FIFA 17: 3 simple ways to utterly dominate every single FIFA Ultimate Team match

YouTuber BorasLegend demonstrates some incredible techniques to help destroy opponents

FIFA 17 may have been out for months but chances are you’re still playing FIFA Ultimate Team.

That’s why we’ve dug out these incredible tips from pro FIFA player BorasLegend to help give you the edge.

Today’s lesson? Three different types of shielding, guaranteed to help you control the pace of the game.

Let’s kick off.

Ground shielding

Ground shielding is by far the most common technique used and is perfect when in the box

This is one of the most controversial aspects of FIFA 17 – given just how effective it is.

Nonetheless, ground shielding is one of the best ways to wind up your opponent and cause them to make mistakes.

Make sure to press the L2 / LT button before the intended player gets the ball.

If you’re under pressure, you can use the left thumbstick to fend off any defenders – perfect for when you’re in the box.

Air shielding

This technique is often forgotten about but it’s a brilliant way to control high balls.

Again, it’s just a simple press of L2 / LT – and then use the left stick to block any tackles.

Shoulder tackle

The shoulder tackle is hardly used by Ultimate Team players but can be devastatingly effective

There’s nothing worse than being knocked off the ball when on a run.

However, if you press L2/ LT at the precise moment another player makes contact with you, you’ll be able to bump them off with a shoulder charge.

It’s ideal for when you’re storming down the flank or clean through but being challenged from behind.

What are you waiting for?

Go forth and conquer.
