The resident Dream Team Gaming FIFA-coach Fully is back.
This week focuses on making the most of your FIFA coins by building the best possible team for just 500k.
Before you get going…
Start this formation as a 4-3-3 to ensure everyone is on the highest chemistry possible.
As you might realise straight away, Casemiro is not on full chemistry, neither is the team.
However, you would add a La Liga manager which would take Casemiro up to 7 chemistry, and once you have played 10 games, he would go up to 8 and everyone else would go up to 10.
In a game, you would be using 4-2-3-1 lined up like this:
Up close and personal
I would start with Richarlison at ST over Calvert-Lewis because of the current META of crossing.
Whilst Richarlison is a good player and has decent jumping stats (85), most of your crosses will be going to the back post which is where we want 6’2 Calvert-Lewin with his 92 jumping to challenge for headers in that area.
On the Left-Wing
Sane should be played out wide on the left.
He has the pace to punish anyone on the counter-attack but you want to be triggering him to run forward by pressing L1/LB (like I mentioned in last weeks tips). This will make him run into space behind the defender.
When you get into a crossing area, before doing the flick up cross (R3/RS), turn back towards your own goal, as this will decrease the chances of your cross going close enough to the keeper for him to catch it or tip the ball away.
Eriksen in Central Attacking Midfield
CAM is a difficult one as people like the player to do different things in this position, so opinion will always differ.
I want my CAM to be able to shoot from distance and to be able to control the ball instantly when it comes to his feet.
Eriksen has 89 long shots and 91 ball control which is perfect for that.
Central Defensive Midfield
Casemiro and Fabinho are pretty much like for like.
Two tall, strong, ball-winning midfielders who aren’t going to get bullied off the ball.
Kante is usually the best in this position despite his height, however, due to his cost, I have gone for Casemiro and Fabinho who are more than capable of getting the job done.
Mendy and Aurier may be two surprise players in this squad.
The reason for that is, I’ve sacrificed the quality here in order to make sure the rest of the team is up to scratch.
I believe Mendy is a very good LB – he’s tall and has 81 pace which is pretty good for the price. There’s not a lot of tall full backs with pace which is why in tournaments you will see a lot of pro players play the likes Ramos at LB or RB to stop headers. Aurier is in there to make sure Eriksen is starting on the highest chemistry possible.
Umtiti and Varane
If we’re excluding any special cards, Varane is the best defender on the game.
At 6’3 with 84 pace, he’s literally the perfect CB.
Normally you would have Ramos here but as he costs too much, Umtiti is good.
Umtiti is also Fench and playing in La Liga so the chemistry puts them both on 10.
In goal, you can’t go wrong with Courtois
A good keeper who fits the chemistry.
Just remember that keeper movement in game!
