After packing Michael Owen in a pre-order pack I did not really know what to do with the coins. Already had Hazard POTM and decided that I wanted another player with the Finesse shot trait who could cut in from the right and then shoot. And my god, he can shoot. The SBC was incredibly expensive but I overestimated my packluck, as after 20 packs I didnt pack a single board. So, 400k for Florian Thauvin. I was so disappointed, but after a few games that really changed. First, he played right CAM in a very narrow 4222 so I had him and Hazard located perfectly for the finesse shots as soon as I got possession , but after some WL rewards I changed my team. He became the left striker in a 5212, with IF Belotti (also insane) alongside and Hazard at CAM. Didnt really work out, so I chose to swap HAzard and Thauvin. Best decision I made. Ever. In my life. He can literally shoot from everywhere and it finesses in the top corner. His runs from CAM behind the defense when you hold up play are even better. Not to mention the header from corner kicks, from the penalty spot he knocks in every header and wins every battle. Just insane, just insane. Best player I have used this FIFA.
- Finesse shots
- Headers from corner kicks
- Inconsistent in his finishing sometimes, can miss a sitter
- 3* WF is very clear, feels like 2* or 3* sometimes
- Expensive and untradeable
Thauvin is one of the best players i've played with on fifa 19. Before i got Thauvin, i did the Pavon and the Salvio SBC's, but i got the feeling that their pace didn't really come to good use and that i missed someone who could do more than run. With the 150K i had i did the Ligue 1 SBC. Once i got him, i only had around 10k-20k to build a team with. With Guilavogui (188cm) and N'zonzi (196cm), i knew i could put Thauvin forward and have him there all game. With a left foot, 4 star skills, 86 pace, 85 shooting and 87 dribbling, it almost seems too easy to cut inside and finesse shot it in the left bin. He's 179cm, but because he has 80 heading accuracy, he still heads alot of the balls he gets.
4 star skills
hard to build a team around
