Please Note! Only useful if you get a penalty in game and not effective in a penalty shootout unless for the first one in the shootout only.
Right footed player
1. Aim far right beyond the goal so that your players head turns completely to the right
2. Hold for atleast 3-4 seconds so that your opponent knows exactly where you are aiming
3. While aiming tap the shoot button
4. When the player makes a run to the ball just let all buttons go and put your controller down.
Same process button in opposite directions for left footed players.
I have never missed a penalty since October doing this. The Forum community is very small compared to the whole of FIFA so I don’t mind sharing the tactic with you.
It’s a psychological thing but always works because the community is made up of smart and not so smart people but they forget to think outside the box.
When you aim at the centre then you are mentally telling your opponent that I am going to aim down the middle but I may later change my aim to either side. With this tactic you opponent is concentrating on all three directions (left, centre and right). What we want to do is reduce his concentration to two directions so you have one free spot left to always aim and score.
Now when you aim at a single direction then your opponent thinks you are either going to score in that direction or he is being tricked and you are actually going to go the other way. This tactic diverts your opponents concentration of the centre spot and they are only thinking of left or right.
It’s always worked for me, give it a go
