Ranking the Best EA Sports FC 24 Penalty Takers
If you're looking to find the top penalty-takers in EA Sports FC 24, you should keep a few things in mind. While accuracy is essential, other factors like composure and shot power can make all the difference. And here's a little secret – players with signature styles tend to have a higher goal percentage than those without. So make sure you consider all these things when building your ultimate team!
10. James Tavernier
If you're an avid player of Ultimate Team, you've likely heard of James Tavernier. Despite his modest 78 overall rating, this seasoned pro from the Rangers is a force to be reckoned with regarding penalty kicks. Few can match his skill and precision in beating the keeper.
Tavernier is a standout player in penalty taking, with a rating of 90 that puts him among the top players in the game. But what sets him apart is his signature penalty style, which is a rare find. His shot power is an impressive 77, and his composure is 74, which is more than enough for him to be a lethal force from the penalty spot. With finesse shots in his arsenal, Tavernier is a true specialist in this area.
9. Bruno Fernandes
Bruno Fernandes is notorious for his penalty-taking skills and even became a meme because of it. But don't let that fool you – Bruno is one of the best penalty-takers in the game. His penalty rating is an impressive 90, and he's got a powerful shot with an 88 rating. Plus, he's got some severe composure with an 82 rating. And let's remember his signature penalty style – it's beautiful.
Bruno Fernandes is a reliable choice when it comes to those nail-biting moments in an elimination game or the crucial penalty kick. Although his Play Styles may not be tailored for these specific situations, his impressive stats more than compensate for it. He's a solid option that any team can count on.
8. Robert Lewandowski
It's no secret that Barca's striker is a true master when it comes to taking penalties. Even in his days at Borussia Dortmund, he was always the go-to guy for spot kicks. And with a 90 rating in penalty kicks, he's part of an elite club. But what sets him apart is his incredible ability to finish from the 12-yard spot. His 91 shot power and 88 composure are a testament to that. It's no wonder he's considered one of the best in the game.
It's no secret that Lewandowski is one of the top dogs in the game when it comes to finishing, with an impressive rating of 93. But what sets him apart from the rest are his killer Play Styles – power shots and finesse shots – which increase the chances of scoring and add some much-needed variety to your penalty-taking game. When it comes to spot kicks, Lewandowski is a force to be reckoned with, and you can be sure he'll give it his all no matter what.
7. Borja Iglesias
Regarding taking and making penalties, superstar status only matters a little. That's why the Real Betis striker is someone to watch in EA FC 24. With a penalty rating of 92, he's got the goods. Unfortunately, the rest of his stats can't quite keep up. His composure is only rated at 82, and his shot power (85) and curve (0) leave something to be desired. At least he's got finesse on his side with the Play Style.
Despite being an underrated player for his position, Borja Iglesias has a penalty rating that is simply impressive. With the perfect timing, he can make the most of them without breaking a sweat. His skills on the field are not to be underestimated.
6. Raul Jimenez
It's official: Raul Jimenez has once again claimed the title of best penalty-taker. He shares this honor with Borja Iglesias, both boasting a 92 penalty rating. Jimenez knows how to seize the moment and maximize his chances from the 12-yard spot. However, he could work on his composure and shot power, coming in at 78 and 84, respectively.
His curve is superior, but it's only rated at 75. He is slightly more well-rounded than the Spaniard in taking penalties. Still, he primarily relies on his spot-kick skills rather than his overall abilities or statistics.
5. Neymar Jr.
It's hard to deny that Neymar is a force to be reckoned with in the world of sports. He recently made a surprising move to Saudi Arabia, where he signed one of the most significant contracts in sports history. Despite this, he still maintains one of the game's highest ratings. One of his standout skills is his ability to take penalties – in fact, he's so good that rules had to be made to prevent him from tricking goalkeepers.
With a penalty rating of 91, it's no wonder he's a standout player. While his shot power may be lacking with a rating of only 79, he makes up for it with impressive composure and a curve rating of 88. Overall, Neymar is a true talent and a joy to watch on the field.
4. Megan Rapinoe
Megan Rapinoe may be in the later stages of her career, but she's still at the top of her game regarding penalties. With a 91 penalty rating and 91 composure, she's as calm and collected as they come. And let's remember her impressive 90 curve rating, which allows her to place the ball wherever she wants, leaving the keeper with no chance. Her shot power is also nothing to scoff at, coming in at a solid 84. She's easily one of the best female players with her play style and penalty-taking abilities.
3. Alexia Putellas
Alexia Putellas, the Spanish superstar, has the highest overall rating of 91 in the game. Not only that, but her penalty rating is also 91, making her unstoppable from the spot. As the most complete player in the game, all her stats are elite. With a composure rating of 92, a curve rating of 89, an 86 shot power rating, and a 91 finishing rating, it's no wonder she's the two-time Ballon d'Or winner and the 2023 World Cup champion. And let's not forget her finesse shot Play Style, which makes her the best women's player overall and from 12 yards.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo
If you're a football fan, you've heard about Cristiano Ronaldo and his impressive penalty goals. He's considered one of the best players in the game's history, especially when taking penalties. However, his move to Al-Nassr has caused quite a stir as he's facing a significant downgrade in his career. His rating for penalties is still at 90, but as any seasoned viewer knows, he's got a 92 rating for both shot power and composure.
But that's not all. Ronaldo has the Power Shot+ Play Style, which means the missiles he launches at goalkeepers are almost impossible to stop, even if the keeper guesses the right direction. And let's remember his unique penalty style, which has been a staple in the game for a long time. He proves that a high penalty rating isn't everything. Overall, Ronaldo is a true legend of the game and an exciting player to watch.
1. Harry Kane
If you've ever watched Harry Kane take a penalty, you know he's a master at it. He's got a penalty rating of 92, shot power of 92, and composure of 93. And let's remember his impressive finishing rating of 95. However, some may argue his skills were tested during that infamous World Cup match against France.
While he may not have the same play styles as others in the game, he's still a force to be reckoned with. His curve rating 82 may not be the best, but it's still better than Ronaldo's. But Bayern's star signing is the top choice regarding penalties. Trust me, no goalkeeper will be able to stop him.
