I love soccer games.
I’ve gone from being a novice to being arguably the best FIFA player in the country today.
I am very happy and excited to be facing Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Richard Attah today. It is a very great experience for both of us. I will win, though!
But I’m very happy we are bringing this plan on board. Let me tell you about my life with FIFA – it is a fascinating one!
A childhood obsession
I started playing soccer in my childhood, at age seven specifically. I used to go to game centers, which are common in Sunyani, where i grew up. In fact, I spent most of my time at game centers, which infuriated my mom. I remember very well when she gave me some beatings for consistently going to these places.
Using a default team to play in PES Master League actually improved me tremendously. Default teams do not possess so much quality like the created teams. So defeating teams with a default outfit made me a better player.
I’m brimming with confidence heading into the game today due to the maestros I’ve beaten. [Fellow Kotoko goalie] Felix Annan, Emmanuel Gyamfi, [former Kotoko and now AshGold player] Eric Donkor are all part of my conquest list!
I’ll be devastated without a win today.
Style of play
Styles of play are very critical when playing FIFA but I have several, depending on my opposition. The early exchanges of the game will inform my decision on what tactics and strategies to use.
I will decide to play a wing game once I realize the midfield of my opponent is very good. I have so many styles of play in my locker but before I unleash one, I’ll have to observe my opponent.
Team predominantly used
I do not just select any team at all, I equally do not have a single team I use. The clubs I choose depend on how I want to play and my opposition.
I’m very observant. I read my opponent and devise a strategy to stop them. Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Juventus, and Liverpool are the clubs I often use.
With Liverpool, I play a pacy game to attack more in case the opponent is wasteful, because Liverpool have runners in Salah, Mane and Shaqiri. I decide to choose Juventus if I want to play more centrally, because they have attackers who suit that role, that is, Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo. I have Dybala and Cuadrado to support the attack as well.
Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur have got good defences too. So it depends on my opposition and tactics on the day.
