Player Review

Rui Manuel César Costa - 90 - Icon
5.0
Controls the Midfield

I honestly was hesitant to do his SBC. I saw his card and thought it was decent, but I didn't exactly like his card on World Cup Mode last FIFA. I watched a few reviews on him then I decided to do his SBC. It was totally worth it. I have played 15 games with him using a Sniper chem style and in those games he has scored 18 goals and 6 assists. For me he controls the whole attack and the tempo of the game. I really have enjoyed him in there games and do not regret doing the SBC. If there was a player it could compare him to it would be Dybala because of the way the play, but Costa is stronger and has slightly lower dribbling.

  1. Pace - can beat defenders with ease
  2. Passing - even thought he doesn't have many assists for me he is the one creating the chances
  3. Physical - he has decent stamina and good strength so he is able to shrug off defenders
  4. Shooting - I used a sniper chem style and it really improved his shooting because his finishing went up to 90. His long shots are also deadly
  1. Agility and balance - I only played one game without a chem style on him and you could tell that is movement was odd, so I added the sniper chem style and he felt much more fluid while dribbling

The Maestro

If you are looking for a great CAM this is your man. His passing and set pieces are unbelievable, his ball control is amazing and the ability to create chances is fantastic. I tried this card with sniper and deadeye due to his low base finishing. Both looked and felt good in game but deadeye was a bit better for me. He is always in the right position, his attacking runs are really good and his stamina lasts for 90+ mins. He...

Well, this was the second time I got Rui Costa via SBC, and if I get the chance I will do it again in Fifa 20, just the perfect CAM.Although you have to spend a few hundred coins and maybe some untradable players in order to complete the SBC, Rui Costa is absolutely worth it to me: Brilliant stamina (believe me, the way I play, I really need a CAM that doesn't go "red" within the 90 minutes);

Solid Icon

So after playing with Rui Costa in my squad for over fifty games, i guess its time to give my opinion about this card. I decided to do SBC and get my first icon of 19, so he is obviously my best CAM i used so far and i had some solid players such as KDB and Eriksen before. So let's start with shooting cause it looks like biggest concern for this card and in some way it is, it's nowhere bad it's just most l...
