A normal shot is performed by pressing just the shoot button. A typical shot can be taken from far or near the goal and it’s quite accurate to reach the goal when it’s well targeted.
Time Your Shot (Timed Finishing)
Timed Finishing, a new shooting mechanic that lets you time your shot and this will help you to shoot more accurately and score from tight angles that would not be possible to score from using classic shooting style. You’ll need to hit the shot button twice to accomplish this. The key is the amount of time between each tap, which is why it’s named “Timed Finishing.”
The key in performing this technique to pace your shots and score goals is exactly timing your second tap. It’s possible that tapping it too soon or too late will make your shot worse. With the FIFA Trainer turned on, you will see a coloured bar over your player’s head with sliders. Your second tap should be right when the sliders hit the green zone in the middle. If you successfully unlock a Timed Finish, you will see a short message above the bar that says, “Great Timing!”.
Timed Finishing can be applied to any open-play attack, including headers, volleys, finesse shots, and even bicycle kicks.
Low Driven Shot
A low shot is a typical shot with a low power that is fired on the ground to reach the target. A low shot is slightly slower than a high shot, but it has a better chance of hitting the back of the net. This shot is usually useful on one-on-one situations with the goalie where you need to slowly roll the ball into the goal.
Chip shot is a form of short kick that lifts the ball high in the air in order to pass the keeper or defenders and land in to the goal.
A finesse shot is a subtle and refined shot that emphasises precision over strength. Finesse shots are curled and executed using the inside of the foot in order to putt the ball into an unreachable part of the goal.
Flair shot is a fancy and powerful shot which has less accuracy but got more power to defeat the goalkeeper.
A ground shot taken from a free kick which rolls on the field in order to go below the defence wall when the defenders are jumping up or go around them to hit the goal.
Shooting Speed, Strength and Reaction
Holding the shot buttons controls the speed and strength of your shots. The longer you hold the button, the more strength you are going to put on the ball. The quicker you press the shot button, the shorter reaction your player will take to kick the ball. The more power you give to the ball, the higher your ball flies in the air.
