Goalie Control During a Penalty Kick

#1lloydxmas250Posted 12/9/2011 10:52:23 PM
I'm brand new to FIFA so forgive my ignorance but I can't seem to find if there's a way to not play as the goalie during a penalty kick. My AI seems to love to foul in the box so I usually have one penalty kick a game yet I have no clue how to control the goalie and really no desire to. Anyone know of any ways to control it or just bypass it completely? I'm ready to just turn penalties off or something. It's kind of ridiculous and I lose, tie, or barely win matches because of it. Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance.

To make the goalie dive to the left or right, use the Right Stick. That's it.

Alright. Is there a way to just have the computer do it? Or would I be better off to learn it myself? Thanks for the info.

Turn penalties off? What?

Just man up and learn to move the right stick to the left or right...

You should be able to turn penalties off. And offsides while we're at it. And goals. In fact lets just not play with a football.

Lets just have 11 v 11 cuddling. Lrn2penalties!

Wow. Glad I asked. I wouldn't mind if the game taught you how. I always moved the left stick and my goalie wouldn't do anything or would just sidestep. It's frustrating to get penalized for something my AI decides to do. Let's slide tackle someone from behind in the box. I don't like how frequently it happens. That's all. Thanks for the helpful feedback, I'll learn how to goal tend with it.

Do you see what your problem might be?
