About a week ago I bought TIF Sonaldo after reading a bunch of reviews with him, watching youtube reviews etc.
I was so dissappointed, as he was my favourite player from FIFA 17, but I just wasn't satisfied with his performance.
So I decided to sell Sonaldo and buy PTG Rashford instead. Boy, that was a good move. I can now play once again this game with joy.
Marcus Rashford is a remarcable player. I start games with 4-3-2-1 for chemestry purposes, but I swich in game with 4-1-2-1-2 (2) with OTW Salah at LS and PTG Rashford at RS, while PTG Firmino is used as CAM.
He is so damn fast, first game I just couldn't keep up with him. Pace is definetely his main attribute. I played 6 games with him (4 on squad battles at legendary level and 2 online single matches). He scored 12 goals and had 4 assists during these games.
What I like about him is that he is lethal with both feet, so you don't really have to pay attention to shoot the ball with his main foot, as you do with Salah.
I am definetely satisfied with this player and he will have for sure a spot in my team from now on.
it's only wednesday when I write this review, but i can preview from not the upcoming rage quits in the weelend league.
He is very fun to play with
Lethal with both feet
sometimes he fails to score inside the box, but it's ok. you just can have a striker that scores every single shot.
Marcus Rashford is 100% the best player I have bought on FIFA 18. He was only 105,000 coins which makes it even better. His normal card is good but this 84 IF takes it to another level. When he picks up the ball he can beat any player with his pace then his ball control means that, when dribbling, the ball sticks to his feet. He only has 70 long shots but I've scored many screamers with him. His exceptional finishing means that he scores pretty much every time he shoots. BUY HIM NOW!!!
Maybe Passing but not an issue
I've used Rashford 79 card in other squad and this IF is a 100% better than his normal card. I played him at LST and at LCAM (4231) and he is very good at both positions, his high agility and 94 pace make him avoid all defenders with the ball close to his feet because of his boost of ball control. His finishing is not that great but still good.
- Pace combinde with agility
- His dribbling is close to Neymar's level
- 4* skills and 4* weak foot
- His passing is not that good
- Long shots are not great
- Low composure
As a Manchester United fan I got his base card (79 ST with Marksman chem) as soon as I could, payed around 30k at the time and he scored a 1800 goals for me so far, I use him in Squad Battles, Weekend League, he is almost always in my squad even now in this stage of fifa. When he scored two against Liverpool I knew that he is set for an inform so I sniped one for 90k.
For a first few games I used him as a super sub and he was not performing, then I started him on 7 chem as a LF and again he was not performing, I switched my formation so he could be on a full chem and once again he was not performing I just can't figure it out, what is so different with this card, even on 7 chem all of his stats are way better when I compare it to his regular card but he feels so weak, and somehow shooting inside the box is dreadful. The only pros are pace, agility and his shooting outside the box.
I tried him with a few chem styles (Hawk, Sniper, Marksman), and non seems to work for me.
I guess it's just me, maybe I expect too much from this card i don't know.
If you ask me as a MAN UTD fan get Martial 83 put a Hunter chem on him and he becomes a beast, he is much cheaper and a way better card.
I must say that I had the same problem with SIF Wilson 84, so I switched back to his IF 81 card and he performs better.
Shooting outside the box
4* weak foot, 4* skills
Shooting inside the box
Moving without the ball
