How to do a Cross in FIFA 23

Much like with a Through Ball, the control inputs for a traditional Cross in FIFA 23 are quite simple and only require one button. To perform a Cross in FIFA 23, simply hit X (for Xbox) or Square (for PlayStation) to pass and move the ball towards the center and in front of the net. This is for the Classic control configuration, though. If you prefer the Alternate configuration, hit either B (for Xbox) or Circle (for PlayStation).

Additionally, there are a few advanced Cross pass that can be done in FIFA. Here’s a look at the controls for these:

  • Driven Lob Pass/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

Knowing how to do a Cross is important for a few reasons. Besides this move being a good weapon if you are running out of room or are looking to catch an opportunity to score in front. Crosses are also important for completing Objectives in Football Ultimate Team. In past years, accumulating assists via a Cross have been required for some FIFA Objectives challenges.
