Player Review

Martínez - 86 - Award Winner
Insane Josef Martinez (MLS)
By cyrilstyle, 19-12-2018

Let me start this review with the feel I've had for the last 3 Fifas, that the SBC cards are a little bit 'Broken' or 'special' in a good way. Weird things happens around them and they often win the advantage. It took not too long to win the challenge and I was to resell all my MLS card for a great price after.

I started my first game with him and to try him out, he entered next Werner 87 (WL player pick) at the 10th minutes. The defense was Varane / Ramos, so a perfect hard wall to try breaking through. And he did! He actually put Ramos down (by the neck) in the surface, ending up with a great upper 90 on Courtois. I was surprised the ref didnt called foul but WOW! what a first goal.

He's strong and stays up, literally smashing into other players and keeping the ball in his foot.

His pace is great, but compared to a Mbappe or Coman, he takes him a little time to start but once his launch, he's very hard to stop. I put him on Hawk and im very happy with this chem.

His shots are so powerful that I have to be careful to not press the shot button too hard or it's a bar or over. His finesse shot is also very good.

I see him as an amazing super SUB early in the game (if you dont have better cards) or later to have him be a game changer!

I am afraid we will see him a lot in all the upcoming Weekend Leagues... But a little advice - GET HIM before he's gone :)

+ Pace (takes a while to launch)

+ Shot power

+ Strong header

+ Balance! (he doesn't fall)

Passing (a bit weak)

Hard to link as starter

OMG what a card!

I completed the challange in the weekly objectives for this card quite without too big problems... I thougt the stats were decent so I wanted to use him as a SuperSub. In the first game I subbed him in at the beginning at ST and noticed, that he´s such a brilliant striker! He has lightning pace, very agile dribbling and a perfect shot. The 4*/4* combo also helps the card to be even better than the POTM Aubameyang. Ingame h...

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 ML...

Good Super Sub

So I had used a lot of Josef's cards throughout this years FIFA. From his based gold card, to the MVP card, and now when this card came out I wanted to try him again, and here's what I took from using him. Considering you only have a few days to do this SBC is why I'm writing this review with only such a few games played.PACEOne of the best assets on this card is his pace. For being...
