FIFA 21: How To Do A Lofted/High Cross

With some FUT challenges requiring players to score from crosses, this one is worth getting to know.


This is essentially the same as an early cross, just taken from a different angle.

These are ideal when you've beaten a full-back on the wing, and are ideal for crossing to the back post.

From there, your player receiving the ball can nod it back across goal, or take a shot for themselves.

While it's easy to do, it's something that takes practice to master.


To pull it off, simply press the L1 or LB button on your controller and then the cross button (by default, that's Square on PlayStation and X on Xbox controllers).

Hold the buttons longer to send the ball longer, and aim deep - or towards a target man if you have one.
