when first seeing this card i decided to put aside how terrible this gameplay is and buy my favourite player with one of the most ridiculous pace upgrades (36 from base card) in all of fifa. i didn't expect fifa to give him this sick of a card on basically every aspect. i played him as a right cdm with shadow who joins the attack and must say that this might be the most underpriced card in this game. 250 k for a card like this is a joke even in team of the season. his defensive presence is excellent because of his pretty much perfect defending stats with a shadow and his 90 strength, i was kind of worried about his aggression because this is one of my favourite stats to have on a defensive oriented player but this was not too noticeable, i found that aggressive interceptions helps with this if you find it noticeable. his positioning both attacking and defensive wise is very good, on balanced attack he made nasty runs when you needed him to en when you are defending on cut passing lanes and cover center he will always have good chance at intercepting.
his shooting stats are incredible and this shows in game. for a cdm he will finish everything you want him to and he scored 3 times in 6 fut champs games ( 1 long shot ) ( 1 ez finish ) ( 1 out of box volley ) passing stats are also top notch but this should speak for itself, what i find especially fun about this card is that it actually feels like playing with kroos in real life if you get what im saying, pace is very good. don't worry about sprint speed he is a midfielder its not like he makes runs all the time beyond the defence like adama traore so his acceleration was fine. agility and balance is probably the reason this guy is so cheap because of the fact that the fifa community is extremely meta dependent but i found that his other stats like composure and ball control still make him feel very smooth on the ball and hard to push off under pressure. all around great player 5/5 would recommend using in your team
speed ( high acceleration )
very fun player
agility ( only slightly
agression ( only slightly
I picked this card of in the La Liga Guaranteed SBC and.. wow. By far top 3 best midfielders i've used this year. I'm currently using him as a right CDM but on occasions i move him to CAM and get this best from his shooting stats. I use him along side De Jong and Saul in the midfield and they're like architects. This card compared to Saul is like comparing Messi to Jesse Lingard, Its incomparable. This card is by far the most overpowered underpriced card you can find on the market. His outside the box shots , ball control, passing, all insane. The only big downside to this card is definitely his agility and sprint speed. In game you can't really feel the sprint speed but the agility is most defiantly noticeable.
Outside the box shots
I got him in my red picks and decided to try him out as a cdm, replacing 90 rated Pep Guardiola that i got from my prime icon pack. I first doubted that he'll be a better cdm than Pep, mainly because his sprint speed and jumping stats are abysmal. but after 15 games in WL, he is a total game changer. His defending does not feel inferior to Pep's and he excels at every other department.
His passing are without a doubt one of the best in the game, just amazing! At cdm, he is able to perfectly distribute the ball to my forwards.
He holds the ball well, feels quite agile despite his low agility stat. And with his 99 acceleration with a shadow chem style, he can chase anyone to put up pressure when u make a mistake in defending, but note that you will have to switch to your other players because ultimately, he will get outpaced in about 2-3 seconds. (enough time for you to use other players to chase your opponent, or cut passing lane)
His sprint speed can also be a problem when you defend against counter attack. I use him to take corners, just so that other players will take care of defending against a counter attack. If you have high pace defenders, this will not be too much of a problem.
He is a really good box to box midfielder, i mostly use him on stay back while attacking, but when im chasing a goal, i have him on join the attack and he can contribute a lot up the field.
Overall TOTSSF Kroos have been amazing for me. He is an all rounder midfield that can attack and defend. He is a much better player than 90 rated Pep Guardiola, and even a lot better than 91 rated Veron. For a 96 rated player that cost less than 200k, he is a relatively cheap player that will improve your squad.
On a personal note, I feel that it is only good to play him at cdm, if you have really fast CBs and FBs to cover behind him.
- 99 Acceleration (shadow chem style) makes up for his low sprint speed.
- Long shots
- Defends quite well
- 5* Weak foot
- Sprint speed
Wow. Kroos is a god. He is by far the best cdm I have used in this game. I brought him in a few games into weekend league because my TOTS Saul was incompetent and oblivious to the world he was in. I am a consistent gold 3 player but this weekend I made it to gold 1 thanks to Kroos. I have previously used UCL Live Partey as well and lets just say Kroos makes them look like Karius in the UCL final. The way he is a magnet to the ball and blocks is insane. Don't let his 74 aggression fool you. He is essentially Akinfenwa on steroids (his 90 strength might have something to do with this). All you have too do when defending is use Kroos and he will barge players like TOSF Benzema off the ball. Sometimes even without pressing tackle he will pull a John Cena and throw strikers around like frisbees. Once he got the ball back he would easily get the team out of trouble with a pass with either foot (5* WF). He has great attacking position too. As a cdm I would find him inside the 18 making dangerous runs and scoring a few cheeky goals. Normally I would be concerned with my cdm being inside the oppositions 18 on attack but his 92 stamina and his stats with a shadow gave me now fear because I knew he would be able to track back. In conclusion... Kroos is the best non Icon CDM in the game right now.
- 92 stamina
- 5* wf
- Attacking runs
- Defensive position
- Pace (with a shadow)
- League and nation links
- 3* skill moves
He surprise me in all games. He is awesome in defence and master in interceptions. His defending abilities are very good and he plays like a real defender and attack as a cam. He can do this during all game and does not leave space behind. Although he has low agility, it isn't the same in game as he can easily dribble his opponents. He is similar to Vidal in defending but in attacking as good as De Bruyne.
- Long shots
