When I had my first glimpse at the card and the price, I thought to myself, that I might as well even try him. The first three matches (Rivals, Div. 5) were awful, as the positioning and the running routes of Gameiro seemed off, but I decided to keep him for the WL.
Having reached Gold 2 in my first WL, Gameiro had scored 30 goals in 27 games and provided 11 assists!, I partner him up front with Eriksen GR in 4222 and I gave him Catalyst chem style, as I feel that finishing stats are not that important to my gamestyle as most of my goals are scored within the box when having a clear shot.
He provided great passes and assists and due to the 99 acceleration he can start runs before the defenders can react properly (also against defenders as VVD and the likes).
The big flaw is that he only has 3* skills which somewhat decreased my ability to skill around in the penalty area and create new angles to shoot at the goal. However looking at the stats after WL it clearly did not hinder him from scoring a decent amount of goals.
- Finishing inside the box
- Very decent passing (with Catalyst)
- 4 star weak foot
- Can also be used on the wing with his pace and passing
- Decent physicality and dribbling (can make defending teams sweat!)
- 3 Star Skills - seriously impacting his ability to create angles in the box
