L2 is your friend. Hold your position with L2, then go in with a heavier tackle once you've gotten in their way and slowed them down.
n.b. i have not played the new fifa
also don't play online against 10 year olds who have all got messi and ronaldo
When the opposition have the ball use the right stick to push towards the player you want to control(turn off auto-switching), preferably a fullback. Then hold down R1(or RB) to use your midfielders to close down while you move backwards. Any time he does a one-two just track the strikers run and head the ball away. Most people can only score by chipping through balls and this completely nullifies it.
then I try and pick up the ball when it breaks.
If it comes down to me, it's L2 and just try and show them away from goal before trying to slide in.
I will very rarely use the standing tackle button unless I'm shoulder to shoulder or something.
Buy a house, have kids, get yourself a Ford Probe, start playing squash.
being needlessly defensive?
