Starting with a look at how to not get frustrated and how to stay calm: I don’t usually try to frustrate my opponent, I only try to play my game and be as effective as possible. This changes if my opponent tries to frustrate me by watching the replays or by doing annoying celebrations. I just pay him back in the same way. For example, if he does to much possession and passes the ball around in his back, in the moment I get the ball and I am in advantage I make the same thing to him. Or if he leaves the maximum number of replays at a goal scored, the moment I score a goal I do absolutely the same to him
How to cope with high pressure against you
In case your opponent plays a high pressure game, you have 2 options:
– Trust your possession game and the fact that you won’t miss a pass, this is very risky and I would recommend it only to advanced player.
– Do a long over the head chipped pass to your strikers using a defender.

Regarding types of passes you need to b playing to keep possession a mix between short sharp passes and long passes used to switch sides and surprise your opponent.
Dealing with crosses and corners
Always the best option to defend crosses is not to leave your opponent to cross, but as you already know this is not always possible and from time to time your opponent will get in a crossing position.
In order to maximize your chances of winning headers in defence I recommend using air balls for switching and always press the SHOOT button to clear the ball. Some people make the mistake to use the pass button to defend a header, or they press the shot button way to early, wait for the right moment, when you see that the ball is almost in range, and only then press the SHOOT button.
If you don’t want to get in such bad positions( defending headers) you need to try your best with the full backs to stop the opponent before he crosses. In order to do that I recommend using a lot the control pace button in order to jockey around the opponent and wait for the right moment to get the ball.
