If conventional scoring is a little too easy for you, try netting some goals with the bicycle kick. It’s a fantastic skill move that many FIFA players attempt from time to time, and to some’s luck, their attempts go in the back of the net in a fine fashion.

Just like scoring with the rabona, getting a goal at the back of a net using the bicycle kick is one of the best ways to show your opponent who they’re dealing with – aside from the fact that bicycle kick goals look pretty awesome as well.

In this article, I’ll tell you a little bit more about bicycle kicks as well as how to score a bicycle kick in FIFA 22. It’s pretty straightforward, but it’s gonna take you a bit of practice to get used to the nature of overhead kicks.

What is a Bicycle Kick?

A bicycle kick, or also known as a scissors kick, and an overhead kick refers to an acrobatic strike where the footballer kicks the ball towards the goal while both the player and the ball are midair. The footballer essentially throws their body backwards in the air and kicks the ball prior to descending to the ground.

If it all goes to plan, the ball will end up in the net. For reference, you can check out some famous bicycle kicks by players in the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and more.

To do an overhead kick, you first need to set up your player for success. If the player you’re crossing the ball to is positioned inappropriately or you cross in the ball too close to or in front of your target player, then the overhead kick attempt will probably fail.

What you need to do is cross the ball into an empty space, behind your target player, then, simply hold L2 (for PS) or LT (for Xbox) and hold down the shoot button (B for Xbox or O for Playstation) while aiming towards the net with your left analog stick.

If everything goes to plan, your player should perform an overheat kick and hopefully, the ball will end up at the back of the net. Generally speaking, attempting bicycle kicks with your strikers will prove to be more successful than with any other players from your team.

Final Thoughts

Scoring a bicycle kick doesn’t have to be harder than you think it might be. With good timing, positioning, and proper technique, you can score some beautiful goals and show your opponent that you aren’t messing about.

The most important thing to remember is that you need to cross the ball behind the player that you want to execute the bicycle kick with. This way, your striker can turn around, and do the bicycle kick, and strike the ball at the back of the net.

It will definitely take some practice but it’s important to remember that practice makes perfect. Try it and let me know how you get on.
