Breaking through the defence
Through balls are an extremely important manoeuvre that involves passing into open space for your fellow player to run onto. This helps the player to break free from any nearby defenders looking to intercept the pass.
Crosses do achieve the same effect, but are much harder to pull off, so it's in your best interests to learn how to perform a through ball as quickly as possible.
Also, don’t forget about skill moves! Aside from looking stylish, these help you to slip past opponents with ease if timed correctly.
Change the assist options
You may want to lower, or even completely switch off the kick assists in the settings menu so you can can have full control of where you're placing the ball when shooting or passing.
Don't be afraid to practise in the training mode if you’re not quite comfortable with the new setting.
Choose your best striker!
Before the match begins, remember which of your players is best at shooting. You should always endeavour to pass towards this player to maximise your chance of scoring.
In general, most forwards are good enough to at least shoot on target, but if their shooting rating (SHO) is too low, scoring goals with these players will be nigh on impossible.
An easy little trick
One of the easiest ways to score is to lob the ball over the opponent’s goalkeeper when he starts running towards you by tapping the c button.
Not only is this relatively easy to carry out, it almost always results in a corner kick if the keeper manages to punch it away.
