In soccer, a cross is essentially a long pass in which a player pushes the ball towards the front of the opponent’s goal. Crosses are great plays for attempting to set up either a header, a quick shot from a player in the six-yard box, or putting the ball into the path of a sprinting attacker. In some instances, you might also need to attempt and complete crosses in order to complete certain FUT and Career mode objectives in FIFA 22.

If you need some help with performing crosses in FIFA 22, we have you covered. Here’s a look at the controls for crosses in FIFA 22.

The input for a cross is the same one that would be used for a lob pass. If you are using the classic controls, hit either X (for Xbox) or Square to direct the ball towards the front of the next. For the alternate control setup, press either B (for Xbox) or Circle (for PlayStation).

We should note that there are several other advanced cross options in FIFA 22. Here’s a look at the controls for those options:

  • Driven Cross – RB/R1 + X/Square or B/Circle
  • High Cross – LB/L1 + X/Square or B/Circle
  • Ground Cross – X/Square or B/Circle + X/Square or B/Circle
  • Whipped Cross – LB/L1 + RB/R1 + X/Square or B/Circle
  • Driven Ground Cross – RB/R1 + X/Square or B/Circle + X/Square or B/Circle

The button input that you will want to use for the advanced cross will depend on your controller layout. If you are using the classic layout, use X/Square. Alternative controller layout users should use B/Circle.
