FIFA 21: How To Jostle and Jockey

Heading allows you to pass the ball or even shoot, but a successful jostle can let you take a ball down and do what you want with it.

While the ball is in the air, hold L2 or LT to attempt to win it and get it under control.

Once done, you can hold the same button again and press a direction on the left stick to try and shield it.

Used in the box, this could allow a powerful striker a chance to control the ball, turn, and take a shot - all while keeping defenders at arm's length.
