When did this become a thing?
Every sweaty boy I’m playing against is doing it.
I remember when PSG scored a goal like it IRL last year and everyone was saying Messi was a god for doing it, but apparently in FIFA literally any player can make the same pass and get their team a goal from the kick off.
I’m talking about this new thing that everyone seems to be doing where they pass the ball backwards from the kick off and then do a quarterback style pass to a player who is running in on goal and is free to score. It is almost impossible to defend against.
Old school…back to 17 and 18…!
Nice I’ll be trying that 😂
Yes had this against me - some successful some not.
Explain to me slowly the exact way this is done 😂
The defensive line will freeze and watch the ball sail over their heads while your striker runs onto it. I've used it a few times in desperate situations.
edit: Here's a video of it since I'm crap at explaining things.
Why thank you sir.
Doubtful it gets a patch so the mentality is
always going to be "If you can beat them, join them"
Mind you, i e had a variation of this happen to me where he didn't pass back, he passed sideways and then passed it to his forward (Bale in this instance) and there was nothing i could do to stop it. It's absurd this is allowed.
Of course if you can nick a Goal why not ?
When push comes to shove I’m all about the win 😂
The amount of players that just run at me from kick off is unreal and that’s in high divisions.
Nothing apart from actually defending...
If you pull back a cb or CM it's literally never working.
But yes you have to manually select one and manually run him back.
Just be aware of it. It's very easy to stop unless you don't expect it.
Cut back goals on the other hand. I can't stop. Anybody able to give solid advice on ways to stop them.
I use the double tap man mark technique and still can't stop it. The ball always finds its way through to somebody in the middle for easy goals.
