Corner Kicks grew stale over the years. For as long as we can remember, you had two options for attacking with a corner kick. Either slow roll pass it to another player on your side and try to wiggle in for a shot on goal, or high/low cross it into the box for a nice one timer. Well, we’re happy to say EA Sports finally put a stop to this in FIFA 15, sort of.
You basically have the same options with a twist. When you line up to take the corner, you can press Down on the D-pad to bring up a tactics list for your shot. At that point, by either pressing Up, Down, Left or Right again on the D-pad, you can choose to have your players set up for different plays. You could have them run near or far post, take a top of the box stance or crowd the keeper for a chance to get an unblocked kick.
We suggest never kicking the ball without using this tactic. You wouldn’t go to an all-you-can-eat buffet and just get a salad, would you? Use the options they give you. Your chance of scoring increases greatly if you run a specific tactic and kick accordingly. Simply kicking the ball into a pool of would-be receivers up against the new ultra smart goalie A.I isn’t the best idea
