Welcome to The Boot Room. This week Darren Cross from Match Magazine gives us his tips on skill moves that may give you the edge over your opponents. All moves listed assume you are running right. Adjust accordingly depending on the direction you are running.
Turn & Spin (Hold LT, RS Right then Up/Down)
Use around the box when a defender is running parallel to you to turn, spin and get space for a cross or a shot. Spin onto your strong foot if attempting a shot on goal unless your player has a high weak foot star rating.
Heel to Heel (Hold LT, RS Right then Left)
Use to fool defenders and buy some space in congested areas.
Heel Chop (Hold LT, RS Diagonally Left Twice)
Use to shift the ball into space, to draw a foul or to beat the goalkeeper.
Scoop Turn (Hold LT, B, A + Direction)
Use when your back is to goal and a defender is close to you to turn them and take a shot on goal.
Roulette (Hold LT, RS Left and ¾ Rotation)
Use to get your body between the ball and the defender to get past them, draw a foul or even beat the goalkeeper.
Join us next week on The Boot Room for some advanced techniques that may give you the edge when playing FIFA 13.
