As the title says, I can't defend, it is tearing my hair out. Whatever I try isn't working, people just walk past me and score. I have tried the tackle button, I have tried backing off and timing the tackle. I have tried getting a team-mate to assist but it always leaves gaps in defence and I am horribly exposed and they score. I have tried the L2 (jostle, is it?), I have tried the x button to press them myself. I'm just useless at defending and it is driving me mad, to the point I am just thinking about selling the game.
I was always good at FIFA over the years, with legacy defending. I only first played online in April on FIFA 16 and although I couldn't defend good either then, I still somehow managed to get to division 2. I was relegated every season I had in division 2, so I'm not one of the best players in the world, but I'm quite good. Or I was. This year I am struggling in division 8. I don't mind losing games when someone is loads better than me, but the players I am playing against always seem to be able to close mine down, and more often than not get their challenge right. I just can't do it.
Please someone help me!
