TOP 3 Crossing Tips for FIFA 15

Early Crosses
 

Early crosses can be used when your strikers are not yet in the right position. The early cross should be executed right before the streaking player enters the box. This strategy is most effective when your opponent is using a formation that has less back row defenders, which causes wider lanes in their defence.

The main thing with early crosses is the timing while tapping Left Bumper / L1 Trigger. It takes quite a bit of practice because a second too early, or a second too late, may lead to your player being offside or the defenders catching up with you. This tactic is most effective when you have a quick player going against a slow defender.

Buy More Time Before Crossing
 

You have to be wise when timing your crosses; do not just cross it for any reason. If you don’t see your players making a run, then do not cross the ball. If your attacking player is in the box, then take your time and wait for him to get into position and try to see what exactly the defenders are doing. Learn and become comfortable on the sidelines.

Double Tap
 

While the cross is in the air, it is important to smash on the shot button twice to get your player airborne for the header. Headers rely heavily on power, so on your last time pressing the shot button try to hold it for at least one second. Be sure to also choose your corner, or else your header will end up in the goalkeeper’s hands.

Compared to FIFA 14
The crossing era is over. Professional gamers are no longer able to exploit the standard cross like previous years.

Situations
Situation 1: The most effective place to cross is all the way down the sideline, almost on the edge of the box, if possible.
Situation 2: When trapped in the corners, the standard cross can be used to put the ball in the box.

LOW CROSS

Compared to FIFA 14
The low cross has become less effective because of how slow the wind up is.

Situations
Situation 1: Playing the ball on to a shorter striker near post.
Situation 2: The receiver of the low cross should not always look to score. Sometimes if you do not have a strike at goal it is best to pass the ball in the opposite direction.

  1. Hello Rodrigo I am the sort of player that likes to get up the wings and either cross or cut inside to shoot. I have been trying the 442 and 433. The 442 is good but the 433 I find the striker can be a bit inconsistent. Any idea for my second formation. Thanks

  2. I have found nearly everytime I try a normal cross, the ball ends up being a big massive cross – going over everyone in the box to someone outside the box at the far side.

    I have had some good success using the high through ball as a cross
