I selled Firmino TOTGS for this Challenge and I was a little bit scared because of his weak foot.
But his right foot is not feeling like 2 stars weak foot, more than 4 Stars.
He scores more goals with his right than with his left (because Im dumb and shoot with this foot :D).
I like how fast he is, when he gets the ball just run away from the defense and score from 10-20 meters.
Long shots are not the best, its feeling ugly, but close to the goal he is one of the best striker in Fifa yet!
His Physik is not very good, he gets pushed away ffrom the defenders, but with Finisher chemstyle he is strong like Lukaku!
Im very happy with him, when he is in bad positioning, he can make very good passes and that is what many striker not have.
He is perfect for my team, I love this man!
-With Finisher strong
-Good weak foot
-4 stars skill
-175cm, headers are hard.
I did his SBC for around 250k. Which is pretty costly but now I really think it was a good idea. I played 140 games and scored 190 goals with him, in few different squads.
Pace : His pace is obviously pretty good but his pace let him down. Many times the defenders push him and get the ball even if he has way less pace.
Shoot : His finishing is unbelievable... With his left foot. His right foot is not that horrible, but you better have to use his left one. His finesse is amazing. And his long shots are alright.
Passing : Didn't noticed any problems with his passing, it's good but nothing special to say.
Dribbling : If you dribble just with the left stick, his dribbling is very good. His very agile.
Defending : Not relevant for a striker in my opinion.
Physical : His strength is not very helpful, in some circumstances it's a problem. During counters when his against a defender, the defender push him and get the ball. It's pretty frustrating in tight games.
His stamina is really good he runs fast during the whole 90 minutes.
But overall I'm really happy with him, and with Neymar and Mbappé, they are a deadly upfront trio.
Geez. Where do I begin?
I am not the greatest FIFA player. I like to play a patient, possession style, tiki-taka football. Until this week I used OTW Morata up top, and I've tried OTW Laca, Aguero, IF Jesus - I just always found I preferred Morata for his all-roundness. In a fit of rage at going from Div 1 champion to Div 3 in 2 seasons, and my players feeling like they'd struggle to play a 3 yard pass without messing it up, I sold my squad and decided to build a team around this guy.
Do I regret it? Heeeeeeell no.
This man is outrageously good. Seriously. Put it on his left, hit O and celebrate your goal.
He's amazing. Buy him. Now.
And then thank me in January when Salah gets and upgrade and this card goes up to a 90.
- Pace - I have HAWK on him, so 99 acc + 99 sprint speed. I mean yeah. Good luck catching him. Add in Speed Dribbler and he's even more dangerous.
- Shooting - amazing, flawless from close range. Long range is a massive upgrade on his non-IF.
- Heading - weirdly, it's fantastic. I've scored 3 headers with this guy in 10 games. I wouldn't recommend focusing on that aspect though.
- Dribbling - yep, unreal, no cons.
- Passing - if he's not scoring, he's assisting.
- Other - he's ALWAYS where you need him to be. #whatALad
- Weak Foot - But I imagine this will be upped to 3* in January/February.
- Strength - usually he's actually pretty fine, but when up against the likes of Koulibally/Bailly etc etc, he will struggle as expected. I barely notice it because I change my playstyle to avoid these confrontations, but it is *technically* a con.
I wasn't planning on doing his SBC but I couldn't resist that pace. The SBC cost me around 100k as I had a few untradeable special cards that I was never going to use. First game I used him he was incredible, scored a hat-trick, threading through balls from my Hagi into millions of space and Salah using his lightning speed to latch onto them and beat the keeper.
At first I was a bit sceptical with his 2* WF but he has managed to score low drivens and volleys with his right foot with a good amount of power and I don't feel much effect in fast passing and movement play. I play him as a RS for chem reasons, and that is great for cutting inside and finessing and I have also switched him in game a few times to see how he performs on his strong foot and he is just as good, I recommend playing a 1-2 pass just outside the box and smashing it first time on his left as his 94 finishing means he can bury pretty much every chance he gets.
He's been great this weekend league for me and I would highly recommend him to everyone, and again don't be put off by 2* WF.
Weak Foot (not a massive problem)
Mo Salah Is God!
Although the SBC costs a lot of coins he is definitely worth it.
He scores for fun. Even though I already have an awesome team Salah replaced shevchenko and has definitely "filled his boots" If you have the coins I definitely recommend picking POTM Salah up.
(I used him in Division 2 in Online seasons)
Pace - Can pretty much get past anyone.
Dribbling - His dribbling is great and he is very agile.
Shooting - If you get a shot off from in or on the edge of the box its probably going in.
Weak Foot - 2* weak foot isn't great but he can still score with his right foot
Strength - Sometimes he does feel a little weak.
Defending - He doesn't need good defending anyway, hes a striker
