I was initially very disappointed in myself for having been drawn into a bidding war over this card (which i had been eyeing for a long time) and ended up paying 121k for it. Knowing that at this stage of fifa coins matter alot, i contemplated selling him for the same price. I told myself that I would do it after i had tried him. And boy am i glad that i did. I slapped a hunter on him and the rest they say is history.
To put things into context, he replaced Mertens partnering Dybala. Now Mertens is a rapid goal scoring machine in his own right. Anyone playing Mertens would know that he finds himself one on one with the keeper alot. What is a let down though is his finishing. He can score 10/10 on one day but fail to convert any the next. I needed someone consistent who would put away the chances. This is where Icardi comes in (make no mistakes about it, I tried his normal gold card and found him reliable but against fast defenders, he was rendered useless). This card though is on another level altogether. What i love most about this card is his sense of positioning and his FINISHING. He is exactly where you need him to be. He scores all sorts of goals: near post, far post , headers, goals from acute angles (which i thought would be entirely impossible to score from). This man is a goal scoring machine.
Obviously his price for me!!
Tends to misplace simple passes at times.
There is nothing more that i can think off. It's the best 121k ive spent so far on fifa 19.
What remains a mystery though is why he is now extinct in the market
