It had to happen. In the end, players have discovered a way to always score a goal in FIFA 21, and that only means one thing: the game is broken.
You just have to be compelled to see the big range of repetitions that are showing on social networks and Reddit where this unusual movement that ends in ballooning over the goalkeeper is practically going viral. It is something that will annoy players, and many more players are replicating the movement in FUT matches and online friendlies.
Executing the entire manoeuvre is not easy, it must be said. Besides, if you want skilled players, you need to perfectly coordinate the movement of lifting the ball and shooting at goal. To shoot, you must use the Chip Shot (L1 + circle; LB + B) and let the ball seek the goal.
As soon as the opposing player has made the move to raise the ball and hit it, there is little else you can do. Your goalkeeper will not be able to reach the ball no matter how much you move it, so you have no choice but to get ahead of your opponent’s movement, with the danger that this entails.
It seems to be the perfect place to lift the ball around the line of the large area, and you can hit the ball either in or out of it. Once the ball goes within the direction of the goal, the goal is quite assured. Defending the attacker aggressively could leave you with a foul on the edge of the area or directly a penalty against, so losing your nerves at this move will only bring bad news.
It is obvious that the movement exists, and that the default placement of the goalkeepers allows the ball to always make a goal. Perhaps, a correction in the position of the goalkeepers would fix the error, but it remains to be seen to what extent they can catch a ball in conditions that could truly capture it. EA has not commented on this for now. We can keep waiting for a future update surprises us.
