As you know, practice makes perfect, but don’t expect to be scoring a goal every free kick. You still need to master some techniques before you can be confident in your goal scoring abilities.
1. You should run the free weights and score really well, but you should be able to adjust to different situations and positions. You should memorize the different mechanics.
2. If you’re taking a direct free kick, you can position your player and dictate his approach on dead balls. This allows for a wider variety of set piece deliveries. So, you step backwards from the free kick and control your run, choosing from a variety of angles, this could keep your opponent guessing as to where you’re going to place the ball.
3. If your free kick is from a wide position, you can set a target in the area to aim your kick towards. Once you’ve done that, your teammates will react to your placement with runs.
4. Take into account whether your kicker is right-footed or left-footed. If he is right-footed, aim for the left post. If he is left-footed, aim for the right post.
5. Charge up your shot to around the midpoint.
6. If you aim correctly, the shot will curve nicely into a spot where the keeper can’t reach.
