FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: 7 Best Squad Styles You Need To Know
Argentinas international football team may have been dormant for the last few years but the South American giants will likely erupt this summer. Much like a gun-boat filled with torpedoes but no life boats, fielding an Argentine build gives you arguably more offence than youll ever need but less options on the defensive end. However, it is obviously more enjoyable scoring goals by the bucket-load than eking out close victory after close victory. Up the top of the park you have a wealth of options like no other. Luckier (or more wealthy) players will likely want to add the likes of Messi and Aguero to their rosters while extremely talented budget options are still available like Gonzalo Higuaín and Carlos Tevez. Supplying these dynamic front-men is an easy job with an Argentine squad as they have arguably one of the best wide-pairs in the game in ngel di María and Ezequiel Lavezzi. Both these men have the ability to create unmissable chances for their forwards or bang from the edge of the box themselves. The issue with an Argentine squad is the limited talent available on the defensive end and in midfield. Though you can change the likes of Tevez and Higuaín to play in midfield, there are only three midfielders available to an Argentine squad with a rating of 80-or-greater. Argentina has a similar issue with left backs and right back Zabaleta is the only gold-rated RB available so you are basically forced to utilise silver cards in your squad. High-End:: Lionel Messi 1,000,000 He may not be the most physically imposing player to have ever grace the football pitch but there are many who argue Lionel Messi is the greatest player of this generation. Messis raw talent is all too apparent in his FUT card. His 97-dribbling and 96-ball control makes him the most fluid dribbler in the game while his 97-finishing means a wide shot from Lionel is rarer than a piece of Arsenal FC silverware. He also has a creator rating of 84 enabling him to pass his brilliance on to his teammates. Bargain: Ezequiel Garay 800 Garay has likely saved the hides of every Argentine FUT manager more times than they care to mention. Of the limited range of centre backs belonging to Argentina, Garay is likely the most solid and available at a measly 800 gold. Some may be tempted by the flashier Javier Mascherano but as pure defending goes Garay is his superior. Mascheranos 74-strength and 70-heading are simply outclassed by Garays 83-strength and 81-head.
