FIFA 20 Free-kicks Guide

Free-kicks had a reasonably significant overhaul for FIFA 20 and was seen as one of their main change for that year. E.A. introduced the ability to place up to three different takers over the ball, make dummy runs, and lay the ball off in a variety of ways. U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Market have talked about it and mentioned this on our website and Twitter pages for the last three years, and it wasn't until the last couple of years, on FIFA 19 & 18, that U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Team really started to see people utilizing this great technique when it comes to taking free-kicks. This was only really started because of the effectiveness of putting a player back on the line but whatever the reason, it's something you should know how to do. Calling other players first, you can draw two players to stand over the ball, and worry about the wall as they will not know who is striking it. This is done by pressing LT/L2 to call your first player, and RB/R1 to call the second player. There is no need to hold this, and one-click will do.



TIP - Firstly, you must know your team well, as it will not show you who is standing over the ball apart from the original taker. Identifying who is over the ball is your first problem. You can then choose to strike the ball with either the first, second, or third player. If you want to hit with the first player, just shoot as you would usually (look further down to see how to score free-kicks)If you're going to strike with the second player, hold L.T. (L2) and take the free-kick you want to hit with the third player, hold R.B. ( R2) and take the free-kick.

Fake Shot and Sending players on runs
You have the opportunity to do a maximum of three fake shots before striking the ball. Running over will not only stop the opposing player charging his wall, but it will also send the faking player on the run. To fake shot, power the shot button and then quickly press the pass button. This will have the player run forward to the ball, but then step over the ball. You can do this three times if you want, to confuse your opponent's wall.
TIP - Remember, if you are planning to fake shot, line the ball up first, as you will have no more chances to alter the direction once you have performed a false shot.

Selecting a man
You can now select a man by flicking the right stick to control. Most players on FIFA 20 will wise up to this and track the runner, but it can be a useful decoy, however. U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Market like to use it for times U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Market think there is no point crossing or we'd prefer to make sure U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Market retain possession. Control a man and move him into space before calling for the ball. This also works with calling a man n short, however, but the position is determined by E.A. and will often put you straight under pressure, which isn't a problem if you know how to do this effectively.

Lay Off
A third option you have is to lay the ball off to one of the players standing over the ball. This will move the ball to the side and can negate the effectiveness of a jumping wall. It is instrumental if you have a player who has a high Shot Power and Long Shot ability – provided they are the man you are passing to.

Ground lay off
To perform a lay off a pass to the 1st taker – hold LT/L2 and tap the pass button, the longer you hold the pass, the more power on the pass.
To perform a lay off a pass to the 3rd taker – Perform a fake shot (explained above) and then hold LT/L2 and tap pass.
Performing two fake shots, followed by a pass, will lay the ball off to a further away teammate.
To pass where you are aiming – Press the pass button to move with your 1st taker
Hold RB/R1 and press pass to proceed with your third taker.

Aerial lay off
You can chip the ball for a volley. Also, you can do this in FIFA, and U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Market don't see many players attempting these which is odd as they look cool and can be very satisfying to score.

1. Before attempting this, make sure the player striking the chipped pass has high volleying ability.
To perform an Aerial lay off to the 1st taker– Hold LT/L2 and tap the lobbed pass/cross button.
To perform an Aerial lay off to the 3rd taker – Perform a fake shot and then Hold LT/L2 and tap lobbed pass/cross button.

2. Our biggest advice is to combine the above options to a single free-kick to make a truly one of a kind free-kick style. This will be very useful to confuse your opponents and stop them from blocking your shots. There are many, many options using the tactics above, experiment with them.

How much power and curve and where to aim?
Please note, for the curled shot, the best players will have curve ability between 85-100. Any lower and they will struggle to bend it around the wall or over.

18-30 yards: Curled shot – round the wall
This is how to score with a right-footed player. To use a left-footed player, reverse the instructions!
Also - Adjust if necessary, as explained, the more curve the further out you will need to aim wider — the further away from goal, the more power, etc.

Right side
Aim the ball just to the right of the last man in the wall (right). Power the bar up to only under 2 bars of energy to just over 2 bars (depending on distance).
Hold your analog stick up and to the left after filling the bar.

Left side
Aim the ball just to the right of the last man in the wall (left).
Power the bar up to just under 2 bars of energy to only over 2 bars (depending on distance).
Hold your analog stick up and to the right after filling the power bar.

Centre
Aim the ball just to the right of the last man in the wall (closest to the keeper).
Power the bar up to just under 2 bars of energy to only over 2 bars (depending on distance).
Hold your analog stick up and to the right after filling the power bar.

18-30 yards: Curled shot – over the wall 
This is how to score with a right-footed player. To use a left-footed player, reverse the instructions!
Also - Adjust if necessary, as explained, the more curve the further out you will need to aim wider — the further away from goal, the more power, etc.

Right side
Aim the ball between the legs of the second man on the outside of the wall (closest to the right post).
Power the bar up to just under 2 bars of energy to only over 2 bars (depending on distance).
Hold your analog stick up and to the left after filling the bar.

Left side
Aim the ball between the legs of the second man on the outside of the wall (closest to the left post)
Power the bar up to just under 2 bars of energy to only over 2 bars (depending on distance).
Hold your analog stick up and to the right after filling the power bar.

Centre
This depends on which side the wall lines upon if they line up to the near post, copy the left side rule, if they line up on the right position, and copy the right side rule. Each, of these, will need tweaking the more or less curve your free kick taker has. Also, you may find you can aim slightly wider on each of these, but note that if you do, it may miss.

Power strike – 30-45 yards
Please note the further out you are, the more difficult it will be. Aim between the shoulders of the last man in the wall (furthest away from the goalkeeper).
Hold LB/L1 and directly upon the left analog stick (Be accurate with this).
Power up to between 3 to 4 bars of power depending on the distance from the goal.
N.B. - (If the wall times their jump correctly, the ball will more than likely rebound off their heads).

Vary your style
Varying the style of your free-kicks is another essential thing to do. In the majority of our games, we'll earn two possibly three free-kicks within shooting distance. Sometimes, you can receive more if your opponent is more aggressive. By varying the style of free-kick you employ, it will make them harder to defend. If you always go for the corner behind the wall, it'll make things so much easier for the defense.

TIP: You must get to know the players in your squad. If you apply 3 bars of power with Paul Pogba, for example, then when you go to take a free-kick, at the same distance and angle with, Marcus Rashford, 3 bars of power will not have the same result as the one you made with, Pogba. Try to learn two or three of the players in your squad, and then you can be a real threat from every set piece.

Hiring and deploying FIFA 20 scouting Tips

FIFA scouting system was completely reformed, and it placed more of an emphasis on scouting. FIFA 15 carried on this trend, making scouting even more critical than it ever has been and EA has built on Career Mode even further, for FIFA 19 and now 20.



The default scouts you start with aren't perfect, very average in fact. U4GM FIFA 20 Coins Team recommend that you get at least one 5, star scout of both types (youth being the other), as this will improve the accuracy and speed of your scouting. The scout's nationality also affects how good they are. For example, a Spanish scout searching within the Spanish region is more likely to be quicker and more accurate than a Russian of the same standard also searching in Spain.
The scouts available to hire rotate nationalities every week, but there will always be one from your clubs' nation, which can be quite handy.

Start scouting any players you have in mind as soon as possible as this will enable you to get a better idea of who to…

FIFA 20 Custom Tactics With Chelsea – The Special Ones

Many FIFA players didn’t particularly enjoy this style of play but nobody can question how effective it was (and still is for some teams). Here is how you can set up your custom tactics sliders if you are looking to play like Mourinho’s first Chelsea side. Firstly, you need to use the FIFA 20 4-3-3 Holding formation.



Build Up Play: Speed – 59; Passing – 59; Positioning – Organised.
You’ll find that to play like this Chelsea side, you have to move the ball fairly quickly. By having these mid-range slider settings, it will allow this quick build-up style. As we wrote, very often the full-backs will make many runs (have high attacking work-rate full-backs to ensure this). It’s important to have your settings on free form positioning because this really affects your three up front. The Chelsea wingers often tucked in and interchanged this position and this would allow both full-backs to make their runs and play high up the pitch. The movement of the front 3 & full-backs will confuse d…
