On this page of the FIFA 22 guide, you will learn the best and most efficient ways to finish an offensive action.
An effective attack is one that ends with at least a shot at the goal, and preferably with scoring a goal. Your victory depends on how well you are able to create and finish an action.
Through pass - on the ground or a lob
One of the best and most effective ways to finish off the action in FIFA 22 is to make a through pass to a player that goes past the defenders. A through pass on the ground or a lob is one of the best options to open the way to the goal, which usually ends in a one-on-one encounter with the goalkeeper. A through pass must be made when the attacking player is just in front of or in line with the last defenders so that he is not caught offside.
A pass into the opponent's penalty area is a very effective way to finish an action. Even if you don't manage to shoot at the goal, you can count on the ball being deflected for a corner kick or falling under the feet of one of your players. Creating danger in the penalty area may also result in a suicide goal or provoke an opponent into a foul that ends in a penalty kick.
In the penalty zone - different scenarios
Once you have managed to get the ball into the opponent's penalty area, think about how you want to finish the action to maximize your chances of scoring a goal. Pay attention to how many defenders are around you, as well as how the goalkeeper is positioned.
- Classic shot: this is, in many cases, the best and most effective way to score a goal;
- Finesse shot: a technical strike that is best executed from outside the penalty area. This shot is extremely effective when combined with a precise finish;
- Lob: A lob shot is a good option when you are right in front of the goalkeeper who starts diving at the player's feet to take the ball away;
- Passing the ball: If you attack with more players, you can force the opponent's goalkeeper to leave the goal and then pass the ball to a better-positioned player.
