FIFA 14 Skills Tutorials, Moves Tricks and Combos Guide


You can be the best FIFA 14 player in the world mechanically, but if you can’t win your match while at the same time showing up your opponent with a few flashy moves, then what’s the point?

EA understands this, which is why they’ve included numerous new moves that will have you dancing around your football like a butterfly. This does not mean, however, that the old and much-beloved tricks are gone from the game. That would simply be silly.

This guide will tell you the combination of button presses and joystick moves you need to make in order to use these tricks as the ultimate form of humiliation against your couch buddy.

FIFA 14 Skills and Combos Tips

The ‘Heel Chop’, ‘Scoop Turn’ and ‘Turn and Spin’ are quite effective on the wing. You might also want to only use the ‘Ball Roll’ and ‘Heel to Heel Flick’ if you’re trying to beat the keeper. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using the ‘Rainbow’ on him.

If you’re especially fond of skilling, then try to position your best 5-star skillers down by the wing, as it’s easier to do so there. You might even consider putting left footed players at the right wing, so that they can cut the enemy defenses using skill moves and shoot using the better foot.

‘Roulette’ and ‘Heel to Heel Flick’ are two of the skill moves that are most effective in one-on-one face offs.
