Defending corners

Is there no way to change who stands where?
I’m sick of FS foden standing front post and not being able to do anything about it, I’ve just conceded 4 goals from corners in 1 match because of him! He’s put there ahead of cr7 or any other of my players than could do something. He’s just a liability and only way to change it is to sub him off

    Use right stick to switch to one of your taller players and move them to the near post. Should be able to do that quicker than they can aim the corner

    It’s easily possible with right stick

    I just select my tallest/best in the air player and move them ahead of the closest opposition player at the front post.

    Try moving the GK closer to the front post too

    Definitely dont try that, a green timed header from a cross is guaranteed to pass the keeper if hes moved

    Usually I concede headers near the front post: my striker(Vieri) is normally edge of the box so I move him so he's my first man. 9/10 times he wins the header. Keeper and defenders sort out everything else normally.

    Only flaw is if your facing FB ibrahimovic; then basically repeat method and pray

    Well in that particular match, I’d select a diff player and ty to move them to cover his player (auba) but by that time he’d already player the corner, he played them all short of the front post by a good 5-10 yards and lobbed them over my keeper into the far corner of the net

    Rush a tall player in there (as mentioned)

    Usually I'd have Perisic guarding edge of box and a squishy marking some huge ST. usually putting an extra player in there helps.

    Some players smash that ball in straight away so you have to be mega quick.

    My CM in 41212(2) always stands near post so I would suggest it is fixed for a certain position to do it all the time. So if you want someone else you need to change your formation or positions or players!
