Triangulations can be deadly

We all know how powerful 1-2 combinations are in this game, but have you tried mastering triangulations?

In this clip, I start a 1-2 with my player, but I change my mind halfway and opt to receive it and pass the ball to a different player further down. My first player is still going for a run, so with a first-time pass he has a great chance to score.

When you don't see enough space to return the ball with the 1-2, see if you have another player nearby who can get the ball instead. I find this happens often with Wingers that have a "Roaming Flank" playing style.

It also helps if players have the "One-touch Pass" skill for that final pass, although I don't think that is essential.
