Knowing how to set up what angle and power is vital for increasing your chances of scoring. You should also make sure you are equipped with the right players in your squad.

That said, you can use this as a guide to improve this area of your EA FC 24 gameplay.

How to Take EA FC 24 Corners

To take good EA FC 24 corners, you need to:

  1. Aim the ball direction towards the penalty spot inside the box. You do this by moving the Left Stick (LS) to the right of the default starting angle
  2. Once you are ready to launch the ball into the box, switch to your best receiver of the ball using LB/L2
  3. Run toward the penalty spot with your selected player shortly after pressing X/Square to release the ball
  4. Hold B/Circle and aim your LS to aim your header towards the goal

Something you do not need to change is the curve (this is done with the RS) on the corner, no matter who is taking it.

If your opponent moves their goalkeeper manually, you will have to adjust your angle for both the corner kick and the player receiving the ball.

An example is if the goalkeeper is closer to the penalty spot, aim the ball towards the small box with a power of two bars. As you understand how different the situations work you will learn which areas and runs you need to make.

To move your goalkeeper, you press and hold your Right Stick (RS) and move it in the direction you want them to head towards.
