Wooowww boy woowwww. This card I amazing. I was always complaining about that people won over because of that they had Cr7 and all the big players. But Giovinco told me that enough was enough. I bought him for 170k and ooo boy is it worth it. Pace, shooting and dribbling. Best Italian striker on the game for sure. I am using him along side 90Zlatan and Giovinco doesn’t give any one around him a chance to score because of that he can do all the work self.
i recommend this card very much. Game changing striker. Has many better stats then 90 R9 and Henry and also 91 Pele. Just buy him, he is a game changing striker.
reminds me of George best from FIFA 17.
Long shoots-All you need to do is to press the shooting button, not anything more.
He is not the strongest, but with amazing agility and balance he can make Ramos and other good defenders look like nothing.
defending, but does it matter?
Heading & jumping. But he has scored 1 header for me so it doesn’t matter.
League- MLS has some decent players, but hmm not many.
I somehow managed to pack this guy in the guaranteed community tots sbc. I tried him out and OH MY GOD. the first thing he did was dribble past the whole opponents team (he had if boateng and tots sule) and shoot from like 30 metres away from the goal and score in the top right corner. This guys agility, balance, composure and dribbling stats are the perfect combination. He turns and moves like if insigne, shoots like tony ronaldo and is so cheap that it would be a crime not to buy him. He is no slouch on the passing department either. He has assisted and started insane moves and goals and rarely misplaces a pass unless he is pressed. However, yes he is weak, 49 strength is nothing to brag about however his agility, balance, composure and aggression keep him away from defenders and fighting for the ball always. Don't worry about stamina this guy can run non stop for days. Finally, don't get into areal battles or corners with him he is genuinely useless at them and will wither be pushed away or miss if he manages to get the header.
BTW HE IS A 97 RATED CAM WITH MEASTRO. Also just think of it this way, imagine messi, ronaldo and de bruyne had some weirdo 3 parent baby. this is how he feels like, pace of ronaldo, shooting of ronaldo, dribbling of messi and passing of de bruyne. You cannot go wrong with this card as long as you play him in an attacking position.
- long shots and shot power
- 4* 4* combo
- aggression and stamina.
- strength (easily overlooked)
- league (can link him with italian players in calcio a such as immobile)
- price??? (170k is expensive but for this kind of player its a bargain)
- Areal ability.
- height (sort of an advantage as it makes him easier to manoeuvre around defenders).
I packed him in a guaranteed community team of the season pack. I become quite angry I thought it was Chiellini. But I decided to test him out. When I tested him I realized that he is an absolute god I have a decent hybrid with inform Bailey, tots Otamendi, Doucore tots when the game begins I substitute vardy and bring on giovinco and use him as the central CAM in 4231. He has very good stamina and all dribling stats and his long shots is unbelievable.
4 star skills and weak foot
This his card has astounded me. As someone who loves to dribble and spin a lot, this card is great. He is very quick and is able to shimmy around defenders easily. I managed to get just about a 2:1 goal to game ratio with him, and all of those goals have been through the weekend league or recent DKT. He is very weak, and thus will not suit al play styles. This is his greatest weakness, because unless he is clear through on goal he will get bodied off. Despite this, he would make a great CAM for nearly everyone. His passing is crisp and accurate and his shots are incredible. I packed him from the community garunteed pack and have loved him since.
- Agility and dribbling
- Nationality, he's easy to link with other italian players and icons
- Aerial ability
- Pace to an extent. He's not rapid, and lacks that genuine pace. Despite this, if you throw on a hunter chem style he'll still feel very quick
- League, there are a few good players like alessandrini or the MLS SBC cards to link, but that's about it
Another year of a Giovinco TOTS, another huge letdown. Every year I buy this card hoping he will be good, and he just isn't. He gets absolutely MURDERED by anyone attempting to get him off the ball. He even got knocked over by Raheem Sterling! his pace feels not a point above 85, his dribbling doesnt help because he gets demolished by anyone in reach, and his passing feels like I'm passing with Eric Bailly. I have never seen a card's stats underperform so greatly. Granted, I play in division 2 but this is still a horrific card, and not nearly worth over 100k. Thankfully I only paid 85 to get him. His shooting I never even got to experience because when he gets the ball in the box he's already lost it by the time I can shoot. The only goals he scored were rebounds. His free kicks and corners were good though. I played him at striker and CAM in 4-1-2-1-2 (2), CAM and LAM in 4-2-3-1 and LAM in 4-2-2-2 and he was awful at ever position. Overall, hugely disappointed with Gio once again.
- did I mention strength?
