    Bro I know what you mean. It lost me a big game a couple days ago in the 90th and I was seconds away from a major controller spike.

    It also happens when trying to header the ball back to your keeper.. The players just doesn't react at all

    Agree. You mash pass or clear and the defender chests it down.

    When you hold LT this year, your player attempts to chest control the ball (which is different from previous FIFAs). If you're very used to holding down LT to clear space on headers, try letting it go when you're ready to jump.

    Basically, use LT only until you're ready to win the header, then let go of it and hit A/B/X/Y and your player will jump to head it (and not awkwardly jump up and chest it).

    wise advice @Frankenberry will give it a try buddy

    Jumping up to chest the ball is a nice adjustment from previous FIFAs. Last year, you could lob it up to Ibra, and if you want to control the ball without passing it off to a teammate (by not pressing any buttons while the ball is in the air), then literally a 5'2" bronze CB could jump over Ibra's shoulders to win the header.

    It's the button delay, at least you defender didn't volley it in his own net in the box with nobody around him, just before your centre back tackled your other which cost you a place in the final

    I thought chest control was double maye triple tapping B. Dont know if that is the problem but I havent had the issue that I have noticed

    Hey lads I made thread about this the other day... My only solution so far is to quickly tap the b button,(b b b b b b) not sure how is supposed to be timed but at least they attempt a header
