How are you getting on with FIFA 22? Struggling to skin your defender? Well if so, we've got all the skill moves that you'll need in the game. 

Skill moves might seem a little excessive but adding a bit of flair to your play can give you the edge over your opponents - as well as being great fun. Skill moves in FIFA are ranked by how hard they are too, with some players capable of the flashy, while others can only complete basic moves. 

FIFA 22 Orders open – plus release date, cover, trailer and everything else we know so far

Make sure to check your players' stats to see what moves they can pull off.
