Best Striker in Fifa 19
By tricker177, 23-10-2018

This card is insane, plain and simple. I have never scored so easily like I have done when I've used this card. Crespo has this sort of "how did that go in?" trait about him. There were so many times where I was down in a game or tied late and I would just say screw it and hit a finesse. Over half of the time these crazy shots would just go in and the opponent and myself would be left saying.. How did that go in? Hernan is my striker this year, better than 91 cruyff for me who I used this most recent Weekend League and can write a review on him too if anyone is interested. Overall however, it would depend on how many coins you have based on whether I believe you should go pick this card up. If you have enough for Crespo and any bit over 400k for the rest of the squad I would say pick him up.

Pace - He feels really quick for a big man and with the hawk I put on him he had 92 Acceleration and 91 Sprint Speed.


Shooting - Simply put, AMAZING.


Strength - He bodies people off the ball like it is his job.


Heading - With 95 Jumping and 89 Heading Accuracy this man is an Ariel Menace.

I used the prime (90) version of Crespo in Fifa 18 and i decided to use him again this year. As i couldn't afford him, i have gone for his 87 rated card and i find him to be absolutely fantastic. I played him during the WL in 28 games and he scored 31 times (Rank: Gold 2). He has amazing positioning, finishing and really good headers. Finesse shots this year are op and with the finesse shot trait this guy can score some unbelievable goals outside the box. If you can afford him or if you are lucky enough to pack him put him in your team and enjoy. The only negative about him is his passing. with just 69 rating for short passing and 59 for long passing you can imagine that he is not a natural passer and most of his passes are crappy.

He's just amazing playing as a striker, he can score in every way, finesses, power shots, chips. He's quite fast and can get behind defenders consistently. Great header as well, I had prime Vieiri before him, and crespo's headers feels as good as vieri's. He end up 46 goals in 42 games, with a few assists. I went 14-3 in WL with crespo. Also vieri has way more stamina than crespo, and I was a bit afraid of it, but I went to extra time a couple times and he did just fine, even scoring some decisive goals

Complete striker

Deadly anywhere near the goal

Great finesses

Great low driven shots

Great header

Fast Enough

Fair price

Stamina's not an issue

Can't think of anything

Incredible game changer player

Crespo 87. I've been playing IF Son, Aubameyang, FB Sturridge, and always felt like something was off. So I've invested my coins to buy a good player.

I was afraid of paying 510k for an 87 player, but oh my. This guy is incredible.

What makes him so good I can't understand. IF Son was very good, but weak and sometimes easy to take the ball from him. Auba is heavily reliant on runs, he can't create anything on himself, and FB Sturridge had always that shitty 2* and his dribbling doesn't feel that good also. Three high rated cards and couldn't enjoy the game because attack feels like shit.

Then I sold all my cards to buy this guy and invest on that Felipe Anderson.

His dribbling is incredibly good, I started with Hawk and he was good but changed to marksman and I think he peaks there.

So much dribbling and shooting, only thing he lacks is strenght, he's not that strong.

Weirdly he have low agressions but he goes by himself for tackles all the time.

He participates the game a lot, he's not that kind of player that you need to be all the time exploring one single skill, or that kind of player that just goes missing.

I start my team on 4321 and change to 433 2 when I put in offensive. I start playing him as target man on the first formation, and when I change to offensive he start going behind defenders.

It's incredible how much quality and enjoyement he brought to my game.

Dribbling

Everything goes into the net

Works a lot in the game

Can head

A little bit weak
