You need to have your controller settings set to airballs for autoswitching on defending. Make sure to check our video on defending crosses and corners. All the points are described below but obviously helps to watch the video explaining in detail showing lots of footage.
First off try to stop the cross! Player 3 is running towards the ball as player 4 runs down the wing. He will collect the ball and then try to put the ball ahead of player 4. So the best thing to do with people who love crossing is put a player in the space ahead down the wing to block access.
We are authoritative amateur 1 so to manually change to the apostle amount 2 we charge to flick the appropriate stick in that direction. Once we accept ascendancy of amateur 2 we run him appear the bend banderole bushing that space. Afresh your adversary won’t try the through brawl to the accompaniment but ability canyon it to him. So you will end up with a amateur in foreground of him. Usually they will afresh cut central so you change to the amateur central by afresh flicking appropriate stick appear him. If he still tries to run down the addition authority 2nd man columnist so your apostle abutting bend banderole jockeys him. If he cuts central you now accept ascendancy of the amateur to breach down the play or next pass.
If your opponent does manage to get the cross in here is how to win the header!
STEP 1. Make sure controlling a player away from the area. Best one is closest to the crosser. If you think they are going to fake and cut inside hold 2nd man press and switch to the next closest player. Only do this if your defender inside does not have a striker to mark. So in the example above he has a man to mark and you should not switch to him.
STEP 2. When ball being crossed don’t press anything until the ball is dipping towards the two players. Then press the left stick the same direction the ball is going in away from the crosser and press shoot (don’t just tap it). IN the example above you would hold left stick up. Your defender will try to flick the ball behind him jumping into the striker. If more space he will just clear it out of the box.
