Penalty Kick Tips

So I was in the quarter final of qualifying and of course went to PK's.

The guy saved every one of my shots. (well I got one in, but it hit the goalie in the stomach and flicked in)

Afterwards the guy told me, politely, that he knew where every one of my shots were going because of the way I run....? How is this avoidable? That being said- I think I am about 2-5 on PK shootouts this year.

What do you guys do to "hide" where your kick is going?

    I move the kick taker back and to centre

    Don't forget you can change direction you aim right until you kick the ball

    I normally go low and tomthe sides with finesse

    your player takes a microstep to the left or right if you are holding the controller in that direction from the start. I always start by pressing forward then rolling controller left or right

    Hmmm

    I'm going to start holding left whilst stepping forward then shooting right

    This works for about 2 pens, then good players know you are going the other way. I certainly do it occasionally though.

    This is what I do, 9-0 on pk shootouts this year. Never even knew about the saving techinique, I just try to find a pattern that they have and it works most of the time.
