It’s Tarik here and Welcome to the FIFA 12 Shooting Clinic. I want to answer a comment on my website left by Rob who needs help scoring from short range.
I always say practice makes perfect, but there are also a few things to keep in mind when shooting up close.
1. Lay Off the Turbo
Remember to take your hand off the sprint button before you shoot. This will improve accuracy.
2. Feed your Playmakers
If possible, try to use your best shooter to take the shot. For example, If I were playing with Real Madrid, I would automatically be looking for Ronaldo when I get around the penalty area.
He has a higher percentage chance of scoring. His shooting rating is 90. Use that to your advantage.
3. Use the finesse shot
I rarely meet gamers online who use the finesse shot well. Initiate a fineese shot by holding RB for Xbox or R1 for PS3. This adds a nice curling effect to your shot, which could make it harder to save.
4. Create Space using a Fake Shot
The last tip requires using a fake shot. To perform a fake shot, Hold B then Press A for Xbox or Hold O then X for PS3. You can fool your opponent into thinking your shooting, then you often will be all alone in front of goal with a much better angle.
I hope these 4 shooting tips help. Let me know what you think. Peace
