It’s called the ‘manual lofted through pass’ – and when mastered, it’s capable of unlocking even the toughest defences.

So, how do you get it?

Firstly, you have to transition from automatic lobbed passing to manual lobbed passing.

Now you’re all set to try it out.

To perform a lofted through pass, press L1 and Y / LB triangle and aim the left stick in the direction you want the ball to go.

Now, because you’ve switched to manual, you’ll have a lot more control over the placement.

Keep an eye on the power bar and aim for the space behind the defenders.

For short range lofted balls, used when in the opponent’s area, you need about one and half bars of power.

If you’re a bit further out, as per the image below, then go for two bars of power.
