Pro Evolution Soccer PS2 Football Skills
PES PS2 Attacking Control
|X – Normal pass||Basic ground pass to a teammate.|
|☐ – The shoot button||This is a very versatile button. Holding towards the goal as you strike the ball, |
will make the ball travel faster and with more accuracy.
|△ – Through pass||This pass should be used when teammates make forward runs in behind the opposition defense. |
There is an element of skill required to make this pass effective.
Timing is crucial.
|O – High pass, Crossing||Chipped pass to a teammate, more liable to interceptions.|
|R1 – fast dash||Less control of the ball but more speed. Only use this when you have a clear path in front of your player.|
|L1 – Slow dash||Even slower than normal speed. This enables your player to turn sharply, hold off opposition players, and dribble better. Good for tight spaces.|
|L1+X – One – Two||By pressing L1 and X, your player will pass to a teammate and begin to attempt to run in behind the opposition defense.|
|L1+△ – Chipped through pass||Useful when there are a number of defensive opposition players in front of you and threading a normal through pass may be too difficult. As with the normal pass, this also requires good timing.|
|L1+☐ – a dink chip shot||In which the player will attempt to just dink the ball up and over the goalkeeper. The shot tends to go up more than forward. Bear in mind this shot is best for when you are close in on goal.|
|L1+O – a direct cross.||No matter where on the pitch you are, this command will attempt to put the ball into your opponent’s penalty area. Highly effective for counterattacks.|
|O+O+O (Tripple O)||A cross along the ground at speed. Good for smaller players who are running in behind a tall defense.|

|X||is often referred to as “press“, or “pressing” |
(marking, putting pressure on the opponent).
