Mohamed Salah, one of my favorite players of modern football.
I had his regular gold card earlier this year, I did well with it at times but it wasn't good enough for me I couldn't make it work.
But then last thursday, I wasn't happy with my squad got gold 3 and rank 2 in div rivals so I was a bit bummed out, I open my players pick, bam, Mohamed Salah and Donnarumma.
I was suprised really, a 97 rated TOTS card.. And he was exactly what I needed, like a gift from God.
I still couldn't make it work but the feeling of this card is amazing, so fast so great dribbling shooting everything is spot on, hands down best card I've used offensively.
So I sold a few players updated my squad and I got a unique type of squad I think not a lot of people have, and he's been the top guy upfront. I used him on Basic chem first but Hawk is much better.
Pace, some players like Sane have 99 pace but they are sluggish and feel slow, Salah feels really fast and gets past the last man in counters.
Shooting obvious, amazing inside and outside of the box but he's left-footed some players struggle with that, shouldn't be a issue though.
Dribbling, amazing on the ball good first touches fast paced dribbling and feels very agile and strong on the ball.
Passing, this is also excellent he can cross so you can go wide with him and give crosses to taller strikers or strikers that are just good headers, he can also play tiki-taka very well and longpassing is good aswell for through balls on the counter.
Physical, strong player but I recommend playing him with Hawk to fill up his sprintspeed and make his shooting even more OP, along with the physical boost from Hawk his jumping, strength and aggression improve so he's stronger on the ball, can score those easy headers, and has the aggression to give him that fierceness while making runs.
Heading, even though his heading is low his basic jumping stat is 84 and with a Hawk on 10 chem 94 which is more than enough for him to score those easy headers you know go in if you cross at the right moment. 78 heading is enough for those type of headers, but he has hard time winning headers from defenders with 94+ jumping and 90+ heading and if they are taller than him. He can still win them every now and then but not as much.
4 star skills moves, the minimum requirement imo.
High attacking workrate.
Premier League link.
Finesse shot trait.
Quite decent defending for a forward player, intercepts quite often.
His length at times, I like him the most on the counter or playing tiki-taka.
3 star weak foot, normally I want a forward player to have at least a 4 star weakfoot and it's noticable although he can score easy goals with it.
Aerial battles sometimes.
Other than those there are no cons, best card I've used in attack.
I was really lucky i found him red in WL rewards.
Salah is the best player that i've ever used on this FIFA. I think he's after mbappe toty/tots the fastest player of the game , his speed is just ridiculous: no one can take him on open field.
His shots are rockets, he's a machine goal with both foot. Don't trust in 3 stars WF, he has at least 4 WF.
Dribbling? Nothing, look stats.
Physical is very good, obviously the top defenders are stronger than him. He's a fantastic assistman.
Heading is decent but not against top defenders (VVD): if you use a lot cross, salah is not your striker.
I use him ST in 4-2-3-1 and he's wonderful, his combination of strenght and speed makes him a unique player .
