FIFA 20: Free Kicks Tutorial ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Needless to say, FIFA 20 is one of the most anticipated games of the year yer again. There are tons of new features such as new modes, players and more, which will definitely be very interesting for many players.  We already reviewed the different editions of this years' FIFA, so be sure to read it in order to get an idea of what to expect.

That said, unless you bought any of the fancier editions, you will be allowed to play the game from the 27th of September. This means that you still got some time to check some things about the gameplay in order to be ready whenever it gets released.

Having said that, we decided to take a look at Free Kicks because let's face it, one of the most beautiful goals in every FIFA game before this one was nearly always scored from a Free Kick. Unfortunately, performing proper Free Kicks is definitely easier said than done, especially in the latest versions of the FIFA series. Of course, this depends a lot on whether you will play on a PS4, Xbox One or PC but still - all of the platforms are hard.

Let's take a look at the PlayStation 4  and Xbox One Free Kick taking. After all, they are probably going to be the platform's choice for most players out there.

Choosing the player & Adjusting your run-up

The first thing you need to do is to choose a proper player to take the free-kick. Just scroll through your players' list and see which one has the best rating in order to get the job done. Once you make up your mind, hold down the R2 Button or RT for Xbox in order to select the player you chose.

Choosing the proper player is very important because even if you are the best FIFA player in the world if your chosen player sucks at free-kicks, chances are that you will not perform well.

When you finally choose "the one", the next thing you need to do is to adjust your run-up angle. You can do this by using the right analog stick. Just move it around until you think that it's enough. There are a couple of different methods to choose from such as default, straight, or the so-called "side-run-up".

Aim and Power Up your shot

As you know, FIFA 20 features a new Shot Indicator which helps you to see where will the ball go too when you shoot. However, if you add any spin to it, the indicator will not take it into consideration. 

When you are ready with your direction, the next step towards your successful shot is choosing the right power of it. You can do this by pressing O for PS4 and B for Xbox One. Similar to the previous FIFA games, if you hold it longer, you will add more power to it. That said, it will also add more variance to its direction, so sometimes it might be worth to use some extra power.

Adding a spin to your shot

After you choose your power, use the right analog stick in order to determine the spin of your shot. There are a couple of things which you can do here:

  • Low Driven free-kick - you can do this by pressing the stick DOWN and then UP
  • Topspin - this is trickier because you need to flick the stick from DOWN to UP but only in a straight line
  • Knuckleball - flick the stick from UP to DOWN
  • Curved Free Kick - this is definitely the hardest one to perform. You need to flick the analog either left or right very smoothly

The Time Finish Feature

For those of you who played FIFA 19, you will already know this because it was added then. In order to use it, you need to tap two times the button that you are shooting with whenever the player is about to shoot. It's kind of hard to explain it but basically, if you time it right, you will be able to score a pretty breath-taking goal.
