    FIFA 23: defense guide, all controls

    In football it is essential to have a good defense for the counterattack and to ensure that no goals are conceded, and EA Sports knows this very well. For this reason also in FIFA 23 have decided to implement a whole series of new features to make the defense more efficient and effective.




    • Manual player change: to change player and select a new player, just press L1 (PlayStation), LB (Xbox), L (Nintendo Switch) + direction
    • Icon change: Press the right analog stick for more precise defense control
    • Tackle and shoulder-to-shoulder pressing: this is the most immediate way to defend in FIFA 23, to execute it you have to hold down Circle (PlayStation), B (Xbox), A (Nintendo Switch)
    • Hard tackle: this maneuver is definitely more risky since it can cause a foul, and therefore must be used in extremis. Just press Circle (PlayStation), B (Xbox), A (Nintendo Switch) twice while holding it down the second time
    • Instant Tackle: This is a quick tackle that can prevent a potentially dangerous action. Press R1 + Circle (PlayStation), RB + B (Xbox), R + A (Nintendo Switch)
    • Slide Tackle: A tackle that can cause a foul, so never do it behind the player and aim the ball. To do this, press Square (PlayStation), X (Xbox), Y (Nintendo Switch)
    • More decisive slide: it is a more violent slide and follows the same reasoning as before. Press the buttons R1 + Square (PlayStation), RB + X (Xbox), R + Y (Nintendo Switch)
    • Quick recovery: in case you miss the target or want to get up immediately, just press Square (PlayStation), X (Xbox), Y (Nintendo Switch) immediately after the slide
    • Sweep: Immediately after retrieving the ball, use it to remove the danger from your penalty area. Press Circle (PlayStation), B (Xbox), A (Nintendo Switch)
    • Tactical Sweep: For a more precise sweep, just press R1 + Circle (PlayStation), RB + B (Xbox), R + A (Nintendo Switch)
    • Containment: this method allows you to move the player used towards the ball and then make him maintain a super-defensive position. To do it, just press X (PlayStation), A (Xbox), B (Nintendo Switch) twice and hold it down the second time
    • Team containment: the same thing as before but performed by the whole team, to do this you just need to hold down R1 (PlayStation), RB (Xbox), R (Nintendo Switch)
    • Shadow defense: a very effective method that will allow you to follow the opponent's action without leaving too many free spaces. Hold L2 + R2 (PlayStation), LT + RT (Xbox), ZL + ZR (Nintendo Switch)
    • Goalkeeper exit: a dangerous action that could lead to a lob, but if you manage to surprise the opponent you will be able to stop a shot or a dangerous action. To do this, just press Triangolo (PlayStation), Y (Xbox), X (Nintendo Switch)
    • Goalkeeper area interception: to get the goalkeeper out on a cross or any volley you can press Triangle (PlayStation), Y (Xbox), X (Nintendo Switch) twice while holding it down the second time
