Pro Players Tips to Improve Your Skills in FC 24

If you have ever watched pros play, then you must have noticed how easy they make it look. From defending to attacking and even just passing, everything works out for them. Unfortunately, EA Sports FC 24 has proven not to be everyone’s cup of tea and many are struggling to master the intricacies of the game.

So, are you looking for ways to improve your gaming? Worry no more because we got you covered. FC 24 can be conquered by learning from the pros and here are some of their tips to help improve your gaming:


Just like in real-life football, a good defence always wins. So, if you want to be a force to be reckoned with, learn how to defend. Below are tips from the pros to improve your defending:

1. Keep your centre-backs in position – One of the biggest mistakes you can make when defending is pulling one of your centre-backs out of position. By doing so, you create space for your opponent to release dangerous passes and eventually score – something you don’t want them to be doing.

2. Run back with a midfielder – In order to ensure the centre-backs are intact, you need to run back with one of your midfielders. With the midfielder chasing the ball, all the defenders will be in position and it will be very difficult for the opponent to find their desired pass.

3. Use the jockey function – There is no way you’re going to defend properly in FC 24 without using L2 or LT button. When jockeying, the defender puts itself in a position where it corners the attacker and can easily intercept any pass. The good thing about using jockey is that you can defend superbly even at high speed.

4. Tackling and sliding should be your last option – How often do you see pros make a tackle or slide recklessly? Well, there is actually no need of making a risky challenge when you can just jockey. Use tackle or slide button as little as possible and if your find yourself in a position where you have to use one of them, ensure you time perfectly.

5. Second man press – The second man and second man press are back in FC 24. You need to press R1/RT and a green arrow will appear above the player,after which pressure will automatically be applied to the player with the ball. The best place to use second man press is in the midfield. Do not be tempted to apply it when inside or outside your box because it puts your players out of position quickly.

Build-up Play

If you do struggle to retrieve the ball, why give it away cheaply? Here are some tips that the pros use during build-up play:

1. Stay composed – One of the most important things when playing is to always keep calm. By staying composed, you won’t find yourself making hurried decisions that will cost your team.

2. Know the strength of your players – Each player has their own attributes that determine their performance on the field. It’s up to you to know what each of your player on the pitch is best at. Do not force that long ball with a player that no passing trait. Similarly, do not try skill moves with a centre-back.

3. Pass when it’s safe – When building up play, one of the most important things to do is safe passing. So, even when under pressure, do not just pass the ball without having a clear vision of your player. Also, if you play a pass, the direction of the pass should be the direction your player is facing.


Scoring is one of the easiest things to do in FC 24, so long as you know how to do it. Here are tips for attacking in FC 24:

1. Do not play too monotonously – There are two main ways to attack in FC 24 – through the centre and via the flanks. For you to be successful, employ both options on the pitch. There is no way you’re going to score several goals by using only one way. If you use the flanks for your first attacks, ensure you play through the centre and are likely to find your opponent off guard. This might be difficult to put in practice but with time you’ll be good to go.

2. Use skill moves to beat defenders – Over the years, skill moves have been essential when attacking. They help you beat defenders and from there you can release that dangerous pass or simply strike.

Some of the most overpowered skill moves in FC 24 that are actually easy to do include drag back turn, ball roll drag back, flair rainbow, step overs and short cancel. To learn more about these skills you can click here.

3. Trigger runs – For you to create passing options when attacking, make use of L1/LB button. Hit the button immediately after passing the ball and the player will run in front. As a result, you’ll have options of passing in the final third.

4. Have patience in the final third – Finding the right pass in the final third is crucial to scoring. You may be tempted to unleash that thunderous shot from distance, but how sure are you it will go in? As long as you can get into your opponent’s box, be patient and you’ll see an unmarked player to do finish the attack.

5. Do not force it – If you can’t break the defence, don’t force that pass or shot. There is no need of taking that risk the get caught on the counter. It’s that simple!
