For an all-rounded dough with an ambidexterity complex that turns football into a sinful delight, you need:
- one dane
- ambidextrous feet
- 20/20 vision
- football brain
- 181cm | 5'11"
- 77 strength
Mix dough in 'LCAM' with 'hunter' sugar and spread buttery through balls from outwide.
Roll dough in 'CAM' then apply thick layers of croquetas until opponent texture turns thin and flaky.
Lay dough on stone-cold Attacking third for generous amount of one-touch longshots from outside the box.
Bake in 'med/high' for 90+ mins until opposition turns brown.
Finally, sprinkle with a golf swing celebration R1, left, right for the cherry on top.

Welcome to the Review of the 2nd Best CAM in the game! Behind TOTY De Bruyne.
I was blessed to have packed him from the BPL TOTS SBC.
He fitted straight into my Mega Team and if you are asking yourself how did you get this team? Fifa Points at the start of FIFA 19 + Good Rewards from Div 1 & Gold 1, Elite 3.
Lets get into the Stats:
Pace - 9/10 -> He Feels pretty quick, with Engine i felt the 95 Acceleration a lot - his Sprint Speed of 92 is also alright. It isnt enough to fully escape the Meta Defenders like Rio / Any Van Dijk / Desailly & Banc , but you can go around them with some silky Skill Moves.
Shooting 10/10 -> OMG! This guy has 99 Long Shots (Base) + 97 Long Shots & 5* Weak Foot.. do i need to add anything to that? He will score pretty much every longshot you take around the Box. You can Tell by the 19 Goals in 51 Games -> All of them were Longshots.
Passing 11/10 -> Yes, 11/10. Every Pass will find its way, if you are in a wrong body position just press LT + pass for a flair pass. He will always find your striker, no matter what distance, his passing is literally broken! The Stat that improved my Weeekend League for sure, he will find my Mbappe & Dinho with every over the top ball .. Perfectly Weighted Pass to R9.. Its just insane. 31 Assists speak for themselves.
Dribbling 10/10-> Smooth , La Croqueta , Perfect Ball Control. You know the OP Mechanics of the game. He has pretty much all of it , bar the 5 Star Skills which would have made him the best CAM in the game.
Defending 8/10 -> Not to be expected but kind of "disappointed". This & Physical is the difference to KDB TOTY. He will intercept quite a few balls due to his 95 Acceleration , BUT his tackling is not really worth noting.
Physical 7/10 -> Small Build - 77 Strength and 61 Aggression is just not enough. Compare this to TOTY KDB 88 & 89 respectively. He wont win any headers, will get outmuscled against defenders 9/10 Times. The Stamina of 99 is what saves this guy - he can go 120 Minutes without tiring and believe me.. He will always get an assist because he will also be able to find that killer pass in the 120th minute!
Overall for 900K coins you cant go wrong with buying this guy. If you have spare coins give him a try!
I was lucky enough to get him in my pl guaranteed, sadly I already have his 93. But when I tried this card it was just wow. He's shots is very very good, and his first touch is just wow. HE is one of the best cams in the game.
Has this card in my red player picks and had to change my team a bit to fit him in, but it's very much worth it.
Looking at the stats I put a marksman on him to boost his physical, shooting and his agility. His passing is already maxed out. He plays as CAM for me in a 4-3-1-2 and I think this is the position where he fits the best.
For a CAM he definitely has enough pace. He gets behind easily. No blistering Mbappe pace obviously, but enough to fit the needs of the game.
His first touch is almost perfect. For some reason he feels very calm and composed when in possession of the ball. He's agile enough and has great balance. With four star skill moves he's versatile enough to pass a couple of defenders.
The shooting of this card is superb. Long shots, in the box, finesse shots, low driven, lobbed shots. He can do it all. As a CAM his five star weak foot comes in handy when taking long shots from outside the box. Some of the finesses he scores are absolutely filthy.
This is the segment where this card really shines. His passes are almost perfect. His vision and short passing is 99 and it shows. In the playmaker role with a marksman he's a 98 CAM. His crosses are also very deadly and he can play on the wings if he has to. Free kick accuracy is also on point. Basically all the passing stats are close to max or maxed out and it definitely shows in game.
The defending of this card surprised me. There's a lot of times where he wins the ball back high up the pitch to immediately start a counter attack. Because of this I think he could even play an attacking CM role. He would excel in that role in a 4-3-3(2) the most. Granted it's not a destroyer type card, but he does enough interceptions in a game to get noticed.
The best stat in the physical department is his stamina. He can really go all match and extra time no problem. His strength is decent and he can hold defenders off well enough, though it's not amazing.
Eriksen is a special card. With him you feel more in control of the attacking midfield. It is a combination of his stamina, defending capabilities, agility, balance, passing, shooting that makes him a very effective CAM. Looking at the price of other TOTS cards at the moment and even Icons I would say that he is well worth a million coins.
- Calm and composed
- Gives control in the attacking midfield
- Wins the ball back
- Master passer
- Great shooting
- Perfect CAM
- Versatile, he can play all attacking roles
- Five star WF
- Low heading accuracy and jumping
- Hard to link if you don't play Premier League or Icons
Eriksen is the best cam I have used in FIFA 19 (I have not used Cruyff or Socrates). It does take a while to get used to as he feels a lot clunkier than some of the players I had used before him. Most recently that was TOTS Bernardo Silva, but once you get used to him (and when playing in good connection) he bangs in goals and plays perfect passes for assists. Overall, I would recommend buying him 100% and if you have him untradeable to definitely use him.
- Amazing power shots
- Great passing
- Great attacking work rate
- 99 Stamina is really useful for ET games in champs
- Good value for coins (only 1 mil for this card is a steal)
- Bad defensive work rate (feels like he is playing striker sometimes)
- Feels weak
- Bad in slow gameplay
