Welcome to our ‘FIFA 2022: What Are Set Pieces?’ guide. Set pieces in FIFA 22, particularly those in the opponent’s penalty area, offer wonderful scoring chances, whether directly or via passing to the forwards.
What are throw-ins?
A throw-in restarts the game from the field’s sidelines. When throwing in, aim for a player who isn’t presently covered or a player who is rushing in. To make the player toss the ball farther away, you may hold down the pass button longer.
What is a corner?
A cursor will show in the opponent’s penalty area before you take a corner kick. After you’ve placed the cursor, use the cross button to change the power. Remember not to kick the ball too hard or you may miss your opportunity to score.
In FIFA 22, a short corner kick comprises a fast ground pass to the closest player, followed by a kick into the penalty area. This kind of corner kick is meant to loosen up the penalty area and locate a space to score a goal. By pressing the modifier (R1/RT), you may have a midfielder run closer for the short corner kick.
What are free kicks?
Choose a player with the best shot power, accuracy, and curve stats. Choose a left-footed player to attack the right side of the goal. When shooting towards the left side of the goal, use a right-footed player.
In FIFA 22, free kicks may be taken in a variety of ways:
- A penalty area cross is taken when a direct shot cannot be scored.
- Short pass: this is how you restart the game near the middle or even the opponent’s goal line;
- Try a hard shot right towards the goal from roughly 18 metres away. First, establish your player’s target and firing power. Taking straight free kicks on goal needs a lot of experience, therefore expect to wait;
- When placing the ball up near to the goal, you may be tempted to try a technical curving shot. To begin, aim away from the opponent’s wall, which is outside the goal area. You may then choose your shot with the right analogue stick (curved shot).
What are penalty kicks?
Penalty kicks in FIFA 22 are always a gamble, particularly if they determine a close match in Division Rivals or FUT Champions. To take a penalty kick, hit the shot button, then hold the direction you want the ball to go.
A modifier or a finesse shot modifier may also be used. If you set the shooting power too high, the player will likely kick the ball over the goal, losing the opportunity to score.
