I've played him for 10 matches and scored 17 goals. my first impressions are that he feels a bit clunky and his is speed seems slower in game (i played him with the sniper chem style). His finishing is great as he has awesome shooting stats and very good composure. Don't expect him to be a playmaker, he mostly stays inside the box asking for the ball. I find that he protects the ball really well because of his balance and can sometimes bully even big defenders like Varane, Ramos. There are certainly better and more overpowered strikers in the game, but if you like the hype and want to try him out, go for it! I believe his price will drop a lot in the next days and there are more informs to come.
3 star weak foot
3 star dribbling
What this man lacks in eyebrows, he makes up for with his strength and precision. There is a reason i titled this review 'The Baby Faced Assassin'. I tried out a variety of chemistry styles on him and the ones i liked the most were hunter and sniper. I have only played FUT champs with him so far but he has 18 goals in 15 games and i can't wait to try him out in div rivals (i am a div 4/5 player).
Massively depends on the chem style. With hunter he can beat most defenders but with snipers, deadeyes, etc it feels like he isn't running at full speed.
His main strength. SO clinical, he can score everything: tap ins, 1 on 1s, finesses outside the box, penalties, long shots and even headers! 99 curve means his finesse shots are deadly and 94 shot power means he can blast one in from anywhere. 78 long shots is a massive lie as he can smash them in from outside the box but the only complaint is the 3 star weak foot. He can miss good chances on his right foot
His passing stats are mostly decent but one stat kills it. 47 long passing. The amount of times he had to play a simple through ball and tapped it into the defenders path, the rest of his stats are fine, 81 vision is helpful and 96 short passing means he is key to one twos but he cannot play long passes.
This one is a bit harsh but over time he can turn into a truck with 77 agility and 76 balance. The rest of his stats are great. He has a first touch to rival Berbatov and his work-rates are perfect but his balance and agility really lets him down sometimes
Fantastic. Can barge of any defender and always uses his strength to the best. Van Dijk? Gets destroyed. Gullit? More like Bulls_it. Cannavaro and Varane are still trying to figure out where he went and Lenglet as been left in dust. His stamina is normally good enough to last the full 90 and his heading accuracy is better than it seems but not amazing.

Agility and Balance
My God I was lucky to get him in my player picks. His finesse shot trait is just pure criminal. Best at ST,CAM,RAM. Huge body build with great strength and fast pace. Although his height and strength he can still dribble and get past players. 95 short passing means he can tiki taka but don't long pass with him.
Composure and Physical
This is by far...the best 86 ive ever used in fifa and ive been playing since Fifa 12. First off, if you need a true, all around striker just buy him. Hes going to get an upgrade and this card will be an 88-90 ovr based on the last upgrades players like Mbappe got when he was up and coming, except haland is better than Mbappe in real life and in game (dont @ me its true). Second , putting marksman on this car will get him to 93 St... which will be 96 when he gets upgraded. 300k is a steal for the best Striker ive used and i used headliners lewa... His shooting is great inside and outside the box and his composure makes him lethal. hes always in the right place and can finish on his 3* wf (which will get upgraded to 4 or 5* wf ). His passing is ridiculous... he always plays perfect thru balls to my wingers or cam and his chip over the top through balls are clinical. Add his 97 CURVE to the mix and you have a 6'4, 90 pace beast whos got 82 agility w/ marksman and has better passing than most cams. The card is 300k for a reason people.... just buy it or wait for OTW.
- Best shooting
- Massive upgrades coming
- Short Passing
- Long Passing
Couldn't decide whether to get this card or not but in the end spent the 240k.
Overall he's quite good but I'll say it right now - absolutely not worth the price.
Pace - Fast enough despite the agility, one thing he does that's great is he turns and breaks really quickly away from defenders and it does get you goals.
Shooting - Good, expected more though considering he's 240k (I'm aware he's currently 280k). He scores 7 times out of 10. Misses stupid shots that should be a goal. His Finesse shot from anywhere around the edge or inside the area is unreal. the power he gets in the shots with curve is mental.
Passing - Good, got a good chunk of assists for me, 10 more than goals in 20 games.
Dribbling - better than expected, agility isn't really an issue surprisingly, keeps the ball at a bit of a distance though and it means you'll lose possession dribbling with him.
Defending - overall bad but he's a striker. Very strong though and it wins him loose balls and players that dawdle with defenders.
Physical - far and away his best attribute. The strength is almost unbelievable. Bullied Van Dijk 3 times in the same game to score a brace and get an assist. Good Stamina.
Overall he's a good player but he's about 80k more than i'd be willing to pay for him. 200k mark is about what I think he should be, not 280 that he is currently. He will get you goals Guaranteed but that age old problem comes up, doesn't live up to the price tag. It's quite limiting to use him as well because he's Norwegian. So unless you plan on using Sancho or Guerreiro than you're going to need a bundesliga team around him.
Try him by all means, he is good, sometimes brilliant, and i completely get why he's the price he is, FIFA 20 Meta but with strength...Despite that though he's far too expensive.
- Finesse Shot
- Price - Expected more out of him
- Linkability - Not impossible, just difficult in certain formations.
