The premier gaming franchise has included the name of Nguyen Cong Phuong as one of those in the game, and the inclusion was performed once he joined Incheon. He has been rated 62 overall in FIFA 19 with his physicality and shooting the best attributes.
His best stats per FIFAIndex are Balance: 87, Sprint Speed: 75, Agility: 74, Acceleration: 72, Shot Power: 67.
Gamers have already begun to use the mercurial striker in the game and are reaping the benefits.
In career mode, using Cong Phuong can be hugely beneficial as an out and out man or a supporting striker and even a false nine. The 24-year-old joins elite ASEAN company with the likes of Chanathip Songkrasin and Neil Etheridge among those topping the charts for players in FIFA 19 from the region.
