This guy is a madman. Been wanting to use his regular card since FIFA came out since I followed the MLS a bit, but the links at the time (Tito Villalba) were expensive, and forewent using him. Decided to use the normal card during the weekly objective since I finally had the chance, and even then he was amazing slipping in.
MY MY MY once I got this MVP card, I’ve been so elated. I purposely made an MLS hybrid a week ago anticipating a special card, and slipped him right in—pairing him with Miggy Almiron and SIF Diego Valeri (another god).
He’s been described as one of the best pure scorers the MLS has been seen, and that’s just what this card will do. Even elite defenders like Varane and Ferdi can’t contain this beast if you know how to play him in. If you’re more of a dribbler, then he’s got you covered too with his insane 99 agility and balance. I would liken him to a South American IF Ben Yedder, but feels more fun to use just because you know he’s from the MLS.
Don’t expect to be able to playmake with him though, his passing is laughable, at best, but that’s not what he’s made for. Slap a finisher or marksman to boost his jumping and strength just a bit, and give him a long shot that’s well worth getting people triggered with yellow timed finishes that soar into the net.
I love what EA did to this card—make you feel like you’re playing the way he does in the MLS, except against non-silver defenders
