We’re talking about netting, those beautiful goals that make the crowd go wild. Whether you’re a seasoned FIFA player or just starting out, we’ve got some expert tips that will help you improve your game and have more fun while doing it. So, grab your controller and let’s dive right in.
Tip 1: The Art Of Finishing
Our first tip is all about mastering the Art of Finishing.
This is the key to scoring in any situation. It’s not just about getting the ball on target, but knowing how to outsmart the Goalkeeper and put the ball in the back of the net.
One of the most effective ways to finish is with a Driven Shot.
This is a low hard shot aimed at the corners of the goal. It’s particularly effective when you’re one on one with the Goalkeeper.
To execute a Driven Shot instead of filling up the power bar, you just give the button to shoot a little tap. This will keep the ball low and increase the chances of it finding the back of the net.
Next, let’s talk about Finesse Shots. These are perfect for when you’re in front of goal and need to curl the ball around the Goalkeeper.
To execute a Finesse Shot, you’ll want to hold down the Finesse Shot button while powering up your shot. The key here is to aim for the far post, curling the ball around the keeper.
Finally, if you find yourself with some space in the Box, don’t be afraid to unleash a Power Shot. This is a high risk high reward strategy. But when executed correctly, it can result in some spectacular goals.
To execute a Power Shot, you’ll want to power up your shot. And then, when your player is about to hit the ball, press the button again.
Remember, timing and accuracy are crucial here. Manual aiming also comes into the equation here. So, aim carefully.
Remember, practice makes perfect spend some time in the Practice Arena, working on these shots from different angles and situations. Before you know it, you’ll be scoring goals like a pro.
Tip 2: Positioning
Our second tip is all about Positioning.
Being in the right place at the right time can make all the difference when it comes to scoring goals. It’s not just about being near the goal, but understanding the flow of the game and anticipating where the ball is going to be.
Know When To Stay Away
Sometimes, the best thing you can do as a Striker is to stay away from the ball. This might sound counter-intuitive, but by doing so, you can create space for yourself and your teammates.
This is especially effective when your team is in possession and building an attack. By staying away from the ball, you can draw Defenders away creating gaps for your teammates to exploit.
Know When To Go And Get The Ball
On the other hand, there are times when you need to go and get the ball
This is especially true when your team is on the counterattack or when you see an opportunity to exploit a gap in the defense. In these situations, making a well-timed run to get the ball can put you in a prime position to score.
Well Timed Runs
The key to good positioning is anticipation and awareness.
Keep an eye on the ball, but also pay attention to the movement of your teammates and the Defenders. Look for gaps in the defense and make your move at the right time.
And remember, practice makes perfect. Spend some time in the Practice Arena, working on your positioning and making runs from different angles and situations.
Tip 3: Long Shots
Our third tip is all about Long Shots. These are the goals that really get the crowd on their feet.
But scoring from outside the Box requires a good understanding of when to go for power and when to go for finesse.
Go For Power When In Space
When you have a clear sight of goal and some space, going for power can be a great option.
To execute a powerful Long Shot, you’ll want to power up your shot to three quarters of the power bar and aim for the top corners of the goal.
Remember, timing and accuracy are crucial here.
Go For Finesse From Angles
On the other hand, when you’re at an angle or the Goalkeeper is off his line, a Finesse Shot can be the better option.
To execute a Finesse Long Shot, you’ll want to hold down the Finesse Shot button while powering up your shot.
The key here is to aim for the far post, curling the ball around the keeper.
Power Of The Outside Of The Foot Shots
And let’s not forget about using the outside of the foot. This is a very useful technique in FIFA 23, especially when you’re at an angle to the goal.
To execute an outside of the foot shot, you’ll want to aim your shot at the far post.
Using the outside of the foot will give the shot an incredible curve and dip. This will catch goalkeepers off guard and result in some spectacular goals.
Tip 4: Understanding The Goalkeeper
Our fourth tip is all about understanding the Goalkeeper knowing how they react and position themselves can give you the upper hand when it comes to scoring goals.
Near Or Far Post
One of the most important things to pay attention to is the positioning of the Goalkeeper.
Are they standing near the near post or the far post? Are they off their line or hugging the goal line?
On Goal Line Or In Front Of Goal Line
Recognizing these situations can help you decide what type of shot to use.
For example, if the Goalkeeper is standing near the near post, a Finesse shot to the far post can be a great option. On the other hand, if the Goalkeeper is off their line, a Chip Shot can catch them off guard. And, if the Goalkeeper is hugging the goal line, a powerful shot to the top corner can be hard to stop.
Tip 5: Scoring On The Counter
Finally, we're going to talk about scoring on the counter.
Fast break goals can be a game changer, but they require quick thinking and understanding the qualities and skills of the player you control.
Know Your Qualities
If you're controlling a fast player, your best bet is to go deep and ask for the ball. If you don't have this kind of player yet, you can use FUT 23 Coins to purchase one.
Use your speed to get behind the defense and create a one-on-one situation with the Goalkeeper. To ask for the ball, you'll want to press the appropriate button on your controller.
If you're a good passer, you should focus on setting up the counter. Look for your teammates making runs and try to play them in with a well-timed pass.
Remember, a good counterattack is all about speed and precision. And if you're a little slower but a great finisher, you should stay away at the setup of the counter and just make sure you are there to finish it off. Position yourself in the Box and get ready to receive the ball.
When the ball comes your way, use your finishing skills to put it in the back of the net.
