Scoring against an opponent in EA Sports FIFA 17 or any other edition is pure bliss and what’s cooler than you being able to rub it in your opponent’s face by celebrating with a dab? Right, nothing. It’s priceless.

The dab celebration was first popularised in the US by Cam Newton, the quarterback for the Carolina Panthers in the NFL. It gained global recognition following Paul Pogba making it into his signature style after scoring.
The dab celebration became increasingly popular after Paul Pogba made a record-breaking move from Juventus to Manchester United in 2016 and since then everyone has been trying to dab after putting a screamer through the net — in FIFA video game, that is.
England and Manchester United attacking midfielder/winger, Jesse Lingard has also adapted the dab celebration and more than often, the duo of Pogba and Lingard are seen doing that together after either one of them scores.
With the growing popularity of the celebration, gamers across the globe have been keen to recreate it in FIFA and it’s totally possible to pull it off whether you’re playing the game on Playstation, Xbox or PC.
And it’s not just Paul Pogba or Jesse Lingard who can pull off the dab celebration but any player on the roster will be able to do that.
To dab after scoring a goal on Playstation, you need to hold down the R1 button followed by a double tap on the triangle button. Xbox users can dab by holding down the RB button and then double tapping the Y button.
PC users can dab by pressing I button followed by a double tap on the K button after a goal has been scored.
