FIFA 11FIFA 11 - All Skill Moves

Below is a table of all the possible skill moves in FIFA 11. Remember that pretty much every skill move requires for the left trigger to be held down, without it your player will just dribble normally if you are moving the right stick. These controls are the same for both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation, although on the Playstation the trigger you want to use is L2. Note that just these core moves are not the only tricks you can do, you can combine them however you want to create your own unique skill move. Please note that many of these skills can be done with either foot, so they have two versions, which are done using opposite sides on the analog stick. The skill moves in red are skill moves that are new to FIFA 11 from previous versions. The skill moves in blue are skill moves that are not necessarily new, but have a different control in FIFA 11 than they did in FIFA 10.

Note that the FIFA 11 version of the series continues the 'Star Rated Dribbling' system. In this system, players are ranked on a 1-5 scale of stars, with the players having 5 stars being able to perform every skill move and players with just 1 star will only be able to perform the simplest of skill moves. Check out our 5 Star Skills Player List to see a comprehensive list of every pleyer in FIFA 11 capable of performing 5 star skill moves.
