How to Do Elasticos
An elastico or flip flap is a skill that adds a good deal of unpredictability to your offense on the pitch. It can only be performed by players with a 5-star skill rating.
The elastico is performed by tilting the right analog stick right and dragging it to the bottom left at a somewhat 270 degree angle. The reverse elastico, meanwhile, is done by tilting the right analog stick left and dragging it to the bottom right.
If done correctly, your player should quickly feint into a fake direction to fool their opponent before quickly passing through the other direction.
Tips for Elastico
- It is important to first get a feel for the motion of doing the elastico with the right analog stick. Another way to visualize the motion is to think of the normal elastico as moving the right analog stick to the right and dragging it in a clockwise motion to the lower left.
- The elastico has its uses anywhere on the pitch and can be mixed up with other crafty maneuvers to add even more unpredictability to your approach.
