Most of the comments on this card are "the 3 star 3 star kills him" and "why couldn't they just give him four star four star." But I decided to take the risk and complete him anyway because the rest of the stats looked really good; his work rates are excellent. I played him as a LAM in a 4-2-2-2, and he was brilliant. His pace is obviously exceptional. His dribbling is world-class. With a deadeye, his shooting and passing are also brilliant. His high agility and balance compensate for the 3 star weak foot, for you can just use drag backs to create space on his right foot. The 3 star skills are not a problem either as ball rolls, drag backs, and fake shots are essentially all you need this year. For me, he replaced league SBC Leonardo and he was a massive upgrade. As long as you are willing to look past the weak foot and give him a chance, you will not be disappointed in this card.
Agility and balance for drag backs
So So i did this sbc so i coukd sell my shapeshifter mertens (who is fantastic) brought him into my team on 8 chem in a 451. i play a 4222 in game with him uptop with fut birthday Correa. hes currently on 4 games 6 goals and 4 assists. he feels amazing on the ball. the most broken L1 R1 dribbling in this game, and his pace is just blistering!! if you have the coins i definatly reccommend you complete this card he is worth every penny in my books and easily makes up for his lack of wf and skills.
L1 R1 Dribbling
RIGHT footed shooting
lack of skills
i guess weak foot but two of his 6 goals came from it soooooo
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
I decided to do Gervinho because he looks really good, besides the 3 star weak foot and skills, and he fits into my squad. I completed the sbc for 35k and he was an absolute BARGAIN. I play him at ST in 4-2-3-1 or at LAM sometimes, he can really play anywhere. The first thing I noticed is the pace. Insane. He feels so insane and the ball with super agility and flash-like speed. His left foot also felt pretty solid and it feels like a 4 star weak foot sometimes. His shooting was also surprisingly amazing for me and he has scored 58 goals in 51 games along with 23 assists. He is basically a cheap Adama Traore with less strength but more passing and shooting.
Passing (with Deadeye)
3 star weak foot (Because it feels like 4)
Strength (It's not actually bad)
