FIFA 14- IF Higuain Review

Post by REUS on Thu Mar 06 2014, 23:07

This is a review of IF Higuain the goal machine

http://www.futhead.com/14/players/13517/gonzalo-higuain/

Club: Napoli
Height: 6ft
Workrates: med/med
Weakfoot: 4 stars
skill moves: 3 stars

price paid: 35k
position played: ST in a 4231 (the one with wide CAMs)
Statistics: 27 games 37 goals and 8 assists  Shocked Shocked 

team played in http://www.futhead.com/14/squads/6824118/

Card Stat analysis: Do they reflect how he plays in game?

79 pace: feels about right, he is not slow and is more than fast enough to use, obviously he is no ibarbo though

78 dribbling: he has solid dribbling not amazing as it can be a little wooden, so not like messi but is more than capable of getting himself a bit of space to unleash his amazing shooting

84 shooting: this is where he comes into his own, he is the best finisher on fifa 14 and i have used people like crespo and george weah. He literally finishes everything in the box and you would expect that from someone with 98 finishing. He is also more than capable of scoring longshots and i scored one absolute rocket with him and fortunately i remembered to upload it. combine this shooting with his 88 positioning and 92 reactions and you have the best goal poacher on the game

it is the 4-3 one (that goal won me the game)

46 defending: not really relevant

65 passing: not great but as with all players on fifa his passing rarely lets him down, he is the sort of guy you want on the end of passes not the one playing them

77 heading: scored me a few headers though i didnt really test it out that much as i rely more on a passing game

Strengths

finishing (both in and outside the box)
positioning
ball control

weaknesses

dribbling can be a bit wooden
passing not great

conclusions

How good is he out of 10?

i would give him 9 out of ten, he would be ten but he is the sort of striker who needs other players to make the chances for him, but when they do create them he always scores them. I won so many games despite having way less shots than my opponent simply because higuain is so clinical. I mean you dont score 37 goals in 27 games with a striker unless he has amazing finishing

i think that he may be a bit of a marmite player, if you like to cross a lot there are probably better options. If you like to do a lot of lobbed through balls then there are better options, but if you play a passing game and are looking for a striker to finish off the chances created by your midfield then this is a player you will love.

is he worth the pricetag?

he is very cheap for an 85 rated in form at only 30k, so he gets 10 out of 10 when it comes to value for money

hope you enjoyed the review and i hope you choose him over ibarbo, one because he is better and two because your opponent will not immediately hate you when he sees him on the loading screen, though this will change when you have 3 shots on target and score all of them.

Nice review. Smile I've moved this into the Player Reviews section and added your 25k SF Points.

And just the same as your IF Samaras review, if you get a chance can you add in some full stops?
