Use Close Control to change direction

You can use R2 + direction before receiving a pass to trigger this specific animation. The ball will stay close to your player and he will quickly change direction with good control of the ball.

This isn't very useful against the AI, but online it can use the opponent's momentum against him, leaving him out of position for a while.

I use this often when I see my opponent does not let go of the Dash button and is a fan of charging my players the whole game.
