'Power Kicks' is a new feature that will be added to eFootball 2022.
The Power Kicks add a 'meta' dimension to shooting and passing but be warned, you will need a good amount of time and space to pull this off.
Power Kicks can be activated by holding R2/RT and then choosing your input.
A normal pass/shot/cross will be green on the power gauge, however, a power kick will turn the gauge blue.

We saw the below teaser revealed on 15 July 2020.
Konami has announced that eFootball will be released on Thursday, 30 September.
PES fans will be now be wondering, will eFootball have the rights to the same clubs as PES?
Well, we think so.
With Konami recently adding Italian clubs Atalanta and Napoli to their roster, we shouldn't see too much change in the licenses.
Neymar becomes PES ambassador
The official eFootball Twitter account, has announced that Neymar Jr has become the newest ambassador for the eFootball series.
This also means that Konami has secured the full rights to Neymar Jr in eFootball.
EA Sports has secured a partnership with Paris Saint Germain until 2024, which means that they will have the full license to the players, kits, badges, team name etc.
However, with Neymar becoming an eFootball ambassador, we could see Konami change its Cover Star strategy.
We believe that Neymar is now the front-runner to become the eFootball Cover Star, given the global scale of his fame, along with the exciting style of football he plays for European giants PSG.
