While pressing L1 will switch player to the nearest one to the ball this may not always be the best option. In FIFA 19 you can flick the right analog stick towards the player you want to control, this is much better as it gives you more options.
Control the Ball:
Try to avoid heavy first touches that make you lose control of the ball by pressing L2 when you recieve the ball. You can also use L2 when dribbling with the ball to keep possession close to you.
When you are attacking the opponents goal pressing 'Up' on the D-pad twice will get your teammates into the opponents box which can make a real difference when you cross the ball.
To perform a driven shot press L1 + R1 + Shoot. You are virtually guaranteed a goal if you charge it up and shoot from close range. You should always consider this shot for one on one situations with the goalkeeper and for hitting volleys.
It is advised that you avoid purchasing Gold Packs as the Transfer Market is often saturated with Gold Cards which makes them more or less worthless for trading.
