Dipping Free Kicks
This is, hands down, the best possible method of taking a free kick in FIFA 15. In order to execute this kick, you need to press B/Circle button and push the left analogue stick in the forward direction.

There are a couple of things that you should bear in mind when it comes to dipping kicks; make sure that you’re not too far away from the box, kick power must not exceed fifty per cent of the total power, and rotate the camera on the left side players to make the most out of these.

Curved Free Kicks
Similar to the dipping free kicks, these should also be taken from near the goal. You need to make sure that the kick taker has decent passing accuracy and you’ll be fine. To do these types of free kicks, you need to press LB/L1 and then press B/Circle on the consoles.

Quick Free Kicks
This is basically to catch your opponents off guard. In case, you’re in the lead, try and go for a quick restart instead of waiting too long. You can also stand idle and the game will eventually present the standard free kick procedure.

In order to go for a quick restart, you can press any button and go for it. You can call the 2nd player by pressing LT/L2 and call in the third player by pressing RB/R2.
