There are numerous subtle tricks that you need to master if you want to be a decent goalie in FIFA 15! Here are those essential goalkeeper’s secrets:
Placing your goalkeeper
To place your goalie hold left L1 on PS4 to keep goalie in place. Most times it is quite suitable, but when it comes to corners and crosses, manually reposition is highly recommended if it is possible! The last thing you want to do is run around in the area. Some pro goalkeepers hate the L1 function due to script errors so they like to manually reposition themselves using L2. Holding L2 allows you to take smaller steps and to keep his composure.
Angle of the Camera
Change the angle of the camera for ‘Pro’ and it will be much easier this way. The camera is set behind the goal and follows ball position. Pressing select will change the position of the camera from behind the goal, which can be useful when the ball is above in the field. That will be the ideal position of the camera for controlling your goalkeeper.
Goal kicks and blocking
Goal kicks depends on your style of play and If you have a pro striker up front, then it would be an option. If you choose this route, do not apply full power to the kick. However, if you decide to go for wing you may want to apply the full power of the ends to run. Pro Goalkeepers may dismiss more than halfway line. Have you noticed a pro goalie throwing his arms in the air when the ball is in the box? This is because the pro goalie is spam on the pass button. Do not ever do this! This puts your goalkeeper in a state of trance that cannot make a move until a second later.
It is very dangerous!
Corners are tricky
Always stay on the line. Period. Hold L1 down and not pass spam! If you see the ball is crossed to the far post, go L1, hold L2 and positioned at the far post. 90% of the time the keeper fails to clear the ball over five meters, so the best practice is to stay on a line. Be prepared for trick moves and finesse shots. Try to get a good goalkeeper, if you do not have enough gold use Unlimited Free Fifa 15 Coins to get a perfect goalie for your team.
