The goalkeeper is the backbone of any team's defensive unit, and it's no different in FIFA 23. During a game in FIFA 23, the goalkeeper has many opportunities to get involved in his team's play, so it's worth exploring them all.

Last update: Thursday, October 6, 2022

On this page of the FIFA 23 guide we show how to effectively play as the goalkeeper - how to get the ball away from the penalty area, how to move out of the penalty area, and how to set the goalkeeper manually.

Long and Short Kick

Kicking the ball is the least accurate technique of resuming the game from your own goal area - FIFA 23: Playing Goalkeeper - resuming game, moving the goalkeeper - Basics - FIFA 23 Guide

Kicking the ball is the least accurate technique of resuming the game from your own goal area. When you hold down the button responsible for Cross (square / X), your goalkeeper will kick the ball with a certain force and in the direction you point. When resuming the game in this way, try to aim at a sector of the pitch that is not crowded by opposing players.

Short Pass

Short pass (X / A) is a safe option to resume the match, giving you a better chance of maintaining control over the ball - FIFA 23: Playing Goalkeeper - resuming game, moving the goalkeeper - Basics - FIFA 23 Guide

Short pass (X / A) is a safe option to resume the match, giving you a better chance of maintaining control over the ball. Before passing the ball to any of your players, make sure that the nearby attackers cannot take it from you .

Throwing Ball

A throw (X / A) is a quick and precise way to resume the game right after taking over the ball - FIFA 23: Playing Goalkeeper - resuming game, moving the goalkeeper - Basics - FIFA 23 Guide

A throw (X / A) is a quick and precise way to resume the game right after taking over the ball . Using this move, you can throw the ball at the feet of fast wing players who will immediately start a counter.

Controlling Goalkeeper

The goalkeeper doesn't have to be controlled by AI at all times - FIFA 23: Playing Goalkeeper - resuming game, moving the goalkeeper - Basics - FIFA 23 Guide

The goalkeeper doesn't have to be controlled by AI at all times. Depending on the situation, in FIFA 23 you can control the goalkeeper with the following commands :

  1. Goalkeeper Positioning (R3 + direction) : You can control the goalkeeper through this simple move to make it difficult for the opponent to successfully shoot.
  2. Covering the long post (R3) : after pressing the right analog stick, the goalkeeper will immediately start to cover the long post.
  3. Running out of the penalty area (Triangle / Y) : by leaving the goal line, you can make it difficult for the opponent to shoot and/or to shorten the angle, but you have to take into account that the opponent may try to lob you. It's worth getting out of the goal when you see that the perpendicular pass to the striker is too long or when the attacking player has to pass a certain distance to receive the pass.
