    Pelé - 95 - Icon
    By vanRaco, 27-02-2019

    Where to begin with this guy, waw.. Ok, so I was absurdly lucky this year with my pack rewards, I managed to pack almost everybody: Prime Inzaghi early on, Courtois early on (twice), UCL Bale, De Bruyne, and finally, a couple of weeks ago - the Big Man himself: Cristiano Ronaldo. Having played with CR7 in drafts a lot, I can say that Prime Raul is pretty much on par if not better than him and i decided to sell him and get 95 Pele with the extra cash I had in the club. Oh boy, does this guy deliver! There is absolutely nothing he cannot do: he shoots from inside, outside the box, WF feels 5*, exterior of his strong foot, finesse, lobs, low driven, low power shots pass the keeper, even headers when he isn't marked by VVD or some giant. Truly a goal-scoring machine.

    Another great feature is his dribbling if you get your finger of the sprint button and just use your left stick to maneuver he will not lose the ball. If you are a skiller, then this is the next level: he is so smooth and fluid it's unreal.

    I played him in quite a few formations: single striker, up top paired with Prime Raul, and CF. He overperformers in all of them scoring a minimum of 2 goals per match from any of them and being the most influential player I have ever played with in my life. One other feature I would like to point out is the pure panic effect it has on the opponent. When people see him they just try and come at him with all they got, teammate contain and another CB, the CDM, the keeper, you name it. This opens up a lot of space for your other players and is the extra bonus feature of this card.

    This is by far the most fun I have had with FIFA in my life.

    PS: The fealing you get from the Martin and Allan as they scramble to make sense of what happened gooing from "A courageous effort" to "What a strike from Pele, THE KING OF FOOTBALL" is blood pumping in its own right.

    This Pelé is on ANOTHER level, BY FAR the best striker I've tried.He just makes scoring effortless, always finding the space to get that finesse shot away and in the back of the net, doesn't matter what foot (best 4* I've ever seen) or how far away from goal.This card is so OP I'll use it until I can buy his prime. 91 Pelé was just not good enough, he didn't feel amazing and his lack of curve killed t...

    Sorry for my bad English.I was so lucky to pack him(Icon upgrade), and he is just one of the best players I have ever used. Pele has it all, no doubt about that. I personally think he is best as ST, and i think he fits perfect together with CR7. He is a player that makes it a lot more fun to play Fifa 19, and he has already played 63 games after 1 week. Pace: He is very fast, and he has no problem ...
