FIFA 22 meta might be great for Socrates, but he is still slept on. I play him as a CAM in 41212(2) and with the Hunter Chem Style, currently in DIV 3. He quickly became my main goalscorer despite having good ST in front of him. He can score finesse shots from 25 meters, inside the box, and scored a beatiful bicycle kick with his "weak" foot (he has none). His physical presence on the pitch due to height and body type is incredible, he feels really fast and doesn't move like a truck, which was his biggest flaw in FIFA 21. Socrates has phenomenal positioning and runs in the attack, and he is ice cold in front of the goal. His passes are also elite this year.
For 520k (right now), you get a maestro for your team who can do it all, 4*5* speak for themselves, for me he is the perfect CAM this year.
IQ in the attack
shooting (doesn't matter where or how you shoot from)
Dribbling (Ball Control)
Can play 90 minutes easily
Soemtimes (!!!) falls down easily because of his balance
520k might be a lot of money for some people
Not a "meta" player that everyone can use well immediately (like Ben Yedder, Rashford etc.)
