How to Move the Goalkeeper in FIFA 21
FIFA 21 is available on multiple platforms: Google Stadia, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows (PC).
It is important to know how to manually move the goalkeeper especially when he is left alone to take on the opposing team’s attackers during a game. This is effective for anticipating your opponent’s shots to better perform saves.
To move the goalkeeper at any time during the match, press the R3 button (press the right analog stick) until you hear a click. You will then be able to position the goalkeeper in the direction of where you anticipate the opponent’s shot will be placed.
Keep in mind that you must keep holding down the R3 button to direct your goalkeeper’s movement. Letting go or slightly easing up on the pressure will cause you to lose control of them entirely.
Requires Observation and Prediction to Use Effectively
This method does require a fair bit of anticipation and prediction as you will risk letting the opponent score if you move your goalkeeper to the wrong side. Despite this, being able to control your goalkeeper can save you a few matches, especially if you get used to noticing and reading your opponent’s shooting habits and tendencies.
