While the FIFA series has long been under fire for supposedly copying and pasting its new relases, FIFA 17 makes some significant changes to tried-and-true formulas. We go over some of these changes in our FIFA 17 review. One of the most significant changes is that FIFA 17's set-pieces have been re-written. As a result, scoring on a free kick is a little different than what you might be used to.
With a little practice and a certain technique, you can still score on nearly every free kick you go after. We'll help you with that, and we can also help you with all your other questions regarding team-building and scoring in FIFA 17.
1. Take into account whether your kicker is right-footed or left-footed. If they're right-footed, aim for the left post. If they're left-footed, aim for the right post.
2. Aim the kick in the space between the rightmost or leftmost defenders on the wall.
3. Charge up your shot to around the midpoint.
4. Hold up on the left stick to add spin to the shot.
If you've aimed correctly, the shot will curve nicely into a spot where the keeper can't reach it.
