Amazing

This is my first time writing a review, hope it helps.


I've been saving up my fodder for months, and this card finally convinced me to use it. First of all, I think the price of this card is fantastic. I did the sbc for ~30k coins, but I would be willing to pay 450k for this card. I used him as a striker in the 41212(2) but mainly as a CAM in the 4231. His pace (10/10) is great for a CAM, and especially with 99 acceleration he is able to quickly get away from defenders after turning. When he got through on goal, which happens often because he makes great runs as a CAM, he has enough pace to outrun TOTS center backs. His shooting (10/10) could also not be much better than it is. He finishes almost every chance that I would expect him to score. His 4* weak foot also feels much better than a 4* weak foot. He finishes most of his chances that I take with his left foot, and even scored a couple contested left foot shots from the edge of the box. I also have no complaints about his passing (10/10). I mainly use my CAM for short passes and through balls out wide, and he hits every pass perfectly. The dribbling(11/10) on this card is easily the best I have used so far in FIFA 20. He's so quick on the ball, and still felt pretty responsive in bad gameplay. The 4* skills is also very nice to have, although I don't uses skill moves a lot. There isn't much to say about his defending(4/10) because he's a forward, but he is able to win the ball sometimes when he is given the chance while my opponent is bringing the ball of their own half. Finally, the physical (8/10) on this card is much better than I had expected. I was expecting him to get destroyed anytime he was challenged by a defender because of his low strength, but I was surprised by his ability to hold onto the ball. The ball seems to stick to his feet, even when the defender makes a great challenge. It's one of those cards that can feel impossible to steal the ball from at times. His low strength was only a problem when he was challenged or being pushed while shooting. This would make his shot weak or innacurate sometimes. His stamina (90) does create an issue at the end of games occasionally, but its not really that big of a problem.


My overall opinion on this card is that it is fantastic value for the price. I think that this card would be around 800k+ if it were on the market. I have no regrets about using 80% of my fodder on him. I have a below average team for this stage of the game, and he took my team to the next level. If your on the fence about doing the sbc, I 100% recommend doing it.

From Gold 3 Player to Gold 1/Elite 3

I was saving all my coins in the beginning of FIFA to buy this card as my main man next to first Kai Havertz and later the Havertz IF, however by the time I had those 280k, he rose alreay up to 340k and was extinct... So I was longly thinking if he would be worth the 400k which I had to spend in the end for a fresh one and boy, I dont regret it at all <3 He scores from all positions, he is so agile and fast that his stre...

Belgium Messi

I bought this card because his stats caught my attention due to his 90 Pace and 92 Dribbling. I tried this card in 12 games as an ST (10 Fut champs games) and Mertens has scored 19 goals and has 6 Assists. So far he has been very good and reminds me of Messi due to his dribbling ability and inside of the box finesse shots and his passing. His shooting is near Messi level but jus...
