FIFA 16 is lots of fun as you can learn to play in just a few games but taking a penalty, which looks easy, can be very difficult as it usually doesn’t go the way you want it to. You may take the worst shots, wasting a good opportunity. The majority are soft and to the middle, so many players just let the goalkeeper sit there for an instant save.
Penalties happen regularly in FIFA 16 as the referees don’t make the smartest decisions. We often see them call a foul when the team has the chance to keep moving the ball or a penalty when your opponent is barely touched. These happen a lot in Ultimate Team.
To take a decent kick, all you have to do is get some power in and keep the stick pressed to the side you want. Don’t keep it pressed throughout the kick as it will be a guaranteed miss. Just get some power while pressing the stick and let it go. You can also chip it for a beautiful score, but don’t try that on Ultimate Team unless you see your opponent moving the goalkeeper to the sides. And make sure you select the player with the best penalty stats.
