86 - IF
5.0
Road to Gullit!
By SantiagoMA12, 19-11-2020

Hello and welcome to another of my reviews. Today I will have the luck to make a review about IF Goretzka. I got this beast player out of a Jumbo Gold Rare Players Pack as I saved one for the TOTW. Maybe a Mane or a Kante would have been better tu this card is definitely amazing too. If he countinues having a good season he will be a Gullit, he makes everything, it reminds me of Goretzka RTTF of FIFA 20, that card was broken, and there is no disappointment in this card, as it is broken too. I play him with an engine, yeah a to of people put him shadow or leave it at basic, but I think he needs a little more of balance, and yeah maybe with engine he won’t be so fast, but I don’t want him to play as a winger so it’s good and for me his defense is more than enough

Good shooting for a Midfielder

I am a Gold 1 player and I got him in my red picks a couple of months ago. I like building teams around red players and since he was my best one so far, I decided to use him. He is a good card, but I probably wouldn't have used him if it wasn't for a red. I use him as CDM in 4231 narrow in different teams with 2 different instructions as balanced attacking and stay back while attacking. When playing with balanced he struggles to return to defense since he is not that fast, but he really adds quality to the attack. Although he managed to score goals as a CDM I needed him to stay back to prevent counter-attacks. He is very good physically but not agile which limits his reactions. Also even if I instruct him to stay back, around the 70-minute mark he generally has 60-65 stamina left, and I need to sub him out. I haven't paid anything for this card but 200k is a little overpriced in my opinion. I tried out different CDMs such as Kante and Sanches IF which were better than him. I think if you need a Bundesliga CDM he will do the job but Sanchez IF or similar cards with more pace will be more suitable.
