FIFA 13FIFA 13 - Controls

Below is a table of all the game controls in FIFA 13 for the Xbox and Playstation. Starting in FIFA 12, EA decided not to include an informational packet with each copy of the game, so some players asked us to make our own version for reference. The The Premier FIFA 13 Guide has a HUGE section on controls - not only does it teach you how to execute these moves, you can also see extra tips regarding each control.
