Top striker at a low price
By semmons, 06-11-2020

It's the first icon I get this year, before I was using Lewandoski which was strong but also quite slow so I decided to substitute it whit this card which other than having overall good stats is also quite fast in comparison. I have now played more than 20 games with this icon and I feel I have made the right choice. I have a lot of fun playing with it since it is very fast and almost impossible to stop when he starts running in front of a defender, even if the defender manages to reach him Lineker can keep him behind with his strength and balance which seems way higher in game. Even Lewandowsky, who had incredible physical stats couldn't do this so well because of his lack of speed which instead Lineker owns. The passing feel also good despite the poor stats and I had no problem with it, instead, often he provided solid through passes which translated into subsequent goals. The dribbling is also fine for me, nothing crazy for sure, especially for the 3 stars skill moves but he gets the job, I especially like doing stepovers because he gains a big boost after and it. Finally, let's say something about his shooting. I wasn't fully convinced, even though it's power and week foot are superb what's bugging me is his finesse shots, I tend to use them a lot and sometimes he missed me sitters which you wouldn't expect from a player having 94 finishing. Apart from this, his shooting is phenomenal, even outside the box it can be deadly, you just need to remember not to press R1/RB too often.
