Is crossing used in D1-3 or elite Weekend League?

It looks like most top players like to cut inside for the short passes, but do any high level players still utilize crossing?

I probably cross too much :D

    It is rare, but when you play someone that knows how to do it, it's lethal. I played someone that absolutely destroyed me a while back. He crossed every time he got the ball, and honestly put 8 in on me.

    I've actually really been trying to work on my crossing game. I switched formations and have been trying to get better at using the various shoulder buttons for different types of crosses, which seems to make a big difference.

    When it comes off, it's definitely a more satisfying way to score.

    crossing with square not so much, but R1-X driver across the box is basically the triple square cross from last year and that's super effective with the right players. need someone with good passing stats to swing it in and someone with good positioning to finish it off

    dude that was a great matchup; you both are really good. @the_boss_gurveer were you aiming for that back post finish with the volleyed goal? I like how @semia172 played a nice technical style with Japan :) You guys make this game look too easy :D

    Yeah but that's the how I like to cross, my crossers and attackers were not of great quality in this match though.

    People don't usually expect a 'slow' player like Zaza to do good in this pace oriented game but whenever I score a few headers or volleys with Zaza then a lot of those send me messages to stop sending the crosses into the box.
    One of the guys got into mic and boy he was furious because of these crosses.

    Semia is a great player without any doubt.

    Always cross the ball when your players are running into the box. Even with short players, you will score.
    I have scored quite a few with Alessandrini.
    Once you stop and then try to cross, GK is gonna punch or catch that.

    Nice nice. Yeah, I’ve been practicing the advancd crossing skills game every time I get on to play, and hopefully that helps my crossing game.

    Low driven finishes are only so fun for so long :D

    I rarely cross but when I do I score most of the time. Maybe once every 10 games or so. As soon as I see bale or cristiano inside the box against a Fullback like alaba /alba /semedo etc I cross it back post. Early crosses work better
