IF Beloit is hands down the best striker you can get from the serie a for the price. He is super clinical and somehow manages to score the most insane shots from low driven long shots to insane bicycle kicks. He is no slouch dribbling with the ball either. The ball stays more or less stuck to his feet and you only feel the low dribbling stat when he does the rare bad first touch. he has really good pace and feels faster in game than his stats suggest. I recommend putting sniper on him to stop the bad first touches and to improve the agility and balance slightly. He doesn't fall over either and feels pretty agile and fast in game. Of course don't expect him to be a martens or insigne and run through the whole team that is not what he is for. I paired him in a 41212(2) with martens at striker with him and they were amazing. Don't do long passes with him he can't do it, short passes however as pretty accurate and not a problem.
- 5 * weak foot
- heading, jumping, strength
- first touch
- 3 * skills(not too much of a problem)
- Why you have not got him yet.
So I was never one to use the OG Belotti. I love making loads of different types of squads but mostly picking players that were unknown. When I decided to make a Calcio A squad alongside my Grigg squad I thought maybe I should give this IF a go. I can pleasantly say he is absolutely and he is so cheap for what he is. I have used POTM Kane, soares IF, Cavani SBC and this card is by far the most prolific. Saying that you need to bear in mind he is not a CF and simple passes are best but he will score all different types of goals and he will be in the right positions to score them. He is a very well rounded player
Shooting: in this sense, there is no question, he has an uncanny ability to put the ball in the back of the net and would be perfect for any Calcio A squad.
Pace/Physicality: he doesn't let go of the ball easily so once you have it you have it, that mixed with pace and the trait of "always getting in behind" means he becomes very hard to keep at bay
Dribbling: he is tight and clean on the ball, surrounded by four in the box is no problem as he has the reactions and ball control to deal with it.
Passing: he can't really pass, short passing is fine if you have maestro on him which is what I have. I am not the type to speed past an opponent so I like my strikers to have good passing
Free kicks: NO
Placement: whilst he is easy to find in a match, set pieces he is harder to pick out, he is not the tallest and whilst he has power heading, it is not the simplest to get to
Shooting: whilst his in and around the box shooting is superb, he doesn't really do it outside the 30-metre mark, course if you are leading the line with him then that should not be a problem
