Player Review

Riyad Mahrez - 87 - SIF
Much more than A typical Skiller
By BARIEX, 21-11-2018

With his recent IF he became a very strong player (in both ways) and had a huge Physical upgrade that made his Stamina go from average into high with just one upgrade, the strenght has also improved a lot even though it seems not enough, it helps a lot when paired with such composure and balance, also his shooting now can be used to score Finesse shots using his improved finishing and very high curve, but this doesn't mean he is useless when it comes to shot power, he had also improved in passing especially short passes which makes him an even better playmaker, but nothing seems different with the long passes, the usual +1 in PACE was worth because he seems faster somehow and the 90 acceleration is a good match with his incredible dribbling, he is still as good with crossing, free kicks and penalties

One of the best PL players, prefect for skillers (5* skills and 4*WF), can be played as: RM, LM, RW, LW, ST, RF, CF, LF and CAM

My favourite player so far in fifa 19, so good that I had to write a review for him. Once you get how to use him and abuse some skills, he's up there with some of the best non-icons in the game. He's able to shoot from anywhere, especially with timed finesse shots as he has the finesse shot trait. He seems to be much faster than his stats say, probably due to his 95 agility and 90 acceleration making turning with him rapid....

One of the best

I'd used the base Mahrez card earlier in the game and he was fun but flawed when I used him. He'd be a good skiller but there'd be no end product (unlike Sane and Son who get into space and finish a move off) and his stamina would make him no use by 70 mins. But then I got this IF on the cheap and gave him a go - and he is up there as one of the best players on the game. The space this card creates when he...
