I bought Gameiro because it seemed like a good card. It is not a bad card but has its cons. In 18 FUT champs games, he scored 14 goals and had 5 assists. He possesses an amazing outside of the foot shot which helps with near post shots but at times I feel like he lacks finishing on one on one finishes. Gameiro's pace height is 5'8" and he has 76 strength. His height and strength is noticeable at times where a defender bodies him (shorter players are easily intercepted in Fifa 20). Also, his pace is not perfect where there are times where Ramos, Van Dijk and Hernandez easily catchup. Gameiro has 99 jumping but in fifa 20 headers is clearly not meta so this stat means nothing
Outside Of The Foot Shot
Well Balanced Stats
Easy to Link (French Connection)
3 Star Skills
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
My God. This guy has no issue whatsoever. With a Hunter, probably the most underrated striker this FIFA. I bought him early on this Fifa and I had about 200 games and 250 goals/200 assists. I sold him to get better players but nobody succeeded like he did so I bought him back and he has another 150 games and 200 goals/200 assists. Yes this is Rivals and Squad Battles.
Shooting on both feet
Short passing accuracy
Chip shot of dreams
Not going to lie, when I first saw this card my first thought was that it was going to be really overpowered. I guessed his shooting could be fixed with a hunter, a deadeye, or a hawk, oh lord how wrong I was. The first few matches I had with him he performed good, but then his strength started to be a HUGE problem, so I decided to sell him just for buying him once again. After TONS of matches(especially weekend league), I can conclude that this card is one of the worst cards I ever had on my team. I don't know why, but for any reason it is impossible for him to score, and when he does it is always on the easy matches, those matches in which I end winning by a difference of 4 or more in which even if Gameiro didn't score I would have won. I tried him as a single striker, and also alongside Griezmann, and it was always Griezmann who had to pull my team. Gameiro just failed everything from single passes to shots without goalkeeper. He was so bad that I took my computer, created a futbin account, and made this review, so that others don't commit the same mistake I made when I first bought Gameiro. From time to time he did some good things, sadly they weren't as much as the time he failed. For a starter team or as a super sub he may be good, but a 70k player for a starter team or as a substitute is just not worth it.
- Runs like a bullet with hunter
- Good Stamina
- CANT SCORE EVEN IF HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!!!
- If a defender touches him, he falls like a feather. His strength stat feels as 10.
- Not the worst of dribbles, but expected more for an 87 even though he has 3 star skills.
