Winning The Arial Duel
The very first thing that you’re going to need to do in-order to be the king of headers on FIFA 14, is to make sure you win them Arial dues every single time. This is easier said than done, but we know the best tips and tricks to make this happen.
When your player crosses it, what you’ll need to do is start moving your attacking player into the defender that’s going up for the jump with you. You can either run into him from distance, or you can simply hold the sprint button down and carefully nudge him out of the way at close distance.
You should notice that the opposition player is now out of the duel and you have a free header at goal to try and score past the goalkeeper.
Generating Power To Beat The Keepers
There are two different methods to use, it’s entirely up to you on which one works best for you personally. The first technique is just simply holding the shoot button in to just slightly over halfway. We can’t give an exact judgement of how long to hold it in for, because it depends on how far out from goal you are. You’ll just have to practice for a little while and get use to how long you should hold the gauge in for depending on distance out from the opponents goal.
The second method is by far the best one to use! What you need to get in your head to understand where we are coming from is imagine that you’re holding an elastic band pulling it back and then letting go and seeing it fly over the other side of the room. That’s exactly the best example of how this next method works.
All you have to do is when the cross comes flying in from the wing, you must pull the left-trigger to the opposite side. So if the goal is to your left and that’s where you’d usually aim the left-trigger, instead aim for the right and just before contact aim it towards the goal to see the power header come off. It’s all about your timing and positioning, but if you nail it, there’s not a chance for any keeper to save it and that includes ?ech, Neuer and Casillas.
Sign OP Players With Great Jump Stats
There’s a saying (you’ve got to be in it to win it) and that couldn’t be more true with heading the ball into the back of the net. A player can have the best heading stats in the world, 99 out of 100 in-fact, but if he’s not that blessed with climbing and his jump is poor, then he’s never gonna compete with other OP players. Make sure the first thing you look at is the jumping stats, this is where you’ll get up higher than your opponent and then have a greater chance of winning the Arial duels.
You can check out the stats on the Career Mode easily in your squad which is at the main menu when you load up your career. To check that players stats in Ultimate Team you need to start a match and then pause the game and go to substitutes. From there you can scroll down and check out all of your players that have the best statistics and search for jump.
