This week on The Boot Room, using the left trigger in defence and attack to improve your game.
Use LT and shoot to initiate a diving header if your player is in the appropriate position. LT is also good for flair shots. These moves are context sensitive depending on where your player is in relation to the ball and the goal. Hold LT when going for a header to get into the air sooner than your opponent. Hold LT to improve your first touch when receiving a difficult ball.
Use LT with the left stick to turn as you receive the ball. Hold LT when you have possession for a slow dribble. This gives your player more control when dribbling the ball, keeping it closer to your feet.
Use LT in defence in combination with shoot or long pass buttons to win 50/50 aerial battles or clear the ball from danger. Hold LT and RT and use the left stick to cancel your player's movement towards the ball -- useful if you think your player is going to chase the ball and kick it out of touch.
Join us in a fortnight on The Boot Room for tips on crossing the ball.
