FIFA 16 Defending Tips: Jockey Movement Tutorial
There’s no doubt that defending on FIFA 16 this year has been made extremely difficult by EA and you’re going to have to be a tight unit at the back in-order to be successful. In this tutorial, you’ll learn the art of the jockey movement in defence which will help you tackle attackers at the right time. Watch the full HD video tutorial below or continue to read on to learn more.
The first thing we need to talk about is the controls and they’re very simple. On the Xbox you to hold down LT without the ball to jockey and L2 on PlayStation. To run jockey you hold down both triggers LT/RT or L2/R2 but it’s not as effective as the standard version.
What you want to be doing is letting the attackers come towards you doing either skill moves or that wiggling movement and then jockeying backwards waiting for the right time to put in a stand tackle to claim the ball back. This is by far the most overpowered way of defending in FIFA 16 and it’s extremely effective.
The jockey movement is also very good at blocking shots or crosses as well and when a winger is at the byline you want to get as close as possible while jockeying and trying to get in the block. You shouldn’t worry about conceding a corner as the main objective is to stop the delivery into the danger zone meaning your penalty area.
More often than not it’ll bounce in your favour and you’ll retain possession of the ball so that you can make the clearance up field. When a player decides to sprint and out do you with pace then you can start running with them but also making sure to jockey when they turn on do any sudden movements.
If you practice with this for a few days you will soon get the hang of it and it’ll change your defensive game forever and you will be a better move improved player as a direct result.
