FIFA Free Kick Tutorial

As a beginner, I always had trouble taking free kicks. It seemed impossible and it took many weeks to perfect it. I always missed the goal by inches or the goalie would simply catch the ball and I would never score. But, after lots of practice, I am almost a pro at free kicks. I will be showing you two different way to take a free kick.

The Dipping Shot (20-30 yards): First select a kick taker that has high curve and free kick accuracy. To check this, press down on RT and view the stats when choosing a kicker for your free kick. Then, you need to aim properly. If he is a left footer, then aim between the second and third players from left of the wall. The next step is power. Put about 1 1/2 bars of power and flick the left analog stick up AS YOU GO TO KICK. DO NOT release until the ball has hit the net or you missed. Practice makes perfect!


The Curve Kick (30-40): Select your player that has high curve and FK accuracy. From Barcelona, I would choose Lionel Messi, David Villa, or Xavi. Real Madrid, I would choose Christiano Ronaldo, Kareem Benzema, or Xabi Alongso. So now, to score from this distance, you can't use the dipping shot. So here is where the curve comes in. If you want to curve the ball to the inside, lie up the first player from the right with the goalie and shoot with about 2 bars of power. As you begin to shoot, Flick the LS to the left or right (whichever way you want the ball to curve.) This way you put the ball up and out of the way of the goalie so it goes in 80% of the time. For this, you might want to use a player with a higher power stat. For example, David Villa. He has 90 power so instead of 2 bars of power, I would choose 1 and 1/4 bars of power. 

Line up the player from the right with the goalie and shoot
