FIFA 23 Skill Moves list, including how to do 5 Star Skill Moves

All new Skill Moves and Fake Shots also listed.

Skill Moves in FIFA 23 add another level of control while you have possession of the ball. You can feign fake shots, perform stepovers, and do specific tricks like the Sombrero Flick with 5 Star Skill Moves.

With FIFA 23 adding FUT Moments, you'll also have to perform specific Skill Moves in order to complete challenges and earn Stars, which can then be used to purchase FUT packs, and other items.

Whatever you plan on using them for, you can check out the tables below to see a list of all Skill Moves in FIFA 23, including new Skill Moves, and every 4 Star and 5 Star Skill Moves available to players who can perform them.
