I saw him the other day against Sporting Cristal. Glad to see him live after many years. He is still a pretty smart striker.

He always was a classy striker in my eyes. I remember him in the Paraguay NT, also in his days in Bayern, then his time in Blackburn. He was very complete with great technical assets, it was sad that injuries kept him away from the field for a long time. Always a delight to watch him play.

Do you think he deserves more Heading? Wins most of the balls disputes by air, in general we can say he is all round great using the head. Btw I gotta remark it's pleasurable how he catches the ball, he'd shown perfect yellow recent matches.

Edit: Maybe S18 - Heel Flick adding would fit, tries frequently to do it, I think vs Cerro he tried two times and make succesfully one, both with first touches.

Explanation by KONAMI: "Improves the players ability to shoot and pass off high balls."
Explanation: Makes the heel shot easier and improves accuracy and frequency.


And, one part of the playstyle of Roque consist of pivoting deep to touch the ball, raising teamwork could make him track back a bit?

Yes sir, just like wine.. the more I watch of him at the stadium, the more I appreciate his technical abilities.. I mean the guy has played 15 years in Europe, you realize his movements off the ball, his touches, the way of using his body, He's clearly in other level, even at his age He could be realy useful for NT
These are the gifts I made of his Poker yesterday in the derby against Cerro, He totally owned them
First one, great definition:

Second one, again heading against Amorebieta, great placement and without jumping:

Third one, with his left foot and maybe a poor reaction by Carrizo :lol:

My man it's crazy, wishes to keep playing for 3 years more or so. Now he just stated he's interested to play in NT, seems that playing for Olimpia brought his confidence back.

So yeah, also he raped Cerro as no other player ever had, definitely Er Roque :geek: :lol:

Yeah, he always was a great striker imo, but when he was in his best moment in Germany and England, he always got injuried. I watched him live against Sporting Cristal in a Copa Libertadores and he still classy af, great technique, great aerial game and overall a pretty damn smart attacker.

He's literally destroying the league, such a great striker.

- 8 consecutive games scoring
- 16 goals in the last 8 matches

Tbf, some of his numbers could be even better. I'm liking the way he's using his 1st touch, really class.

Roque always had an amazing first touch, I remember classy technique by him in Bayern.Roque best version was in Blackburn when was nothing but monstrous , imho he showed to be a worldclass striker,but he injuried again when he joined City. :cry:

This is a great example of world class technique by roque, he never strugles when it comes to control a ball:

And I truly believe classy players like him never lose their ability to show worldclass technique. ;)
