Do you want to get good at kicking free kicks in FIFA 17? Do you want to start scoring from set pieces too? Here is a very well done video for you that clearly shows everything you need to know to score a free kick in FIFA 17.
The system has remained substantially unchanged compared to the previous chapters, but there are some small innovations. To score on free kicks, you need to take these factors into account:
- skill of the kicking player
- position of the player with respect to the ball
- loaded shot power
- keys to press
these 4 important factors ALL depend on distance from the goal of the shot.
If you are on the edge of the area (in the video the area is highlighted with the name "curled") then you will have to prefer the effect kicks and then choose players who are stronger in this statistic. You will need to dose the power of the shot well without exaggerating (a notch and a half of the power bar should be enough).
If on the other hand you are a little further away from the area (in the video the area is highlighted with the name "driven") then it is better to focus on power shots and choose players with the strongest shot. In this case you will also have to increase the power of the loaded shot up to 3 bars.
Watch this video which shows exactly how to perform all free kicks (spin, power and various combinations of two or three kicks):
Carefully follow the video that in addition to the buttons to press also shows where to position the player with respect to the ball and how much to load the power bar. Practice a little and soon you too will start scoring a lot of free-kick goals in FIFA 17.
