Mauro Icardi - 87 - Normal
5.0
Perfect Striker
By GRAVES1425, 14-10-2018

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 ability enough. He was better in the air than IF Mandzukic. Last thing. I've used a lot of players this year with great finishing but can't for the life of me get them into a scoring position. Not the case with Icardi. IG his dribbling feels great and it's easy to cut through defenders. Also his first touch is great so when you send a long ball to him or a cross he has perfect control. I think positioning is the most underrated stat in this game. Icardi has 92, which means he's always in the right place at the right time.

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...

Icardi review

He scores every header he gets and on 1vs1 he is deadly, with the engine chem he is fast and has good dribbling and has enough passing to get involved in build up playes I scored 55 in 23 games with him and If you know how to use him he is good in game as a target man and a good finisher.
