Get ready to crossing in FIFA 15

There are a bulk of things you can do afore admission that can addition your affairs of converting crosses into goals. Firstly, accomplish abiding that the aggregation you’re arena as accept got players that will clothing a appearance of advancing that’s focused on crossing.

For reasons that will soon become clear when we move on to tips two and three, I use fast, skilful wingers with good dribbling and crossing attributes. I also play them on the same side of the pitch as the foot they’re dominant with, as this enables me to deliver accurate crosses quicker than if my wingers were inverted because I don’t need to check back before crossing.

Because of the type of cross I use the most I don’t need a giant striker leading the line, but physicality can be a useful asset for this style of play so if your forwards have got a bit of strength then that’s a bonus. Ideally your striker or strikers will also have enough pace to get beyond a defence, even if that’s just acceleration to make space over short bursts, and of course the heading and finishing ability to put the ball in the back of the net.

If you’re using a FUT or Seasons team with players that have all those things, your final job before heading out on to the pitch is to choose a formation that will help you create the maximum amount of crossing opportunities. Personally, when I want to cross regularly I pick the wide version of the 4-1-2-1-2, a 4-3-3 or the 4-2-3-1 wide, but the formation you’re most comfortable with will be fine as long as it has wingers and at least one central striker.

With that all sorted it’s time to focus on what you can do on the pitch to boost your chances of turning crosses into goals.
