A goalkeeper's role isn't just restricted to saving shots or catching crosses. What he does after that is just as important. Try triggering attacks from throws and punt kicks and keep opponents guessing by using faked passes.
The following controls only apply when the cursor is on the goalkeeper.
BRING OUT THE GOALKEEPER
The goalkeeper rushes out towards the ball and catches or clears it. If he fails to make contact with the ball, you run a high risk of conceding a goal.
|GK DASH||+ Hold|
|BRING OUT GOALKEEPER||Hold|
"Bring Out Goalkeeper" is only available when the cursor is on any other player but the goalkeeper.
A player with the skill "Offensive Goalkeeper" will aggressively rush towards the ball when it penetrates the back line.
This move is not possible when the cursor is on the goalkeeper.
Hold to automatically adjust the goalkeeper’s position.
BLOCKING / GK TACKLE
Tilt in the direction you want to block the incoming shot, and the keeper will perform a diving block. A GK Tackle will cause the goalkeeper to rush towards the ball in an attempt to control it with his hands.
If no buttons are pressed, the goalkeeper will react automatically according to his saving abilities.
The goalkeeper will control the ball with his feet instead of his hands, and this allows you to quickly transition to the next play.
This does not apply when the goalkeeper cannot use his hands, such as with back passes from teammates.
|GK TRAP||Hold receiving ball|
