For Contextual Reasons, I am a Div 1 player with 2200 skill rating.
When trying to put into words what this player is like, I immediately thought of Kyrie Irving - A dribble god. For non skillers he’ll perform like your run of the mill pacey winger, but for anyone who even likes to merely dabble in skill, Costa will unlock a different dimension to your game. His body type along with his dribbling stats and flair lead him to feel ultra responsive on the ball, meaning he wins a penalty in most games. I definitely utilise and perceive him as a shot creator and not a shot maker, but when required, he can bury a chance if needed. At this price he is hard to turn away, especially as he provided a vital link to TOTY Lewa which had been lacking for me all year.
Strong Foot shooting
Weak Foot - I feel the need to slow down and steady the player before taking a shot on the weak foot to be extra sure. I believe a 4 star weak foot would’ve made peoples
minds at ease
Strength - Could always be better on a player of this type
Originally i wasn't going to do him but as soon as i saw his stats with his price i knew i had to do him. And he is exactly what he looks like on paper. Put a marksman on this guy and he is just MAD. I gave him a 9.7/10 because I cannot make clear how godly this card is, but just on the base card he already has crazy pace, dribbling, passing, even shooting (for douglas costa) is amazing. Give a bunch of them upgrades and they go from CRAZY > AMAZING. I mean the finesses he scores are mad (he has 98 curve), the runs are just unstoppable. And hes so good Walker can slide tackle and take you out in the box and you wont even get a foul (0:43...)!!! As always with these reviews i make the cons a stretch. I'm making pace, shooting, passing and dribbling all 10/10s because they're that good.
Shot power and long shots
Agility and balance
