How do you score corners?

I haven't scored from a single corner this FIFA. It seems that the keeper punches/catches every cross that's inside the box. Anybody have any tips/tricks? I've tried a variation of in swingers, out swingers, curve, no curve, tried all of the set piece tactics, nothing seems to work.

    triple tap it to the top of the box, call a player short and then pass it to the top of the box, call a player short and try to dribble to either get another corner, a pen or a goal, crossing from a corner is nearly useless this year

    I usually cross to the near post. Success rate really depends on who the game puts there for me. Had one team in FUT Draft and the game would put Laporte at the near post. I'd say I easily scored 1 out of every 3 corners with that team. Wish there was a way to dictate which player was automatically positioned at the near post

    Hit and hope the keeper doesn't get there before your player. I've scored maybe 10 in 9 seasons.

    by far my favorite way is to fire a long pass to marchisio or vidal sitting outside the top of the box, longshot across keeper is either a goal or bounces dangerously back into play

    That is precisely why I quickly switch to my striker and run him all the way back to cover the players at the top of the box

    I power up to 3 bars, which will take it out of the keepers reach, then I head it back into the 6 yard area and hope for a volley.

    I power it up 1.5-2 bars and aim towards whoever is at the near post. I score most frequently this way.

    yup I do the same on D, I don't know why everyone doesn't do this. even good D1 players like 2/3 don't mark that guy


    if someone is correctly marking at the top of the box I like to pull a guy like I'm gonna do short corner, then if the other dude marks him also actually fire one into the box because there's more space from the D being pulled out of place

    - Guy with good cross and curve
    - Crossing from right the middle to the edge of área (right on PK place)
    - Fast select the header (maybe a bit of spam on player change button)
    - Head it. Players with Aerial Threat or Power Header will turn it to 60%+ the chances of goal.

    The theory sounds great. However this don't work certainly not 60% maybe 10%. fifa 16 corners are horrendous.

    Short corner every time or play it to book on edge of box for a shot

    Give it to Ozil at the top of the box and finesse that ish. Finessing across the body to the opposite corner causes some really pretty goals.

    Most effective for me. Also throw in short corners and three bars towards the middle so keeper can't get it

    call a player with L2/LT and use first post tactic, he comes and brings a defender with him. My opponent thinks im going to do short corner, I press the crossing button till 2 bars poiting foward.
    Usually one of my CBs is there tio head it in.

    Love spraying out to the dude lingering just outside the box for a scorching volley.

    scored 2 in probably 1000 attempts, but still

    So easy to stop. Don't know why almost no one chooses to defend the players at the top of the box

    I'm not trying to fake a short corner though as I don't know what they are
