But how can you fake a shot in FIFA 23?

How to Fake a Shot in FIFA 23

Currently, you can fake a shoot on FIFA 23 by pressing Circle (PS4/PS5) or X (Xbox), and then, right as you are about to shoot the ball, selecting a direction and pressing X (PS4/PS5) or A (Xbox). Is important to point out that, in order to successfully perform the move, we recommend that you make use of the best overall players in the game, as they will have a higher chance of actually scoring after performing it, as well as more control of the ball.

With that said, the basics of the fake shot can also be used to fake a simple lob pass, which can be done by pressing Square (PS4/PS5) or B (Xbox) and then selecting a direction and pressing X as you are about to hit the ball.
