How to Score on Penalties and Free Kicks
Scoring on a penalty is relatively easy, but it takes a bit of finesse. Wait for the mark to hit the green center of the gauge, then tap (don’t mash) shoot. While your player runs up to the ball, hold the stick in the direction you want the ball to go.

Scoring on a free kick is somewhat more difficult. You will want to aim the camera at the wall of players, looking for a gap between the heads of the players. Power up your shot to between two or three bars of power depending on your distance, and when your kicker starts running to the ball, hold the left analog stick up. The ball will then dip and should go into the net.

Finally, if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to stop a penalty as a goalkeeper, stay to the middle of the goal and either flick the right analog stick to the right or to the left depending on where you think the kicker will try and put the ball. As with stopping real penalties, there’s some guesswork involved, but you should at least have a fighting chance.
