Ok, I read a negative review about this Salah card and instantly thought, "is this person okay". He claimed that hero salah was better than otw and that hero card stinks. He also mentioned he could not score long shots. In truth Salah scores 90% of the times he gets a clean shot, which is 95% of the time as he has the "i dont lose the ball trait". As a gold 1 fut champs player, i have played against all center backs in the game. He just runs by them. His finesse and long shots are overpowered and shot power and finishing is unfair. I admit I am hesitant to shot righty but it usually is okay. On the counter he is just unfair. Also play him at ST, not cam or lw or rw. ST.
He is a bad goalie
So I invested in the OTW Salah card at the beginning of the season after watching the form he was in for Liverpool and his rating has gone from strength to strength. This 93 rated card however, is this full package and is everything you need to dominate your opponents defence.
I'm not one to use many skills when on the attack, so Salah is the perfect player for me as he seems to walk around defenders effortlessly much like in real life.
I've used Salah in many positions, but he is well suited in the ST/RF position where you can really make the most of the gifts he has to offer. I find playing up front with a fellow striker is the best way to compliment Salah's pace and finishing, someone like Harry Kane who will be able to hold up the play so that Salah can break away from the defenders and pound in the goals.
His shooting is out of this world and it is very rare that a shot is missed when on his left peg and surprisingly he is decent at headers considering he's only 5'8".
The PERFECT sub - If you don't plan on having a prem team where Salah will fit, it's worth buying him as a sub if you have the coins to spare, he is ridiculously CHEAP considering his stats and he will certainly be a player that can come on and change the game and add a whole new depth to your attack.
Pace Pace Pace
I purchased OTW Salah for 280k as an investment and to use in my team and he plays amazingly well. His pace and skill moves get him through so many tight situations and when he is in space he can run at the opponents goal and you can be sure that he will score.
Although he has a 2 star weak foot for me it feels like a 3 as he dosen't struggle to score on it one weakness about him is that he is quite weak although usually he will outrun the defender anyways.
My final point is that he has amazing stamina so you will have bis blistering pace for the whole game long.
Overall i would strongly advise you to buy either his purple or OTW(just get him before he gets a brace and an assist).
Very high chance of going 420k plus!!!
Not always the best cross
This man is lightning quick! He outruns every single defender you will meet. He is agile, and a big threat on goal. He can curve from the right side, low-driven shots, even right-footed shots go in. The 2-star weak foot is a lie. This card can shoot with his left, his right, even his head is pretty decent. He is a great addition to whichever team, and might become even more op as the winter upgrades are coming up soon. Unfortunately, there are some downsides with this card too. His stamina is not always the best. He gets tired really quick, and gets pushed off the ball often too. His longshots are not that great, but that isn't very important. His finishing stat might be low, but in-game with hawk chem style on, he is a beast!
Heading (Better than expected)
OTW Salah (89 rated at time of review) is one of the best cards I've used this fifa, he can outpace nearly everyone and with 89 stamina you can run with him all day long.
His dribbling feels like that of 95 rated Neymar, it's so easy to dance around defenders with him then burst away with the pace.
His short passing and vision are good however long passes and crossing are not the best.
His shooting is something else as I play him with a Finisher chem style every time I shoot the ball seems to find the back of the net also combined with the finesse shot trait most finesses find the top bins.
His Physical is not the best but not the worst, but combined with the Finisher chem style he has 96 Jumping and 81 strength which means he is decent for headers and you can protect the ball with him.
2* Weak foot
