So I decided to do the SBC and picked Gervinho over Esswein, because of his forehead, and because I had used him in previous FIFAs ( not even kidding ). Might've been one of the better choices I had made, because he is awesome. I use him as a super-sub ( usually bring him on around 60-70 min ) , and he just destroys the opponents defense. He has 90 stamina, so if you decide to play him the whole game, he will easily be able to. He can score goals with both feet, honestly doesn't feel like he has a 3 star WF, more like a 4 star. He is rapid, good dribbling stats, good passing. I use him with a Sniper chem style, so his finishing is absolutely world class. I play him in a 4-4-2 as one of the strikers, or the 433(4) as one of the wingers. He is one of the best cards I've used this year, and for the price which you can get him for (~60k), it's an absolute steal.
High/Low work rates
WF feels like a 4 star.
3 star skills
Strength (can get pushed off the ball sometimes)
Long passing is not the greatest
