play like… saint-maximin!

HEAD UP You’ll notice that when ASM carries the ball, he almost always has his head up! That allows him to find space to run into, or look for a team-mate in a better position. Set up a dribbling exercise around cones or any other object, and try to look at the ball as little as possible! BE BRAVE If you want to become a sick skiller like Saint-Maximin, you need to be brave and accept that sometimes you’re gonna give the ball away! The best way to avoid making your manager annoyed is to make sure you only skill in the opponent’s half – and when there isn’t an easier pass on! BRILLIANT BALANCE Running with the ball obviously means you’re gonna get closed down, but Saint-Maximin uses his balance and core strength really…

fifa 20 centre-backs to sign!

MATTHIJS DE LIGT PIEMONTE CALCIO No other centre-back has higher potential than the Netherlands defender, so he’ll grow into the best CB in the world on Career Mode! The only problem we’ve found is his pace – or lack of it – so we’d recommend training up his sprint and acceleration stats early on! WILLIAM SALIBA SAINT-ETIENNE Play your cards right, and the teenager can grow a huge 14 points on Career Mode – he’s got top-quality potential! Like De Ligt, he’s a tall, towering centre-back with little pace, so it’s defo worth putting some training hours in on sprint practice! LEONIDAS STERGIOU ST. GALLEN Don’t be fooled by Stergiou’s starting rating – he’s 57 on FUT and 63 on CM, but can grow into the late 80s! If you’re starting a campaign with a lower-league club, this…
