Moreover, as always, skill moves in FIFA are divided into different Star Ratings from 1 Star to 5 Stars. They correspond to their increasing order of complexity. The higher-rated ones are harder to pull off, but they are the more popular, stylish-looking, and effective. Hence, the skill moves are also called star moves, and players of the same star rating or below can successfully perform these tricks.

So check out your favorite players’ ratings before trying to attempt them, or pick a strong team with a couple of 4 or 5-star players. These include Barcelona, Real Madrid, PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, etc. Some of the best dribblers are Cristiano Ronaldo, Mbappe, Messi, Neymar, and Vinicius JR. Of course, there are many others with a 5-star rating.
