When playing a match in the FC 24 video game, dribbling is essential. In FC 24, you won’t be able to score until you carry the ball and pass your opponent. The better you dribble, the easier it will be to control your game.
Basic Dribbling Moves
To become a pro player in FC 24, you must first master the dribbling controls. The following is a list of basic dribbling manoeuvres and controls in FC 24.

As for basic dribbling, you need to be good at these moves:
- Carrying the Ball (L stick)
- Skill Moves (R stick)
- Protecting the Ball (L2/LT)
- Fast Dribbling (Holding R2/RT)
- Controlled Sprint (R1/RB Hold Down + Direction)
To carry the ball and pass your opponent you can just use the L stick. Using the R stick will also help you to do skill moves. Familiarizing yourself with the skill moves will also help you perform the dribbling very well.
The initial step in dribbling is to guard the ball (by pressing the L2/LT button). Sprinting (when moving, hold the R2/RT button) will also help you pass your opponents. Slow dribbling (by holding the L1/LB button) is sometimes necessary to create extra space for yourself to take a shot or pass the ball.
Do More Skill Moves
More skill moves may also be necessary for successful dribbling. Get to know all of the talents and get your fingers used to using them. Keep in mind that the skill movements are classified based on the players’ star moves.
Have More Dribblers in Your Team
The player with the higher dribbling attribute (DRI) will dribble better. Try to have at least two players with a high dribbling rate on your team if you are playing Ultimate Team. Otherwise, choose your best available dribblers in your team for the positions where you need to dribble the ball more often.
