FIFA 21: How To Knock The Ball On

A nice simple move, but one with plenty of utility, knocking the ball on can be done in two different ways.


For one, you can use it when dribbling to allow for a burst of pace to get away from a defender.

Used with a pacy winger, it can allow just enough space to pick out a cross.

You can also use it when receiving the ball, dumbfounding a defender and leaving them in your dust.

While it's easy to do, control-wise at least, it's something that takes practice to master.


You'll need to hold R1 or RB, and move the right stick in the direction you want to go.
