Skill Moves Guide

In this guide, you’ll (soon) find a selection of tutorials to help you conquer FIFA 20’s new skill moves.

New Skill Moves In FIFA 20

You’ll find all the new skill moves (with star ratings) in FIFA 20 below:

Feint And Exit (3* skill move)

Hold L1/LB and rotate the right stick 180 degrees from left to right or vice versa (three-star skillers and above)

The Feint and Exit is very similar to the Body Feint and is a very effective move. Your player hovers their foot over the ball before accelerating forward in one swift motion which is perfect for brushing past defenders — especially if you’re looking to cut into the box.

Lateral Heel To Heel (3* skill move)

Hold L1/LB and move the right stick left then right or vice versa (three-star skillers and above)

This move is similar to the classic Ronaldo chop but perhaps even more effective. The Lateral Heel to Heel is fantastic for quickly changing direction or finding enough space to get off a shot.

Drag To Drag (4* skill move)

Hold L2/LT then hit a fake shot with Square+X/X+A or O+X/B+A (four-star skillers and above)

The Drag to Drag allows you to cut the ball back with a fake shot but gives you the option to then continue where you were originally headed. This skill works particularly if you want to cut inside with a winger as defenders will likely believe you’re looking for a cross. And on top of that, the Drag to Drag looks amazing when used before a string of other moves.

Flair Roulette (4* skill move)

Hold L1/LB and rotate the right stick forward 180 degrees (four-star skillers and above)
For years, the Roulette has been one of the most used skill moves in FIFA but now there is a fancy four-star version for some added style. There isn’t really a bad time to use this move but the Flair Roulette is ideal when trying to beat an opponent or again when setting up a shot.

Heel Chop Turn (4* skill move)

Hold L2/LT and hit a fake shot with Square+X/X+A or O+X/B+A while holding the left stick to the left or right to perform a Heel Chop, then push the left stick in the opposite direction (four-star skillers and above)

The Heel Chop can now be performed by three-star skillers, but it’s worth saving for players with four-star skills thanks to this new move which adds an extra turn. The second change of direction will completely fool opponents and introduces an interesting mind game when playing online or against friends.

Dragback Sombrero (5* skill move)

Hold R1/RB, flick the right stick back then press R3 (five-star skillers only)
Now for a very flashy move: this skill won’t be successful every time but all those attempts will be worth it for the one occasion you pull it off. The Drag Back Sombrero Flick gives you another way to flick the ball over your opponent’s head, before hopefully unleashing a thunderous volley. This move works particularly well after dragging the ball back with Strafe Dribbling so try to practise that combination.

Strafe Dribbling

Hold down L1/LB and move the left stick in any direction
One of the biggest additions to FIFA 20, Strafe Dribbling could completely change the way you play the game. This new feature is perfect for one-on-one situations as you drag the ball around while keeping it close to your player. It’s particularly effective for holding on to the ball in tight areas or baiting defenders to charge towards you.

Setup Touch

Hold R1/RB and hold the right stick in any direction
Like Strafe Dribbling, this can be performed by any player in the game. The Setup Touch pushes the ball out to give a player a run-up to improve the power of your shot, especially if you use Timed Finishing too. However, the animation is quite slow, leaving little time to actually find a shot. Instead, it may be more useful to fake out an opponent and skip past them when dribbling.
