1. Roulette – FIFA 22

This is one of the most popular skill moves in FIFA as well as in real-life football. During the move, the player spins around his opponent with the ball on his feet, leaving the defender behind. Additionally, the move will be most effective when the opponent runs into the player to attempt a tackle.
