Passing may not be as glamorous as having a striker with 97 pace and 95 shooting, but it remains an incredibly important attribute for EA FC 24 gamers. Imagine carving a team apart with beautiful tiki-taka before limping the ball over to your lethal forward to score from close range. Well, that’s the beauty of having the best passers in your Ultimate Team or Career Mode.

In this drill, you will practice beating the defender before passing the ball.

This drill may look difficult, but it’s actually easy, especially if your player is a good dribbler and has at least three-star skill moves.
The easiest way to perform this drill is to use dribbling to create open space between you and the defender before attempting the cross. Note that the highlighted zone changes position every minute.
2. Wide Area Passing
The wide area passing is another drill to polish your passing on EA FC 24. In this drill, you’ll practice passing to a highlighted player while avoiding defenders. The secret here is to pass the ball to other players to open up space and distract defenders before completing your mission, which is passing to the highlighted player. This drill is not only crucial in developing individual players but the whole team.

With this drill, your player’s speed of passing will increase with time as the aim objective is to execute lob passes to designated teammates and score goals while avoiding offside.
Here, you will have to pay attention to the offside rule as it’s crucial to ensure your receiver is behind the last defender at the time of the pass. For those who don’t know how to lob, you can achieve this by using combination of L1 + R1 + TRIANGLE.
