Learn how to become a goalie
Let’s first fix a few settings.
To turn the goalkeeper catch toggle on, You need to need Sometimes having the catch toggle on may be buggy, however, when you switch off the toggle and keep it on when you want to catch, you will catch without the ball occasionally hitting you. This is, however, more difficult since it relies on more key presses simultaneously.
The second option is less important, but it is my preference. The toggle should be changed to an easy key for you to reach. It will toggle off when you have caught the ball.
The next step is the camera settings. I find it’s useful to have a higher height and distance, so you are able to see the ball in relation to the field. Otherwise, you don’t know how far or close the ball is. I prefer a greater distance to know my position relative to the goal when approaching from the side.
Always ensure that your gloves are switched on. (except for one occasion, which I will describe.)
This toggle is turned on.
This is turned off
This prevents the ball from being directed at you. Without it, everyone will laugh and point at you. This does not work when the X is on the gloves.
Don’t be adamant about standing on line. You’ll find that you have very little space to maneuver. Instead, you’ll need to work around in circles. In the front of the goal. This is the closest you can be most of the time. You should always be protecting the middle of the goal. You create the hardest shots this way.
Avoid diving at first, as it will often leave you out of your position. Instead, concentrate on being in the right place. Giving the strikers a chance to hit hard is a good thing.
It is essential to be unpredictable when dealing with breakaways. You don’t want to hurry or limit the space. See the cone below. It shrinks closer to the shooter. Get close, and it’s a much easier save. Rarely can you make an immediate save during a breakaway. Instead, limit the options of the player and then anticipate.
Professional goalkeepers use this technique. If the attack is coming from one direction, pushing is recommended. Wait until they are in the penalty box before pushing. Sometimes, you may have to be more cautious and take longer. While this may make saving more difficult, it can make it easier and more terrifying when you try to find the real deal.
Support and pa*sing
Most of your teammates will be in a state of sucky. If you’re indoors, take it to the sidelines. If you’re playing outside, use just enough power to get it to someone at half-line.
Push up when the ball is in the other half.
Also, when kicking the ball, turn off your gloves. This is essential for goal kicks because you may often get double touches.
Call for the ball
Hold ‘E’ to call for the ball. Do this when your defender is stressed and doesn’t have an outlet. You can help your defender if you push it as hard as possible.
