So I was struggling with FIFA 19, couldn't find a decent striker who worked for me and the new way I had to play due to the new game. I tried Icardi, Immobile, Higuain, Lacazette, Kane, with only Kane providing goals for me on a regular basis. But with Kane feeling a bit to slow, heavy, clumsy, I decided to try this beast out. He changed everything, I went from a 1-1 winning/losing game all the time, to winning the majority of my games, thanks to this guy. I use a sniper chem to optimize his shots, and to compensate for his kind of heavy dribbling. His pace is good enough without chem. I play him as a lone striker in 4231 with Firmino, Son and Lucas behind him, perfect quadrupel. He has scored 19 goals and has 9 assists in his first 20 games, and I don't see myself changing this guy for a long time.
The main thing about this card is his shooting. My god, that left foot is like the barrel of a WW2 tank, a monstrosity. A regular shot with that foot WILL end up in the back of the net, 9/10 times, no matter the angle. He is also really good at finesse shots. You can really feel the power when you shoot, unstoppable.
Then we have his physics. What more needs to be said than that he isn't called Hulk for no reason, damn this guy is strong. He pushes through defenders, takes back the ball and even wins headers (which is his biggest con though) thanks to his massive body.
His passing and dribbling is fine, nothing extraordinary but above average for a striker I would say.
If you worry about the price, HE IS WORTH IT, so if you have the coins, go for it.
His only cons are his heading ability, even though he has scored some headers he loses most of the duels due to his height and bad jumping. Then there is his 3* weak foot, which only feels like 3* when you try to finesse, when you go for the boom, it doesn't matter. Of course the left foot is the best in the game so far, but the right works just fine!
- Shooting - nothing can stop that left foot.
- Physics - beast, tank, giant, sasquatch, call him whatever, it is true.
- Winning back the ball, pushes away defenders
- 4* skills
- Heading, loses most duels, but has scored a few.
- 3* WF, but only when trying finesse shots.
