantioned above. I mean you gotta try him. In his price range he is easily one of the sickest cards i've used.
He feels "very clean" and some of his shots are way to hot for the actual stade of FIFA. Especially if you like to skill a bit, you gonna like him alot.
And don't get scared by his Weak Foot, its pretty lit to be honest. Like in most cases it feels even better than freaking 2 Bamboos or whatever the Signs should be.
"His Card is very hot" or "Damn, who dat Player" gonna be sentences, you will hear often whilest using him; your friends and supporters are going to be amaized.
Sick Feeling controlling him
Kinda Sick Weak Foot considering it should be 2 Bamboos (i really don't know what the signs should represent)
Weak Foot: I mean he aint a 5 Bamboo Weak Foot Player like this Valencia rigthback dude
Gonna need a towel whilest having him in your team; he is "very hot"
And you gonna have some less concentration due to people that comment about how sick he is, when you play
I was lucky enough to get an untradeable version of the PTG in a pack. At the time he already had an IF card, so it was like hitting the jackpot. I used to have a Bundesliga left flank with Schmelzer and Raphael Guerreiro. Guerreiro is amazing player, both defensively and on the attack, but his low pace was hindering my game. I replaced him with El Shaarawy just to try it out and was amazed.
Shaarawy is blazing fast. Super agile with the ball on his feet. Dribbles and passes well. But what I found at a later stage was that he scores tons of goals. He often finds himself completely alone on the left side of the penalty area, quick sprints that leave all the defenders behind, to finish off a through ball into the far post. It never fails!
His DEF rating is not very high, but due to his speed and agility he easily positions himself side by side with the attackers and steals the ball, which is nice from a defending point of view but also good for a quick counter.
He's often Man of the Match. This was the best card I ever got in a SBC! I gave him the Catalyst style to increase his pace and passing and I don't feel like changing anything. Works great for my formation and tactic.
Fast, agile, good dribbler.
Not too bad at stealing balls in the midfield.
Often leaves the defenders behind as he rushes into the penalty area for a through ball, which he scores almost every single time, with the left or right foot.
Not very physical
Could have better defending rating
I got lucky to pull IF El Shaarawy from a pack. I thought it was a decent pull so I decided to try him before selling him. He was not fitting well in my LaLiga and Bundesliga fitness-squad, so I put him on the bench.
When my ST didn't perform, El Shaarawy did. 19 goals in 16 games as a sub speak for itself. He is quick, super skillfull and his positioning and finishing are awesome. He can make a difference in a game. You will be surprised how often he's creating chances.
So sad that he's in Calcio A. But if you are rocking the Italian league, he might be your CR7 (for now).
I can totally recommend this card.
