FIFA 20 Skill Move Controls List For PS4 and Xbox One

Here’s how to pull off every single skill move in FIFA 20.

Knowing how and when to use skill moves in FIFA 20 can mean the difference between victory and failure. Each skill move has its own input controls, which means you’ll need to memorize the ones you want to use in order to effectively pull them off while playing. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of every skill move in FIFA 20, alongside the controls for each one for PS4 and Xbox One. We’ll also highlight some of the new skill moves that have been added for FIFA 20.
