    Fifa 11 - Tutorial: how to take free kicks

    It's time to get dangerous on set pieces.


     


    One of the most daring dreams of the millions of virtual footballers who crowd the fields of Fifa 11 is to learn to score from set pieces, perhaps with a nice shot just below seven, in full "Del Piero" style. If you are one of them it is your lucky day, read this guide carefully, do a lot of practice and the results will not be long in coming, guarantees Resources4gaming.

    Although there is no way that will allow you to turn 100% of your set pieces into goals, with this guide we will provide you with all the useful tips to improve your technique and make sure that the free-kick goal is no longer a pure question for you. of "chiulo", but a trick to be performed successfully as frequently as possible. It begins then.

    NOTE: The following guide is written referring to the keys of the Xbox 360 pad. In the following table we indicate which keys correspond to the Playstation 3 pad

    PUNISHMENTS FROM THE LIMIT OF THE PENALTY AREA

    Kick this type of free kick when you need to hit the red area indicated in the following image:

    2) - LOW DIRECT SHOT
    If you can see a corner of the goal not covered by the barrier, you can try to kick "straight to straight" trying to get the ball to pass low to the side of the barrier. There are many chances that the ball will be deflected by the players crowding the penalty area, but if the ball does pass it is a difficult shot for the goalkeeper to block, so at worst you will have a ball rejected right in front of the goal or in corner.
    How to do it: aim (inside the door) at the corner not covered by the barrier, hold LB and then simultaneously press B + left analog stick up. Release B as soon as the power reaches more or less in the middle of the bar (depending on how far you are, try it out). LB and the analog stick are released as soon as the player hits the ball.

     

    2) - HIGH DIRECT SHOT - EXAMPLE GOAL
    It is similar to the low one but in this case we will not worry about the barrier because we will try to get the ball over it. As you can see in the example video the ball goes straight (with no effect to curve) and lowers near the goalkeeper
    How to do it: aim (inside the door) at the corner furthest away from the goalkeeper, simultaneously press B + left analog stick up. Release B as soon as the power reaches more or less in the middle of the bar (depending on how far you are, try it out). The left analog stick is released as soon as the player hits the ball.



     

    2) - EFFECT SHOOTING (TO TURN) - EXAMPLE GOAL
    Unlike the two previous types of punishment, this time we will also be able to aim outside the goal, the ball in fact in this case will curve and go into the net thanks to the return effect. Here the "Curve" (effect) attribute of the player taking the free kick becomes very important. To successfully execute these free kicks you will need to use strong players in this regard, such as Sneijder, Cristiano Ronaldo or Van Persie. It is clear that it is possible to score even using less strong players than those just mentioned, but obviously the higher the attributes related to the player's placed kicks, the more likely you will be to score.
    How to do it:
    with a player kicking right, aim outside the goal with respect to the right corner of the same or aim at the opposite corner with respect to the point where the goalkeeper is placed (as in the example goal). Hold down RB and then simultaneously press B + left analog stick diagonally left-up. Release B as soon as the power reaches more or less in the middle of the bar (depending on how far you are, try it out). The left analog stick and the RB button are released as soon as the player hits the ball;
    with the player kicking left, aim outside the goal from the left corner of the goal, hold down RB and then simultaneously press B + left analog stick diagonally right-up. Release B as soon as the power reaches more or less in the middle of the bar (depending on how far you are, try it out). The left analog stick and the RB button are released as soon as the player hits the ball.


     

    PUNISHMENTS FROM 3/4

    Kick this type of free kick when you need to hit the red area indicated in the following image:


    1) - SHOOTING FROM LONG DISTANCE
    This shot is identical in all respects to the DIRECT LOW SHOT discussed above. The difference is that you will be shooting it from much farther and consequently you will have to load the power bar much more (about 3/4 and even more) to get the ball up.
    How to do it: aim (inside the door) at the corner furthest from the goalkeeper, hold LB and then simultaneously press B + left analog stick up. Release B as soon as the power reaches more or less 3/4 of the bar (depending on how far you are, do some tests). LB and the analog stick are released as soon as the player hits the ball.
