FIFA 20 Player Instructions

Player Instructions - FIFA 20

Using the Player Instructions in Custom Tactics’ Game Plans, you will able to assign instructions to your players individually on different tactical plans. For example, using this feature you can instruct one of your fullbacks (RB/LB) on what to do on attacking run or interceptions.

To set your players’ instructions in FUT, you can go to your Squad, bring up the Squad Actions list (PS4 Triangle button / XB1: A button), choose Custom Tactics then select Instructions tab. Take note that player instructions are assigned to players only, not to their positions, which means if you substitute a player, the substituted player will have its own instructions. And, do consider a player’s skills and attributes when assigning them some instructions. You player might not be able to handle the assigned instructions properly if the instructions are beyond their abilities.

To assign instructions to a player, you need to select your player from the Instructions screen and choose the instructions from the right side screen. Below is the list of instructions based on the player positions:
