View Full Version : Good Free-Kick Technique
To score free-kicks or to at least make the keeper work, i hold R1, press  till a bit past the middle of the power bar, and while shooting I hold down and the direction you want to curl the ball. I've hav scored nearly 30 free-kicks wiv this technique and i scored a hat-trick wiv becks against ajax - all free kicks. I find that the free-kicks tend to b powerful as well as deceptive (curl). Pls let me know wot u think.
I think it works best around 24m out - d'alessandro is the best free-kick taker.
I agree with your/my technique for free-kicks everyone on the website tells my that the best way to take free-kicks is to hold up while applying curl but i know that they are wrong.
I agree wiv u m8. I'm glad to hear that sum1 else does the same. How many freekicks hav us scored and who is ur fav fk taker?
If you keep practising, you'll soon master the art of freekicks. My bruv is scared everytime he gives away a free-kick near the area against me. I have also scored my tenth freekick wiv beckham a few minutes ago in the master league. Yesss!!
Any1 else wiv a good freekick techique? We can learn off each other.
up until now i have used the up and curl direction technique, but i will definatley try this out.
let u know later.
Does up and curl work 4 u Ashleybrunt?
Yippee - I scored 7/9 freekicks using the method I use wiv one of the tries I missed hit the crossbar. Hopefully I'll get 10/10 next time. U must give it a go - it works well.
I'm shit when it comes to taking free-kicks. I've tried many different techniques but still no luck, only around 1 in 20 of mine use to go in before. So what I do now is I pass it to one of my players in the box and then I pass it back to the free-kick taker. I then move a little to the side (depending on where wall is set) and then I blast it. I've been scoring more ever since I started using this technique.
I'll have a go at this bcoz I like 2 vary my freekicks and I want 2 kno how gud other techniques are. It sounds gud, cheers Harry-Kewell.
I will have a go tonight and let know
Its good if you can get it on target, but the only problem with passing it - is that i find it gets blocked quite a lot. At least you might get a corner which are easy to score off.
isn't pressing R1 the same as holding up when taking free kicks ? i thought they both did the same thing. :S
If you just press up you get a powerful freekick. If you just press R1 you get a powerful freekick, but if you press both you get a very powerful freekick.
What I did is use R1 for power and down+direction of curl to get the ball over the wall and into the net. You have to get the powerbar right though. Vary's with different people.
