Whenever you are playing a soccer game, it’s pretty crucial to know how to defend. Without an excellent defending skill, you can’t stop the opposing team from scoring goals. FIFA 22 is not at all an exception. In this game as well, defending plays a significant role. FIFA 22 has made some changes in the controls of defending. This article will tell you how to defend in FIFA 22.
Controls to Defend in FIFA 22
A good defender not only defends his own team but also creates pressure on the opposition team. To defend in FIFA 22, you have to press L2/LT that will let you stick to the other team’s striker and create pressure on them. You can do it fast by holding L2 and R2/LT and RT. Next, if you want to switch the defender you are controlling, press the Right stick and then turn it to the direction of the player you want to select.
Now once you take your position closer to an opposition player having the ball, you can take it from him by using several methods such as you can press Circle/B to Stand tackle, or if you want to do hash tackle, hold the button for a bit of longer, you can use Square/X for a slide tackle. No matter whatever tackle method you are using, don’t make a foul.
