When it comes to making a starter team I highly recommend you pick up Kevin Gameiro for his low selling price of less then 3k at all times.
First of all Gameiro has very good stats for an 83 rated player. 86 Finishing, 86 Positioning and 85 Composure along with a nice 84 shot power.
These shooting stats are brilliant for any striker let alone one who's so cheap. 87 pace also makes him a fast enough striker to out run many centre backs.
Kevin Gameiro however has low strength and lowish balance making him easily pushed off the ball. I also felt like is ball control was a bit weak sometimes but overall not to bad.
I was searching for a striker for my main squad and I found this guy and I have to say he is unreal. I used him up top with Muriel and Ben Yedder at CAM in a 4312 formation. He scored 18 goals in 7 games and got 5 assists in Division 7. I always watch the ratings after the match and he was involved in every goal in those 7 matches. His pace is unreal, I also put a HAWK on to boost this pace a little bit and the shooting. The standout stats with the HAWK Chemistry Style are 98 Acceleration, 96 Positioning and 91 Finishing.
Runs in Behind the Defense
Kevin Gameiro is a very good French striker and a good alternative to Mbappe or Griezmann, Gameiro's pace and finishing is very good, Gameiro's low driven shots are very effective whilst his finesse shots are not as effective, he is very cheap and 100% worth his price, his dribbling is not bad for a striker, although his ball control is below average. Gameiro has a high composure stat that is very effective in 1v1 situations.
- Ball Control
- Tends to disappear in some games.
He is so fast, can shot from distance and is a great finisher, very good passing and dribbling. It is obvious his phyicality is not the best, as well as his heading accuracy, although he has scored some goals like this.
- Very good agility + very good pace= feels so fast
- Excellent finisher and correct long shots
- Good dribbling and passing, makes a lot of assists
- Heading accuracy not the best, but it is obvious due to his height
When I bought him he felt amazing, but I felt like something was missing. So I put a hunter on him, this does so he has 97 pace and 93 shooting. I have had troble in this game with finishing, and I think that is because of the composure stat. But he has 85 composure, and I score like 90% of my 1v1 chances now. I would 100% recommend him, he's under 3k and with a hunter chem style he feels like a 88 player.
