Nintendo World Report has posted their preview of FIFA 08.
"After flirting with gesture controls, EA has decided to map passes to button presses. The A button executes a short pass and the B button will deliver a through pass. Players can throw the ball in from out of bounds by simultaneously raising the remote and Nunchuk above their head and making a throwing motion. Players sprint by holding the Z button and can make specific directional passes by tapping the d-pad. Holding the C button and hitting B will execute a lob pass while holding C and hitting the A button twice will perform a one-two pass. If you want to kick an arching chip shot you hold down C again and make the kicking motion with the remote to try and finesse the ball into the goal."
