In previous versions of FIFA, I didn't concede many goals from corners but didn't score too many goals either when playing online.
I would defend the corners by holding the shoot button as the ball came into the box. Relying on the game to automatically switch me to the nearest player to the ball I would almost always win the header.
When it came to scoring from a header, I seemed to have a fair chance of winning the header by using the above tactics. A small proportion of the won headers would be goals.
In FIFA 16, I seem to be struggling to both defend and win any header in the opponent's box.
When it comes to defending, I seem to lose somewhere between 30-50% of the headers using the same method.
When it comes to attacking, I don't seem to have any chance unless I use a near post run AND call a 2nd player to the ball (I cross as soon as the 2nd player runs towards me). This gives me a better chance of having 1 or 2 unmarked players at the near post, although the angle is a lot harder to score from.
Could someone provide an insight into the problems with my method?
Is there a better method to scoring from a corner?
