FIFA 17: Skillfully Use Applicable Shots In Different Scenarios

Shooting across the keeper, long shots, finesse shots on the edge of box are all strong. As well as just placing it low in corner with a small tap of shoot button. Keepers now save lots of shots with their new animations so if you are up against a really good keeper you will find scoring harder.


Shot Preparation
To have the best chance of your shot going where you want your player needs to be ready to shoot and moving a little slower in FIFA 17. It’s just like real life you can’t shoot as well if off balance, facing wrong direction or being hassled etc. With driven shots using weaker foot isn’t usually as bad as when trying to finesse. More on finesse in the next section. Try to steady your player before shooting by tapping left trigger (LT or L2) on its own just before shooting. If being hassled when running a tap of the right bumper on its own will stop your player instantly and face goal. Then you can get your shot away as the defender continues running. If running at pace hit shoot button while the ball is a little bit in front of your player. For higher accuracy and control try to move the ball to the side of the players stronger foot and nudge it into a little bit of space ahead.
Finesse Shooting
Press RB/R1 and shoot button to do a finesse shot. This means the player will shoot with the inside of his foot and curl the ball into the corner. The key to finesse shooting is knowing which foot the player uses to shoot with! Easy for players you know such as Messi left foot, Ronaldo right foot. The reason this is important is because a player trying to shoot using finesse with their weak foot will usually fail to score. So if you are playing any game of FIFA know your players. Usually people use left footed players as the right striker and right footed players as the left striker. They then have more angles on their side of the pitch to shoot from. Good places to use finesse are one on one with keeper and the edges of the box. You can also add aftertouch to really curl the finesse into the corner.
Driven Shots
In FIFA 17 these are harder but still effective with better players. Especially those with long shot trait. When using a driven shot you need to decide on power against accuracy. Just tap shoot twice and your shot will be medium power which should keep it low. Experiment with power as everyone has a different touch pressure wise on the pad. As a guide look to use less than half power in the box and up to three quarters outside the box. You will find driven shots are really effective shooting at the near post. So if the keeper is standing slightly to the right of the goal aim left stick to the right of the goal.
Long Shots
In FIFA 17 same as 16 you need players with high shot power or long shot trait. So look out for them and get them in your team. To keep the shots down hold the left stick towards goal just after releasing shot button. Or away from goal to make the ball rise. Also need to slow down in space and press shoot then let go of everything. Players with long shot trait outside the box are a big weapon to have. You will score lots of long shots from outside the box with the right players.
