One of the most important aspects that you’ve got to remember is this year EA Sports have implemented the new feature of running jockey. This means that you can hold down the sprint button whilst holding down the jockey button so that you can run whilst jockeying and stay even closer to your opposition attacker. You need to make sure to not overuse this feature as it’s best to do when wingers are running down the line.
One of the most impact based features of jockeying is that you increase your chance of deflecting or blocking the ball. Whether it’ll be a cross to your goal or a shot on goal, getting these vital blocks in can be match-winners in their own right. So showing a deadly winger down the line and then blocking his way to goal with a firm block will stop the cross and danger from coming into your penalty box which is ultimately what you want to achieve.
Getting the precise timing right with your tackles whilst using this method is most probably one of the hardest things to do in FIFA 15. fear not though, as you can watch our video tutorial and that’ll give you a fair idea of when and when not to lunge in for a tackle. Mistiming them can result in the opposing attacker leaving your defender for dead and creating a goal-scoring opportunity.
It’s best to perform the jockey movement in the latter stages of a match as the opposition is getting very tired and that’s when you’ll be able to not only put in more challenges but also win the ball back more successfully more often. If you would like to do it right from the kick-off then one of the best techniques you can use is jockeying then immediately letting go of the jockey button and then immediately pressing the sprint button which will give your defender a sudden burst of pace and lunge in for the tackle. nine times out of ten he’ll end up winning the ball back with this handy technique as well.
