FIFA '11: Every special skill and trick in the game

The trick stick. What's it good for, eh? After all, if there's one thing that looks worse than accidentally passing the ball to your opponent, it's trying to be clever and accidentally passing the ball to your opponent. Fortunately, FIFA 11 has many tricks to learn – almost all of which are useful. But how can you know where they might be useful if you don’t know what the options are? Well, we've recorded ALL of them in video for your eyes to ingest. Then possibly replicate, like that girl out of Heroes.

Which one do you use most? A step-over while sprinting before a quick direction change to switch inside? Or how about the two-footed kangaroo hop from standing with R3? Let us know what works for you (and what doesn't) in the comments. Then we’ll know what to expect when we meet you online. Mwahahaha…

    I think the trick at the end of the video is the only one that I can do because the trick system is too complicated

    I still can't figure out how to take a ridiculous dive and roll around on the turf like I've been shot... help!

    Wonder if i can pull these tricks off playing on my keyboard :S

    I'm not playing this again till they patch the player growth. I only really use tricks on the wing to get past full backs, works half the time.

    What's the point of showing the moves if you're not going to bother to show how to do them?

    It surprises me how many kids I play that all they do is pick Barca/Real Madrid and then just try and trick their way past my whole team. I then soak it up, wait, win the ball and counter. I rarely use skill moves and favour Manual play and try to recreate the beautiful game with silky passing moves. When I lose games it is usually to players that do minimal skills as well.

    I will probably use the last one most. I like my games simple like Sensible Soccer. All this trickery is just too complicated for my simple brain. I suppose when i go online and do not use this stuff i am going to lose harder than usual.
