Mauro Icardi - 88 - IF
2.5
Icardi - Not so impressive
By Crimxson, 12-10-2018

Ive just got Icardi from player picks. I was glad for it at the first sight, but Ive finished so dissappointed.

His stats does not look like an 88 rating card but I gave him a try.

He felt unconfortable at the first games and I was wondering why. After that I double checked his stats and work rates and the medium work rate on attacking may be a problem in my opinion as the player was always in bad positions and felt like a could do nothing with him. His dribling is not the best and his turns are not that quick.

The only good thing about him is shooting. If you have enough time to shoot then you will provide a good shot.

But his lack of dribgling and bad positioning will always get him in though positions.

Basically I was playing without a striker as he mostly get the ball somewhere between CM-CAM-ST. Looks like a little bit lazy as he does not get in front of the goal as fast as he should.

This is my opinion, I might be wrong. This is how I have felt it!

Perfect Striker

To give you a quick run down. This guy is the perfect striker in my opinion. With 91 finishing he has the most clinical shooting I've seen in this game. Scores them from all angles all day long, inside and outside the box. He's only 5ft 11 but don't be fooled, he wins the majority of headers with 94 jumping and with 91 heading I genuinely think across 30 games he only missed one header. Seriously can't stress his arial abil...

This card is broken

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.

A Solid Option for Two Striker Systems

Icardi can be a frustrating card to get used to, but when you find his strengths he turns into a really solid option. I first tried Icardi alone up top in a 4-2-3-1, with Mertens and 1st IF Insigne at the two CAM positions behind him. He was very frustrating to play with; his strength was poor, ball control sloppy, and his passes were just not strong enough to get through tight windows without being intercepted. After about...
