Which Mertens should you pick — Fire or Ice?

Looking at the stats of each card, we have to say the Fire version — that increases Shooting stats — is more worth it than the Ice card that increases Passing. The Fire version still gives a nice boost to Passing too compared to his regular gold item, but it is more of an offensive threat overall.
