FIFA 17 – FINISHING TIPS

FIFA 17 – FINISHING TIPS

Finishing has been improved on FIFA 17 to give you loads more options when clean through on goal! Check out our top tips below...

DRILL IT

One of the biggest additions to FIFA 17 is the Drilled Finish. Power up your shot by holding the shoot button, then tap it again to keep it on the ground!

TEST YOURSELF

Head to the Skill Games and take on the Silver Shooting Challenge. Hit the bottom targets every time by drilling your shot along the floor!

CHIP IT

If the keeper comes off his line, dink it over him by holding L1/LB as you shoot. Keep an eye on the radar at the bottom of the screen to check his positioning!

FINESSE FINISH

Finesse the ball into the corner by holding R1/RB as you shoot. Hit it once from outside the box, but inside the area tap it twice to keep it low!

ROUND THE KEEPER

The best way to beat the GK is with a fake shot. Hit shoot then pass, and change direction using the left stick as you go. It works better when sprinting, but don’t run into the keeper!

TEST YOURSELF

Work on this move in the Practice Arena. See if you can pull it off three times in a row without the GK getting a touch!

ATTACKING INNOVATIONS

You can be more creative than ever before on FIFA 17 – make the most of these ace innovations…

THREADED THROUGH BALLS

Hold R1/RB as you play a through ball to be more creative. Your player will bend the ball around opponents, or use the outside of his boot to pick out a team-mate’s run!

TEST YOURSELF

Work on your passing and movement in the Advanced Shooting Skill Challenge. Can you bag a C grade or higher?

ACTIVE INTELLIGENCE

Your AI controlled players will make intelligent runs off the ball, so keep an eye on the movement ahead of you and take risks with your through passes!

CLEAR WITH PRECISION

Goalkeepers will drill the ball low and hard to start quick counter attacks! Hold down R1/RB as you throw or kick the ball clear.

PASS MASTER

Try to mix up your passing to make sure you find your target. Hold L2/LT to pull out an ace skill pass, hold R1/RB to play it low and hard, or hold L1/LB and press Triangle/Y to chip a through ball!

TEST YOURSELF

Try to complete the Advanced Ground Pass Skill Challenge using skill passes only!
