Giving a good cross is an important part in FIFA. A good cross in combination with an attacker who can head well you can bring a lot of goals. There are different ways to give a good cross: Low, High, to the first post, or to the second post. It is important to know when and how you should use the cross.
How do you give a good cross?
With the left analog stick, you can give the right direction to the ball. Take advantage of this just before you press the button to display a cross. If you play from right to left and front to want to give “up” can you give the left analog stick in three ways direction: to right to give the ball to the near post, to the upper left to get the ball at the far post and upward in order to place the ball in the middle of the 16.
Once you have pressed this button, you can still use the left analog stick to an “after-touch”, though this is not necessarily needed because the effect you want to also add standard is created there. The next choice you have to make is how often you press the cross button. If you click twice, you go for a low ball to the near post, when you press three ajar go for a ball on the ground and if you once press is a result of how long you press (the longer, harder the division) determined which player is the ball using a good football trick.
When you give the cross?
If you rush an attacker who is close to the goal, the player will generally have little room to do anything with the ball and can put less force. A player in this position it’s best to send a cross with a player who is close to the goal as the keeper then has little space to come between them.
The moment you get the player further away from the middle, you can see the ball the best crosses as soon as possible. This allows the defenders have in fact less time to position themselves, the attacker runs towards the ball and this has plenty of time to head the ball or shoot. By paying attention to when your attacker gives up his hand, you can pick the perfect time. If there is a hand up, it means namely that your attacker is ready to cross (you also can give the best direct). In this case, you can use the best of the early cross’ button using button (L1 on the PlayStation 3 and LB on the Xbox 360).
