Really good - What did you expect?
By jesusmorales, 25-09-2020

You want a review, so I keep the backstory short: Pulled him in my first rivals reward, turns out good cards do exist in these. So after 107 matches he is still exciting but I have long stopped overusing my new toy and can rate him as a player in a system. I'm in Div4 and played one WL now with him, finishing at 17 wins.


He is phenomenal as a CAM and Striker and a very good winger as well, while he is definetely wasted on that position. Since I switched him according to the match situation between CAM, Striker and rarely Winger I gave him the more versatile Maestro over Hawk.


He is a brilliant passer 99% of the time but still sometimes does these weird passes that go right into the defender, every player seems to do randomly. His dribbling is as good as his stats show you. Give him a bit of space as a defender and you're in trouble. He is just really hard to catch again once he's broken free. However, he is not strong enough to muscle off any centre back and you should avoid most contact with defenders. That shouldn't be a huge problem with his ball control though.

And once you get yourself into a decent position he is clinical outside and inside the box, while his finishing with maestro was "just" very good and not outstanding. His 4* weak foot is more than enough inside the box, outside you should prefer his more consistent right foot, which wasn't a problem most of the time.


Overall he might just be the most versatile offensive player you could get. You want to make use of this by having him in a central role, being able to use all of his 9.5/10 strengths at once. He is always gonna be a mismatch there and your opponent has to take care of him all the time. And maybe you pair him with other top players, for example Messi and your opponent just can't cover both (or more) threats anymore.


So 10/10 Shooting, 10/10 Passing, 10/10 Dribbling. Well, speaking of Messi: I just added him to my team and he somehow broke the scale I used before. He is just something else. His movement and dribbling is even mure fluent and his finesse shots added an element to the game that wasn't there before. Therefore I have to deduct a point for Pele in these two areas. However, I only got Messi for 10 matches now, so this might be some early excitement playing into my rating.


So is he worth it? If you have the coins, sure. He obviously is a guy you get into your team to get the last possible percent out of this position. This comes at a cost for every of the best possible cards. From that perspective his price seems about right.


  • Passing as good as FIFA allows it to be
  • Superb power shots
  • Really good inside the box
  • Really good dribbler if given a tiny bit of space
  • As pacey as it gets - Once he's gone, he's gone


  • "Alright" Strength - Get's muscled off quickly by CBs and most Fullbacks once they touch him
  • Quite small and therefore no aerial threat at all- Does have a suprisingly decent chance to win a header after goalkicks though
  • Costs twice as much as Messi, while maybe even being a small downgrade
