Trying to choose between him and Johnathon for the weekend League. This guy really is insane in all departments. He has that extra but of pace that is almost needed at this point with how fast the defenders are and his shots with both feet felt amazing. Would defo recommended trying him if you can fit him in your team
- shooting with both feet
- stamina and strength
- passing for a striker
- quite expensive
- lack of links
I have only played a few games with him, because I didn't have a lot of time. But... I needed to send this message to all of you warmhearted Ben-Yedder-using shushers.
If there would be a higher version then prime icon moments Eusebio, he would exactly feel like this guy. First of all, I don't want to disrespect Eusebio. The fact that this "Teixeira" guy is better than one of the best icons in the game is just EA's mistake.
I've come to a point that I have tried so many strikers, that I'm looking for my strikers in the CSL right now.
Some players I've used in ST position: Del Piero 87, Zola 85, Giovinco 92, Lacazette FBD, Maddison Moments,...
None of them came close to this Brazilian beast.
When I first saw his price I didn't immediately see why he was worth 500k, but when I put on my goddamn glasses and looked at his stats I saw this would be like a Ben Yedder on steroids.
Also, try to snipe him because I've seen a lot of people putting him up under the price.
Idk for you guys, but my colors on this review started tripping, so I'm sorry for that.
-Perfect link with Miranda (but honestly, who did him?)
-And all the rest I haven't mentioned yet.
-Links ( but try 451 for chem with 2 icon or Brazilians)
-Long passing maybe
-Destroying the carreers of many Icons, and stealing the spotlight from Ben Ketser.
-Nah, jk there are no real cons.
As I expected, this guy is a beast. His shot power feels like above 99, even it is just 92 with Marksman. His shooting is very clean, scoring 90% of the chances from inside the box. His dribbling is very good, feels so agile, like Neymar. Dribbling only with the analog is brokend on this card. You can't get the ball fom his feet. His passing is good for a ST and the 99 stamina is a big pro. Because of his height, defenders like Boateng, VVD are pushing him off the ball.
it s pretty hard to link him
Incredible. Thats the first word that springs to mind while thinking of this player. He's perfect. When the serei and csl/eredivise guaranteed packs released I was broke with minimal fodder In my club so I had no chance of comleting them, or so I thought. I chucked some alright players and I did the pack and got him. I was extatic. He Is a great card that has completely changed my FUT. His pace is amazing. I am yet to find a con about him. Normally a csl player would have terrible links but screen as the tots was full of Brazilians it was perfect. He is worth every penny!
(Everything you want tbh)
Maybe 4* 4* but with the rest of the stats it's fine
I have never written reviews for any player before, but after playing with TOTS Teixeira for 14 games I decided I need to write a review to let the community know how he plays in game.
I played him as the right striker along side TOTS Johnathan with TOTS Reus (untradeable) as CAM in 4312. In game, TOTS Kimmich (untradeable) and 89 Gerrard (untradeable) play left and right CM's respectively with 85 Gattuso as middle CM. This attack and midfield is backed by TOTS Reguilion, TOTS Pique, 87 Cannavaro and 91 Hakimi in defense and TOTS MATS in goal. Only players I am not convinced about are 85 Gattuso and TOTS MATS (for some reason, his gold card felt more consistent than his TOTS and this card lets in long shots every other game).
I did not expect much from the CSL striker duo but bought them to try out because I did not pack any elite Ligue 1 players after spending more than 14000 points and 1.2 million coins on promo packs.
Coming to Teixeira, he scored 18 and assisted 11 in 14 Rivals games and to my surprise, he is the best striker I have used in Fifa 20 (cannot wait to play him this WL). I have used some good ST/CF like Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar, Mbappe, Griezmann, 87 Ben Yedder, 95 Reus, 91 Drogba, 92 Raul etc. but this guy is by far my favorite and most fun card to play with. I have not used the elites like R9 (used on loan), Eusebio, Kruyff etc. so cannot comment on how he compares to those.
His partner in crime Johnathan was good but somehow lacked the finish and composure Teixerira has. However, Johnathan's passing was much better than his card stats which made it possible for him to make pin point passes to Teixeira for him to finish.
Last but not the least, I am not sure if he will remain like this till end of the game. After every patch, I feel players play differently where some play worse and some become more op.
- One of the most agile players I have used (like Mertens/Insigne, but with better composure, finishing,strength and aggression)
- Silky smooth dribbling with perfect ball control.
- Clinical Finishing
- 4* skills
- 4* weak foot which feels like 5*. I believe I scored more with his left foot than right.
- Maybe better strength and aggression, but I never felt this was an issue
- 5* skill moves for skillers
