James Rodriguez (The Sniper)
By WasabiPapi, 24-10-2018

What can I say about this card... He has single handedly won me majority of my games and gets me out of not so favorable odds. I am a HUGE James fan and has always had him on my FUT since Fifa 15. Most people will see a RW with 74 pace and instantly look past it. However, in FUT 19 slower players are actually usable and can be ABSOLUTELY deadly if used correctly. I start him at RW in the 4-2-4 with the Shadow chemistry and change my formation to the 4-2-2-2 with him as my right cam. With a shadow he goes up to 85 pace or something so he can keep up with the build up play easily. I set him the stay forward and stay on the edge of the box with conservative interceptions. His Left foot is a straight WONDERWAND! Practically any Green timed finesse shot from the top right, just outside of the penalty area is cash at the far post. I usually never have a stamina issue with him because I only sprint while I am defending so I can preserve as much juice as I can for late equalizers/game winners. Dribbling is tight and can shake good defenders. I usually only have trouble going against Walker, Bellerin, etc. and will have to pass it off. Through passes and crosses are also on target given you have the right timing/power. Free kicks are also great, right behind Toni Kroos for me. I understand this card is not for every pace hog out there, but he is always drifting to the right spot to drill a screamer as long as your patient.
