Struggling to score headers. Or win them. CPU scores crosses quite a lot against me (legendary). Most goals I concede against them are off crosses. Any tips? Is assisted or semi better?

    I have the same problem it’s three alternatives on my crosses maybe
    1. Hit the first man
    2. Go past anyone
    3. To close to the goalie
    4. Sometimes I actually get a nice cross but then my player seem to be scared of the ball or something

    Then the opposition counters and either my players are scared of the ball or it’s a perfect cross or the rebound goes straight to their player who scores

    Problem is legendary CPU blocks middle out so much crosses are only option sometimes. Kinda annoying crosses are so erratic.

    I use R2 + cross. Which is R1 + cross as default I believe.

    When I go up for headers I usually use the strength button along with either X or O depending on the situation

    How do you defend a cross? The AI gets their head on everything.

    Head to the ground when you have the chance (L1+R1+O)

    I tried R1 and cross. It fizzes it I now and just gets cleared :'(

    Why do all my crosses get cleared and theirs are locked onto a head. Also I clear and it goes to them. They clear and its goes to them. Argh! This is driving me crazy!

    I usually use the RB cross, you have to make sure your player is in space though, pointless crossing if the box is filled with defenders

    @Jonboyparker try a normal cross but much earlier on. Cross before you get in-line with the box

    I've finally managed to score from a few crosses but one only was a header. The others were crappy volleys that sort of rolled across the line......yeahhhhhh......

    The header I did score was quite nice but my main issue now seems to be actually being able to head the ball.

    I think I'm going to have to put more air under my crosses to get up to the head.

    Also I read somewhere that early crosses are key this year and that's proven to be the case in recent games.

    Have the crosses changed buttons on fifa 19? Last year L2 and square was like a looping cross
