This card is AMAZING!. Before this card was introduced i was switching between POTM Zaha and TOTS Salah. But i can honestly say that his finishing is one of a kind. Every time he is through on goal he scores. His dribbling is insane and he beats most defenders t a header.
Wow what can I say, this card is absolutely phenomenal. Having struggled to find a striker that is an out and out finisher i was switching between strikers and using wingers up top and converting cams to play there, this card is exactly what i had been searching for. To keep it short and sweet he is an animal an absolute beast, he only needs half a chance and he'll bury it, scoring goal after goal. i use him up top with international hero Rooney who ive also reviewed and they are the perfect pairing, they have scored me numerous goals and assisted numerous goals as well.
Pace is electric and will get you past any defender
Finishing, give this guy half a chance and he will bury it, be it a volley, a low driven, a header, a power drive, a bicycle this man will score it by far the best natural finisher ive used so far.
Strength, obviously being the size he is Defoe isn't exactly the strongest but if you know when to play him through and when to give him the ball you shouldn't find an issue with strength because his pace makes up for that.
Let me begin with this was the first 90+ rated card i got on xbox, i saw his reviews and i was a bit worried i based my coins bc they were very tight last week as i had to start fresh transitioning from ps4. this wasn't the case at all. he was pink rashfords partner in crime if one of them was double teamed id lay it off to the other and have so much fun. this cards biggest pro has to be his shooting. he will slot everything away and can really hit it from miles out. the best way to describe this card would be a inform messi with 3 star skills which is his biggest bummer other than his strength.
speed is fast but at this point every forward has 90+ pace
can definitely win headers
finishing is insane
feels like 5 star weak foot
always, always got an assist
3 star skills is a killer i use skills to get me out of every bad position
quite surprised. i play in Divison 3 and the daily knockout tournament and honestly this is the most OP card i have tried in a long time, scores goals for fun, always in place, there when you need him, overall my kind of striker, many people would argue that his height is off putting and i thought the same thing at first but if you play him beside any tall ST or LF/RF it wont matter.
in my opinion quite similar ingame to:
just so you have some kind of idea of what he is like :).
Dribbling with the ball
Overall Defoe is a relatively fun card to use but is equally frustrating due to how much he misses the target. I had high expectations for the card as he has some amazing in-game stats, so I completed the duo SBC and got both Crouch and Defoe. I thought these two would make a formidable partnership, but I was very wrong. Defoe has good creative play, however, as he is fluid with the ball at his feet, so if you can fit him into a team with a clinical goalscorer then it might be worth giving him a try.
- Dribbling and overall fluidity on the ball
- Shooting (in general)
- Creative play
- No difference between strong and weak foot
- Not as weak as the card suggests, he can hold up the ball
- Consistency in front of goal, he misses far too often and in vital moments
- Small so doesn't win headers
- 3* skills is not a con for me but some players may find this as an issue
