One EA FC24 expert has worked out how to score the perfect free-kick every time.
The release of EA Sports' newly rebranded game is upon us and players have been trying to find the best tactics to help beat their opponent.
And just as in real life, free kicks are a major part of the game. Whether you are playing Career Mode or Ultimate Team, it is important to give yourself the best chance of scoring from a set-piece.
Fortunately, one expert on Twitter has mastered the art and given fellow gamers a comprehensive guide of how to score every time. Here's how it works.
🚨Free Kick Guide 🚨— The Average EAFC Player (@AverageFCPlayer) October 2, 2023
Left Stick - Aim between the two middle players in the wall.
Right Stick - Outside foot curled (just under the ball).
Short Distance - 3 Bars
Long Distance - 3.5 and above, but not full power!
Works even better with the Dead Ball Playstyle+!
According to @AverageFCPlayer, you must use the left analog stick to aim between the two middle players in the wall, before using the right-hand stick to choose 'outside foot curled' which is located just under the ball.
If shooting from a short distance, you should use 3 bars, and if it is from a longer way out, you should use 3.5 or more, but never full power.
Now all that remains is to choose your free-kick taker. Fortunately, we have curated a list of the top 10 free-kick takers in EA FC24.
First up, and perhaps unsurprisingly is Lionel Messi, with the 36-year-old seemingly more accurate than ever with his set-pieces for Inter Miami.
In second place is Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski, closely followed by Neymar and Antoine Griezmann, with Bruno Fernandes rounding off the top five.
The rest of the list is made up of Martin Odegaard, Dani Parejo, Paulo Dybala, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kieran Trippier.
