Hello everybody! First of all, I hope every single person that is reading this is having a good day. Last but not least, I’m spanish, so sorry if I spell something wrong. Thanks, and let’s get down to business!
When FUTBIN updated and I saw this card, I knew from the very first moment that I needed him. I didn’t care about his stats. I just went to the FUT web app, and did him with fodder I had. And thats how I got Paco, a beautifil and inspiring story. Now seriously, he is a very fun card!
Paco’s positioning is pretty good. With his Medium / Low workrates he always stays close to recieve a pass (with balanced tactics), but high enough to start a run. Apart from positioning, I thought he was going to get outshined by Isak. I was WRONG. If he gets into the box, he is very clinical, and he is also not bad at a reasonable distance. His dribbling is by miles better than Isak’s. Those stats, boosted with a marksman, with his body type, are a deadly combination. Just do a few skills and dribbles and you will get a shot in no time.
You may be asking, why did I separate passing from attacking? Simple, passing can be used also in defense. As you can see, he has decent stats in vision and short pass, that is what we look for in a ST.
He is definetly not 91, I feel it like 93 - 95. But as always in this FIFA, he could not outrun Varane or Mendy.
He is pretty strong and gets the ball easy on pressure, but as long as I keep Isak in my team, Isak will be my tank. Stamina is not bad, but I always had to switch him on the upper 70s
Pretty good card for its price with an upgrade chance. I would definetly do him if he fits in your team.
That said, thanks for taking your time to read this and, again, have a nice day!
This guy has been an absolute steal for me since placing him into my lineup. People are going to bash his work rates or his pacing not being top tier. But for me the style of gameplay works perfectly.
DISCLAIMER: I love to use a La Liga sqaud, just a personal preference not saying that this is the best at all option out there. I also am a huge advocate on chemistry (both team and player). I feel that there is a big difference in how the AI interacts the the player benefits in game is incredible. Also to be honest if you are a bad player at FIFA having the best players in the game helps, but in no way is a guarantee that you will win. So understanding that I hope that the review helps.
He is an absolute banger from outside of the box. I personally prefer the HAWK Chemistry style which puts his shooting stats at 98 overall (only one that is below 90 is penalties (but I use other players for penalties) His dribbling is excellent in tight spaces and he really can maneuver his way through the box. With the HAWK the added benefit of the jumping and strength really helps his aerial game. He is quite effective for someone of his size and his speed helps him to out run defenders. Now bear in mind speed when dribbling is considerably slower than when without the ball, which is the case with everyone, speed dribblers included; so speedy defenders may catch him. However, with some skill moves and/or switching to his 4* weak foot he does fine. I love cutting back with him and hitting the bender (99 long shots, 99 curve) around the keeper to the far post.
The work rates work great for my 4-3-3 (4) formation. I typically play extremely defensive. Even then, I have no trouble countering and he is always in a great position to counter and get behind the defense for the break. Even using him as the point man to have him hold in the center and swing the ball to the wings or send the give and go to my CAM. Work rates, when you understand them can be extremely useful if your play style suits those particular rates. I've used High/High work rates for ST and these players are just always out of position and offsides for me. So if they work for you great. If you have him and your absolutely cannot deal with them then swap up the tactics and/or change formations a bit.
Pace and Shooting, absolute beast with the Hawk Chem Style
Work Rates, if you play a counter attack style of gameplay
Physical Attributes suprisingly good for someone of his height and body type
