The Steps

Believe it or not, It’s actually extremely easy to score goals from outside the penalty area on the new edition of FIFA.

1. If you are using a left footed player, you must be positioned on the right hand side of the pitch, and right footed players must be positioned on the left.

Of course you can still score a long shot on the left hand side with a right footed player, but the odds of your shot flying in will be drastically reduced.

2. You will need to take your shot from a specific area on the pitch to increase your chances of scoring.

Imagine the football pitch split into thirds; the area runs along the length of the penalty area, and extends virtually all the way to the start of the transitional third.

3. You will need to use a player with a Long Shot rating of at least 75 if you want to maximise your chances of scoring.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Christian Eriksen are just a few of the players that are capable of scoring a Long Shot in FIFA 20.

4. Aim towards the far post with LS.

.5 Hold R1/RB (activating the Finesse Shot) and fill up the power bar to 75%.

6. Tap shoot again just before your shot, in order to activate the Timed Finishing feature.

Timed finishing is crucial to the success of your shot, as a well-timed click will increase the power, accuracy and whip of your shot. It may take some time to master but it is truly worth it.
