I cannot believe how good he is for a free card. I have grinded his objective and played 12 games with him in Div1/Elite, let me tell you, this card scores from 30+ yards consistently!!
The pace and 99 curve combo along with the 5* skills allowed me to tear through teams with the likes of Kante, Vieira and most scarily Kimpembe. Verde destroys CBs with ease and his floating finesse shots just blow my mind. His height was at times an issue, and he occasionaly was bodied, but for 0 coins you cant complain. He takes approximately 45 mins to complete.
This guy is definitely worth the hour grind, and is 100% the best free card EA have given out this FIFA.
He has 23 goal contributions (16G 7A) in 15 Elite games. I play him at left ST with IF Ben Yedder and he is so slippery.
I'd definitely play him in a two striker formation (4-1-2-1-2 (2)) so that you can bounce off the other striker and get in behind with Verde. He'd probably be wasted out wide tbh.
My favourite part about Verde is his shooting and positioning. I find that he makes brilliant runs for a through ball rat like me, and he consistently scores across goal.
I don't finesse often since I play him on the left, so I can only vouch for his chip shots and power shots which are cracked. Has a hidden WF in game - his right foot is totally fine.

- Positioning and shooting close range or within 25 yards
