Being of Croatian heritage I've always had a great admiration for Davor Suker, my mum used to rave about him when I was a kid growing up in Australia, as a rugby loving kid I never really understood his appeal until i got older and got the football bug. As i got in to football and embraced my slavic roots I grew to idolise this man and his goalscoring exploits for the motherland.
Now when he was introduced to FIFA I had a strong desire to try him but up until FIFA 22 I've never been able to afford him, now the market is bananas and this man is so cheap that I had to try him. Ladies and gents all I can say is that for 300k yu'd be hard pressed to find a better striker in this game.
Sukers stats are so well rounded that he can fill the complete striker role for top tier team easily and is so competent in front of goal that you'll genuinely be surprised at his ability.
I play suker with a HUNTER chem style to max out his speed to ensure he can play in the current meta.You'll find 95 PACE to be more than enough to get the job done.Furthermore, I find that his dribbling is more than ample for challenges of DIV 1 and elite, you're generally playing off the shoulder of defenders so sprint through or getting a touch or two in the box to get a shot off so his agility and balance are also fine for me. I can understand that it might not be to everyone's style but it works well for me. You've got the added benfit of 4 STAR SKILLS as well to help gain an extra yard or two for a clear shot.
The shooting on this card really is the highlight, there is something special about left footed players, don't ask me what it is exactly but their shots are lethal. Also, I think there's something to be said about the prevalance of right footed strikers being the meta, maybe people don't defend left footers as often? I don't know but I love him. 99 FINISHING with a hunter and 91 LONG SHOTS is fantastic and you get the added bonus of OUTSIDE FOOT SHOT trait.
The passing on this card is great as well, CURVE at 90 and SHORT PASSING of 86 means you can build up moves confidently using suker as a focal point. 4 STAR WEAK FOOT gives him versatility as well. I have stoichkov in my team as well and I can tell you that the difference between a 3 star and 4 star weak foot is massive. Also did I mention free kicks are an option for you?
His physicality is about average, I have had some success with his shielding if you get in front of a CB and just tap L2 but it isn't super reliable. His jumping paired with his 82 heading means you have a fair chance of scoring off crosses and corners but based on the meta it won't be a major source of goals, more like a happy bonus. The real highlight of the physicality is the 87 STAMINA. You know with confidence that Suker will continue making runs into the 90th minute. Beyond that though, in extra time, you will probably want to sub him if possible.
In all, if you splash out on this card you'll get a lethal finisher who has the added benefit of the icon links. At 300k (and rapidly dropping) i really can't see a tradable striker that offers the same stats as Suker, give him a try and you won't be disappointed.
