Available for several video game platforms, including the Xbox 360, PC and Sony PlayStation 2 and 3, EA Sports FIFA features 30 licensed leagues, 500 licensed teams and more than 15,000 players. Developed by Electronic Arts, the game gives you control of the world’s top soccer players, and the freedom to perform tricks and fool opponents. One popular trick is the fake shot, used to deceive goalkeepers and defenders. This special move can be performed on every platform, though the buttons used may differ.
1. Gain possession of the ball and move your player — preferably a striker or one of your best players — within shooting distance of your opponent’s goal.
2. Press and hold the shoot button for a few moments so that the shot power bar starts to charge up.
3. Release the shoot button and very quickly press the pass button and move the analog button in any direction. This instruction cancels the shot; the player will swipe thin air but fool opposing players.
