There are many ways and styles to score on FIFA 15. Some players prefer short, quick, precise passes, while others use long lobs to get the ball into open spaces. Through balls are also a great way to gain an advantage on the defender that many experienced players use as a form of attack. There is not one, sure fire method that is better than the other but mixing up all of these styles throughout a game will almost certainly lead to victory.

In the coming weeks I will showcase different ways of attack that can help you win even against the stiffest of competition in Online play.

Today we will focus on the Wing attack. It is and has always been one of the most efficient ways for teams to score in the real soccer world as well as in FIFA. Having a good sense on when and how to use such an attack can help your game improve virtually overnight.

A traditional 4-4-2 formation can be all you need to score at a high rate.

First, let’s take a look at some of the strategy that is involved in implementing such an attack. Personnel and positioning play key roes in making this a successful offense. Before kickoff you will want to look at a few things. First off, you want to go with a formation that reflects what you are trying to do on the pitch. Personally I have always found some of the simpler formations will work best trying to execute a wing attack. I almost always use some form a 4-4-2 or 4-5-1. The idea is to have 1 or 2 strikers/forwards in the box, complemented by 4 midfielders. 2 of these midfielders need to be spread out on the wings to be able to play the ball into the box on a cross.Now that we got our formation set, lets take a look at the roster. Although having a tall striker with good finishing ability on your team will help, it is not an absolute must. With that being said, study your team and try to put tall strikers with good scoring skill sets on the field whenever it is feasible. More important in this offense are the wing players. Stay away from defensive midfielders and stick to players that are in their natural position. In a 4-4-2 formation, it is ideal to have 2 CM’s in the middle of the field, complemented by a RM/RW and LM/LW on the wings. If you don’t have players on your roster that reflect these positions, you can go with CAM’s at either wing position.

Hazard (bottom) and Lukaku (Top) are great players to fit the scheme due to their size. However, the same results can be accomplished with lesser players if the skill sets translate.

Now that we got our formation and player personnel squared away, it is time to hit the field and put all of this to good use and score some goals. The strategy pad is a great way to set the tone for your offense and I almost exclusively use an aggressive offense to make sure my midfielders get triggered to run into open spaces. Running a counter attack offense can also be a great way to get your wingers in space but remember not to use it, if you happen to fall behind. On defense I usually go with high pressure as a timely turnover by the other team can lead to a quick break over the flanks.
