I was doubting to make him because of the 3 star combo. However i decided to complete the sbc. First match: what the hell did i just do. Second match: what the hell did i just do. Third match: same. i was sad. really sad. what can i do to improve this shitty player?? Hunter chemistry maybe? guess what.... CHICHARRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOO hat trick in hist 4th game. chemistry + get in behind + aggressive interceptions = unstoppable. that 99 acceleration, 92 sprint speed, 98 positioning, 96 finishing,91 shot power and 89 composure made him a nightmare for rivals inside the area
This card has caused some real controversy recently. Everyone in the comments is at such a split decision on whether to the sbc or not. I took a gamble and did it think I have nothing to loose. This man has completely changed the game for me. I was close to giving up on FIFA this year because of the struggles of finding a striker that works for me. He is just an irritant to play against and I would absolutely hate to play against him. He scores so often for me and it's really helped me out with Div rivals and FUT Champs. His finishing is superb as is his positioning because he's always in the right place.
I'll keep this short and sweet but to settle the debate for this card, in my opinion it was absolutely worth it , i would fully recommend this card to anyone even if you only used him as a super sub. He may not work for others but for me he's been sensational and truly saved my interest in FIFA? this year.
Finishing - as i have previously stated, is fantastic.
Positioning - always in the right place
Heading - his jumping and heading are ridiculous
Dribbling - is pretty good, gets him into space to get a shot off
Pace - this is also good, but it doesn't matter too much in this FIFA
COMPOSURE - this kid doesn't have the strength but if he starts getting closed down just have shot! his composure is solid so he doesn't mess his shots up
3* weak foot - it's not all know it's not great, it is what it is just get him on his right foot
3* skills - i personally don't care that much about skills on a striker but others might see this as a down side to his game
Stamina - his stamina "stat" isn't great I must admit, however, for me he's fine as he plays the full 90 with no issues what so ever
Strength - he could do with spending some time in the gym, he's small and weak but just don't use him as a target man and you're fine.
I don't write many reviews on this platform, and I'm definitely not the best FIFA player out there, but for some players i think it's important to write one from my own experience. As the title says, think about this when you are planning to do this... It will cost you around 120k I believe, for that money, you have Kane, Lewandowski, Cavani, Almost Lukaku... But when i saw this card i wanted to do it right away. I didn't even look at his stats but i needed him. In the EPL, there are not many strikers like this... I play in a 41212(2) and i like my strikers to be quick, agile, and deadly in front of the goal. I play him together with Lucas potm and i must say, the pair is deadly. They make up for each other, Lucas' passing makes up for Chicha's "bad" passing, and Chicha makes up for Lucas' "bad" finishing. Don't expect chicha to be this world class player, his passing isn't ideal imo, his pace is good but imo i don't notice it as much as with Lucas. But his finishing is deadly, almost every attempt goes in, left foot right foot doesn't matter, his 3* wf is not noticeable in game, at all, he'll bang in goals with his left foot as well. But the most important thing are his finesses, best finesse player i've used so far this FIFA. When he's through on goal, don't be scared, he'll finish it. So my conclusion is, if you don't like to play with target players like Kane, Lukaku, Lewandowski and you want a quick striker to pair up with another quick striker or a target man, this is your guy. Like i said, don't rely on him to be the playmaker and to start the action, because that's not what he does. It took me 11 games to get his first assist, in a 41212(2) formation, that's quite bad... but in 11 games, he scored 24 goals so he makes up for his assists. But when you're used to him and you know how to use him, he's an absolute GOD. I watched Marshall89HD's review about this guy and changed the sniper chemstyle for the Deadeye chemstyle, to improve his finishing and shooting. The stamina isn't a real problem imo, because i put him on "stay forward" so he doesn't make much useless runs for me. I also play like "tiki - taka" football with a lot of short passes and one-two's and when the time is right, he will get in behind. Again, his passing is 70, not the best. The stats that convinced me the most were his finishing, composure, positioning and reactions, remarquable and very good for a striker like him, but now on to the more detailed reviews per stat!
Pace: His pace is good obviously, but not very noticeable in game. I think it's just because how this FIFA works. Pace isn't a key stat anymore, if you have 80-85 or 85-90, there isn't much difference i think. I do think that "balance" and "reactions" influence the pace, and for this card that isn't a problem. I'm not saying he's slow, he'll get past that last defender without any doubt, but it's not that he's a rocket that you can't catch up with
Shooting: SPECTACULAR, nothing else to say about this stat. He'll score everything, Rebounds, long shots, tap ins, headers, bycicle kicks, but the most important for this FIFA , finesse shots. He scores every finesse shot. I think from the 24 goals i've made with him, there were 14 finesse shots. 8 of them touched the inside of the post before going in, so he is sooooo accurate.
Passing: You can't expect from this card that he's god tier and is super accurate in everything, his worst stat is his passing. it's still 70, with 71 short passing I think, but when he's under pressure, it's noticeable that his passes aren't accurate. Like i said above (if you read the whole thing haha) he's the end station for me, if i dribbled past the defenders with potm lucas or IF Willian as a cam, than i can rely on chicha to give him the ball and finish it, but i won't let chicha set up the action and let him finish it himself.
Dribbling: Very doubtfull stat imo... his agility, reactions and composure are very important here. due to the fact that he has "only" 3star skill moves (for me personally) it's hard to get past a defender, all my other midfielders except futswap guilavogui have got 4+ stars skills. And i use "La Croqueta" a lot this year, so that's a negative point... He will get past defenders for sure with his agility, but not as much as my Willian, Lucas or pogba...
Defending: not relevant imo, his heading accuracy is very high imo, but i don't score headers at all, so it won't be correct to use this as a "pro"
physical: Pretty bad, no strength, no agression, stamina is allright but not amazing... it's not bad, he can play 90 minutes for sure, maybe even the first half of extra time, but a lot will depend on the player instructions. if you have get in behind, and help defending yeah, he'll be tired after 70 minutes for sure. but when you put him on stay forward and stay central, he'll be able to play until minute 105 i think...
The cons are for me the 3* skills, the 3* wf isn't a problem for me YET, i dindn't notice yet that he missed quite a lot with his left foot, i was in fact suprised that he banged in so many goals with left, from quite a long distance. Another con is his passing for sure, that's the biggest key "con" imo... i like to play fast build up with tiki taka and one two's, and Chicha is able to do that, but sometimes just not very accurate. In the beginning it's frustrating for sure, but when you are used to him and to play with him, you learn how to use him and he'll become one of the deadliest strikers you've used so far.
