How To Convert Penalties Everytime
We wanted to do a little tutorial on how to score penalties on FIFA 14 every single time you take one, and this is what we’re going to be covering today. When the referee points to the penalty spot and awards you with a spot-kick, the last thing you want to do is end up missing it, especially if it’s a crucial one and ends up costing your team the game.
This kind of circumstance is about to change, as we narrow down and teach you step-by-step on how to convert them whenever you’re awarded one.
It might come across as obvious but as we’re covering this as a step-by-step guide, we need to point it out. The first thing you must do is pick the best player that has the best penalty stats in your team that’s on the field of play. You can find this out by pressing the RT button on the Xbox 360, or the R2 button on the PlayStation 3. A hover down menu will appear showing you the full list of players and their stats at taking penalties, you should then choose the one who has the greatest statistic.
Once you’ve identified who your best spot-kick taker is going to be, you should select him to take them every-time from the main menu so that you don’t need to keep changing it every-time you go into a match.
For the next step, you need to make sure that when the red bar is going sideways from right to left, and left to right, that you press the shoot button when it lands in the green centre. If you get this wrong, then the player will sky the ball into the stands and you’ll miss the opportunity of converting. Make sure that you get it in the green highlighted bar, and that’s the minimum that’s required in order to be successful at penalty kicks.
When shooting, you must make sure that you get the yellow bar to three quarters of the way up, no less and no more. This will be a perfect shot with the accuracy maintaining, and the power also being maintained. If the gauge goes up to far or too less, then you’ll either put the ball over the bar or develop a truly weak shot. Get it to just over halfway to be successful all the time.
When using the left-stick to move the direction of the ball, try to point it in a diagonal way to the top left or right, by doing this you for approximately one second, you will score penalties each time you take them. The goalkeepers can never get to these kind of shots and they’ll only be saved once in a blue moon.
The Fake Shot Run-Up
To perform the fake shot run-up, just before the player goes to strike the ball, you will need to press the shoot button once more. The only disadvantage of performing this skill is that there’s a high risk of missing the penalty kick. There’s no way to score these types of goals every-time, but if you get it on the green bar and get the power gauge up to halfway, then you’ll be in with a chance of putting the ball in the back of the opponents net.
