How to Do Ball Rolls

The ball roll is a simple and versatile technique to create better angles for shooting or passing, as well evading tackling defenders as you approach the box. Note the ball roll requires a player to have a two-star skill move rating to perform.


To perform a ball roll, simply move the right analog stick to either the left or right of where your player is facing. If done correctly, your player will perform a sidestep while in possession with the ball and opening up an opportunity to pass or shoot the ball with either the left or right foot (depending on which side you ball rolled it).
