EA SPORTS FIFA 14 | Ball Possession Under Pressure | The Boot Room

Darren Cross from Match Magazine discusses ball possession when under pressure in EA SPORTS FIFA 14.

Check your formation and make sure you are playing with a formation you are happy with. This way, you will know where players are on the pitch, and be confident that when you make a pass, there should be a player to receive the ball. If playing against a high pressure player, keep it simple – especially at the back. Keep the ball moving and play the way you are facing if needs be. When the other team chases, they leave gaps you can use to your advantage.

Try out the ground passing skill game to practice keeping possession against high pressure. Think a pass or two ahead if you can to avoid isolating players on the pitch. Use the radar to spot players who may not be visible on the screen or gaps in an opponent's formation.
