Crossing the Ball
I've read the rules a couple of times but I still can't make sense of how to cross the ball.

You get a player into the corner and then a forward player (CF or whatever) into the penalty box (or 9 spaces if a CF or Heading player) and then what? Lofted pass I assumed but that never seems to work....

Can anyone explain to me?
Thanks

You should click on the highlighted tile on the opposite side of the penalty zone.

In this guide's images it's a blue square: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1301010308

One more question about crosses. Sometimes the closest defender (se) intercepts the cross even if he rolls a small number like 8. What is the cross factor number that is being compared with his head play?

Crosses are weird in that intercepting defenders roll against the target die rather than the pass die. It can be confusing at times...

Not only defenders but attackers as well. Just imagine you roll the dice against passer. Your heading ability should be higher than the passer's Pass attribute. That would be really weird.

Kos could you check my question? What numbers are being compared when the first defender interceps cross. Forward head play is not the case yet. Because he is on the next line

The skil of the defender who tries to intercept and the crossing number are compared. If the defender rolls more than the crossing number, he will intercept the cross despite all other rolls

[...]that's why I said you need to understand the checks on this... It's really nicely explained in the footballpedia... First you do the check of your pass against the cross factor, in this example you roll on a base 15 against a check on a base 40... If you fail there is no more check for this very action, the ball will end on the field on the other side or out of bounds.
If you pass, then the head players will do their check, they'll use their value above their head ( 30 for yours and 25 for the def ) and will need to beat the previous cross factor result ( the roll on base 40 ), if they do pass it, they connect to the ball...
It solved in the order of the pass... So if your forward fail the test, then the defender can connect to the ball and head play it away. If both fail the ball will end on the cross tile. If your forward pass the test and connect to the ball, his result will be then tested against the GK roll ( based on ctrl + playing out ).

There was a picture of his situation attached to it...

But for your situation, regarding your question, what's applying more is the combination of :
- If you pass, then the head players will do their check, they'll use their value above their head and will need to beat the previous cross factor result.
- It solved in the order of the pass.

there are 8 squares when you can cross, each of them around the sides of the box. It's easier to cross from nearest squares, but also from tiles near byline
