Running with and without the ball
You can move your player with the cursor keys. Your player will run slower with the ball. While running you may sprint with the "Shift" key. Sprinting depletes stamina very quickly. When your stamina is finished you will not be able to run and will have to rest to regain stamina. In the game there are two game modes, Pro and Normal. Running in Pro mode slowly drains stamina but in Normal mode running doesn't drain stamina. Sprint drains the same amount of stamina for each mode. You can hit the ball slightly in front of you by releasing the "Q" key while the bar is red and before yellow. This is a good tactic to move faster with the ball.
While closing down on a player with the ball you may perform a "Slide Tackle" with "A" key. Chance of making a foul is high with slide tackle, be careful when you use this. Performing a "Slide Tackle" from behind the player will have a high chance of causing a foul and a card, if performed from the side the chance of a foul is less, performed at the front of the player has the least chance of creating a foul. While without the ball you can "Soft Tackle" with the "D" key. This has a least chance of creating a foul than "Slide Tackle". Performing a "Soft Tackle" from behind the player will have a higher chance of causing a foul and a card, if performed from the side the chance of a foul is less, performed at the front of the player has the least chance of creating a foul. While running use "CTRL" to start defensive stance, while in this mode it will increase your chance of blocking a pass or shot. When making a tackle while (with "A" or "D") in defensive stance the chance of making a foul is drastically decreased.
With "S" key, you can perform a "Short Pass". The longer you hold the pass key the further team mate the pass will goto. You can through pass with the "Q" key. You can set the direction of the pass with the cursor keys while holding "S". The same applies to when passing the ball with "Q" and "A". For example while running right you can pass down. You can long pass with the "A" key to a team mate. You can first time pass the coming ball with the "S" key. You can pass the ball with the header while it’s in the air with the "S" key.
You may shoot with the "D" key. Shot power is determined by how long you hold the key down. The harder you strike the ball the less accurate the shot becomes. Depending on your position and distance to the goal will change your chance of scoring. You can learn where the best place to shoot from is, while playing the game. Depending on your formation position, your chance of scoring is changed, strikers have a higher chance than midfielders and defenders, midfielders have a higher chance then defenders. While you fill the power bar you may direct the shot. As the power bar fills an arrow will appear under the player which shows the direction the shot will go. With this you may target the corners or the centre of the goal. Aiming at the corners of the goal will decrease the chance of the goal keeper stopping the ball but also its harder to shoot at the corners of the goal. While shooting players may pull back to create a "Lob" this is good for catching goal keepers rushing off there lines. You can bicycle kick by pushing the "D" key while your back is towards the goal. While the ball is in the air you can make a header with "D" key. You can perform first time shots by pressing the "D" key at the right time with an incoming pass. This shot compared to normal shooting will give a higher chance of scoring.
Freekick, corner and throwing
Your camera angle will change when you are using a freekick, corner or throw. You can adjust your direction with left and right cursors. When taking a free-kick you can shoot with the "D" key, "A" for long pass and "S" for short pass. Depending how much you fill the power bar, will determine how far the ball goes. Throw in can be made with “Q”,”A”,”S” or “D”. depending on how long you push the key will determine how far the throw is made. While taking a corner you may make a long pass with "A" or "D", depending on how long you hold the key will determine how far the cross is made. A ball can be made along the ground with the "S" key, depending on how long you hold the key will determine how far the ball will go. Penalties is taken with the "D" key.
