As it says in the title, Neymar is without a doubt the best player in Fifa for me and has been ever since Fifa 15. His record for me speaks for itself and if you don't believe me, my gamer tag is ViP x STaRZz (excuse the name) and you can look for yourself. If my team aren't playing as well, Neyamr will always score at least one goal for me even if I get smashed. His play style suits me perfectly as I am a skiller and with Neymar, you can pretty much get past anyone because of his agility and balance. His stamina is only 78 and you'd think that's not great for a striker but he doesn't fell like that for me, it feels like over 90.
His pace is fantastic, he leaves everyone behind with his 94 acceleration and 90 sprint speed and with the speedster specialty, he is just perfect.
His shooting is perfect and with his 5* week foot, he can score from anywhere.
His dribbling is insane, he runs between defenders like they're not there and you don't even need the 5* skills at times.
His passing is great, he picks quality balls out of nowhere, at times it can be a bit lacking but that's to be expected but overall he is better than his card and in game stats indicate.
Defending obviously isn't his strong point even though he has made quite a few tackles for me.
Physicality isn't really something I notice with Neymar, yes he gets strengthed of the ball sometimes and that's not that often either. Everything else about his physicality stats aren't great but like I said his stamina is a lie.
To be honest i was very skeptical before I picked him up. I had just sold Bale, a player I loved using. I was afraid that Neymar would be to weak and get bullied off the ball all the time. That was just not the case, Neymar's dribbling and pace made him untouchable, he wasn't in strength duels often, he avoided them. He doesn't miss shots at all either.
Neymar is great but not perfect. I ussed him in a 4231 in the cam position and he was a very good creator but lacked a bit in some aspects. His dribbling is near perfect but sometimes he will have bad touches and because of that you can lose a goal opportunity or just lose the ball in a dumb way but that happens very rarely. He is very quick turning and is very satisfying to dribble with but his reactions at 88 sometimes felt on the low 80s. His shooting is very good when he is well positioned, if he is in a difficult chance of scoring he will miss more than he scores. His shot power doesn't feel great in game but his finesses on the edge of the box are amazing or just power shots on the edge of the box are awesome too. I used him behind the SBC Kaka and he was very good alongside him. They sinergized very well together and usally tey got me most of my goals in every game. His passing is ok-ish. Not the best but gets the job done, he will miss some pass here and there but he'll be veety precise most of the time. His physical is bad as expected but he has his dribbling to make up for the lack of strength. Finally his stamina is not the best but he can manage to finish the gaames eithout getting subbed off. Around the 70th minute you'll see him in a yellowish stamina bar and he will probably not be able to run so much in a counter-attack before running like out of breath but other than that even late in the game he can score and dribble like it was the beginning of the game.
Shooting (finesses, low drivens, power shots, everything)
92 Neymar Jr is a great player, don't get me wrong, but I'll explain the title of my review in the points.
There's nothing wrong about his pace. Very fast and that helps him get through the defenders.
His shots are incredible. They feel much better than 84 rated. His finishing is perfect, positioning as well. His long shots are low rated but they are very good! I don't find anything wrong about his shots. Also, 5 star weak foot is great!
His passes are decent. He's good at assisting. Not much to say. Good free kicks as well.
Ideal! Stunning! Also a great combination with 5 star skills! Amazing ball control.
Do I really have to talk about a wingers defence? Yeah, don't think so. It's not important.
This is, I think, Neymar's biggest problem. This is the reason why I sold him and found him a bit disappointing. He is SOOOOOO weak. Anyone can push him over. Also his STAMINA is awful. I hate it. I mean, while his speed is one of his best attributes, he does sprint a lot, obviously, and his stamina runs out very fast. So, yeah. For me this is a big minus. Maybe not for others, but for me it's disappointing.
- Pace (Speed demon!)
- Long shots
- Free kicks
- 5 star skills / 5 star weak foot
- Low stamina
- Very weak
He has been the absolute best striker I have used in the game so far. I was very hesitant when buying him for 500k on PS4 but he has been the sole reason I have gotten elite 3 in the weekend league for my first time. He can pass, his positioning is absolutely amazing (always there for the rebound, and makes amazing runs), his pace is unreal, (once he gets the ball or does one-two's he cannot be caught), his shot is amazing, (it seems like where ever he shoots from he scores---long shots, finesses, low drives, you name it), his dribbling is unreal and whenever you are using L1 or just dribbling with him it is like the ball is stuck to his foot. The only thing that is his weakness, is his physical/strength but I can live with that with everything else he does right. There was something unusual I realized about him though... When he is shielding the ball he seems to keep everyone away from the ball even though his strength/physical is not as good. It seems like his dribbling/ball control is so high that he keeps the ball close to his foot so defenders can't take it away.
I start out in a 4-3-3 (3) and switch him to left striker in a 4-3-1-2 and he does wonders there. He links well with Mbappe and they are the best duo up top. When I am running along the left side with Alex Sandro, Neymar is always making the perfect run up top left towards the flag so I can do an easy cut back goal. His positioning is unreal.
Overall Best Striker I've used. Used all in Weekend League!
Love you Neymar and thank you for saving me in the Weekend League.
Pace! Pace! Pace! Unbelievable pace with and without the ball.
Dribbling Outstanding! The ball is absolutely glued to his feet.
Passing is great and gives the best through balls to Mbappe.
SHOT! He seems like he makes everything he lets go with his foot. 5 Star weak foot makes him a machine and able to score from anywhere with any foot.
Physical/Strength: Not the strongest but I can live with that for he is great at shielding the ball for his dribbling is so good.
Stamina: Sometimes gets tired towards the end but he still makes shots while tired.
