92 - Icon
Linkeker my man
By iTzFaiTz, 07-01-2019

Had the luck to pack him in a 100k pack during lightning round. My instant thought was to sell him, but since this is my first packed icon ever, wanted to try him for a bit first. Best thing I ever did. Played 10 division rivals and the results were amazing: 10 games, 22 goals and 3 assists. I play 4-1-2-1-2 with Jesus IF at CAM and Sturridge Flashback as the other striker. I play him with maestro chemistry style.


His 90 acceleration is very noticable, even in this fifa where pace isn't everything. You can give him a through pass and he will leave defenders in dust, especially in the first few meters.


ABSOLUTELY insane. With maestro slapped on him, he has 98 shot power and 96 long shots. Just shoot it from distance, won't even have to finesse it neither do you need to time it. 1v1 on the keeper is no problem for him. With 95 finishing he puts it away for you


Not the best, but not the worst either. As a striker with get in behind instructions. I don't really pass with him a lot. Short passing with maestro is 93 and very noticable. Can easily give a nice pass inside the box


With 88 agility, 94 ball control and 95 dribbling this man is like..... I don't know man.... His dribbling is just insane, nuff said...


I don't defend with my striker... Though his 88 heading accuracy makes providing him with some nice crosses a very nice thing to do


85 stamina is very nice. Only thing is that vs Van Dijk etc. he might get bounced away easily with his 79 strength

The best ST option for < 1.25 Mil coins

I've been trying a number of different Icon ST options for the past month (93 Van Basten, 92 Nistelrooy, 91 Trezeguet, 91 Kluivert, 91 Shevchenko, etc.) for review purposes, and the prime Lineker was definitely the most enjoyable and best lone ST option for a budget of 850,000 to 1.25 million coins in my opinion.*I plan on writing reviews for the rest of the aforementioned icon STs within a week or so.His shoo...

A++ End-game Striker option

I was a bit skeptical about this card simply due to the fact that I almost never run into a team with him during the weekend league.Well... this card has been probably one of the best icon strikers I've used so far. It has basically almost everything you want in your striker - excellent pace, shooting, offensive positioning, ball control & stamina. I strongly feel that my team's offensive productivity has been t...

frustrating yet brilliant

lineker was my first ever icon, looking at stats he looked to be the best option for me after selling messi for being too lazy. He started off like a house on fire, scoring goals for fun, with hunter his pace is insane and with the tries to beat defensive line trait he makes insane runs in behind to make easy 1 on 1 chances. However, his shooting is so rendom, his shots are usually like cannons, finding the corner and deve...
