How to Use an Outside Foot Shot (Trivela) in FIFA 23

Adding the Outside Foot shot, known as the Trivela, to your FIFA 23 arsenal is essential if you’re hoping to be competitive with the FUT 23 meta.

Sometimes your team will build up a play only to land a shot on your striker’s weaker foot. Unless your ST has a five-star Weak Foot, the chances it goes in are slim.

Thankfully, there are other options. When you use an Outside Foot Flair Shot and are running in, your player will opt for a Trivela curve shot instead of using your weak foot.

FIFA 23 Outside Foot Shot Tips & Tricks – Best Time to Use

  • Not every Flair Shot will be an outside foot shot. You need to be at the right angle for that. Sometimes players will do a trick shot on goal.
  • If you use a Flair Shot while the ball is in the air, your player will perform a bicycle shot.
  • If you’re lined up with your strong foot and have plenty of space, then a better option to use would be the newly implemented Power Shot.
  • If you have a player with the Outside Foot Trait, the player will perform a Trivela without needing to press anything besides the shooting button.
  • Use the driven lobbed through pass to properly set up your player with enough space for an outside foot shot on a breakaway play.
