How to Get Into FIFA 18 For Free on PS4 and Xbox One

Oct 31,2017


FIFA 18 is a game all about margins.

Losing a game in the 90th minute, but fouled on the edge of the box? If you do not know your way around a free kick, you will lose the game ... but if you do, you may be able to get a dramatic goal and grab yourself a little point, or force extra time.

But how to take free kicks on FIFA? Do not wonder any more about it, as Goal takes a look at the set-piece mechanics. There are several ways to take a free kick on the game, and you do not just need to get it up and over the wall!

If you have got players with high curve, such as Christian Eriksen or Kevin De Bruyne, and you only need to be slightly aligned with each position, and then gently kick the left side of the club back to the target, then curling the ball around the wall is relatively easy. Two bars of power should do it!

You can also dip the free-kick but it is riskier; aim at the wall and use the left stick to clamp one and two bars of power.

If you want to push the ball under the wall, aim at the position between an unsuspecting defender’s legs, and hold L1 / LB and shoot, with one bar of power, while pushing the left stick upwards.

Trivela free-kicks are the flashiest of the flash, as it will see a player using their outside of boots to try to curl the ball home. You will need a player with high free-kick accuracy, and aim for just outside the post. Move your running, use the correct stick, make your player fit the ball and near the post. Shoot with about two power bars and point the left stick to 45 degrees and above. If you take your right foot from the left hand side, you need a right foot player, right foot left foot player. Follow the same steps and hold L1/LB for a power variation of the free-kick.

A knuckle free kick is also possible, but you will need some power! Use the left stick to aim for the far side of the goal and hold L1 / LB with three bars of power on your shot. Hope it will fly in, making Cristiano Ronaldo proud.

You can also use the L2 or LB to call the second player, if you fancy it, then you can dummy the shot. Fake a shot, with X and A or circle and X. Aim at the second player, and send a through ball towards them with Y or triangle. If it works, you’ll leave the defence dumbfounded.

It cannot be stressed enough, however, that practice makes perfect, and utilising skill games is vital. Doing that could mean the difference between a win and a loss. You can buy fifa 18 coins on to play the game online.
