All these movements that you do while playing the game, should be dependent on whether or not you are having the ball on your feet and in your control at that point in time.
  • Again on the left-hand side of the screen, you will find there is a virtual stick with whose help you can run in the game.
  • On the bottom hand of your main screen, you will see four slots that distribute prizes. On playing four matches at a stretch, you can win four power packs. You can keep playing after that but after the four prize slots are full, you cannot win any power pack.

  • When you start playing the game, on your initial levels, you will notice that the AI will not be too bright, so you have to eventually learn how to tackle them smoothly with ease or how to take them down with a well-timed slide.
  • In case you notice that your AI is getting too close to your goal, then you have to understand that it is time to take them down with a slide tackle; but you must be careful enough while doing this because if you mess this up, your player might get a yellow or in worst-case scenarios, even a red card.
  • As you are ready to goal, with the help of the virtual joystick, you have to first aim towards the goal. It is usually not difficult to score because the players generally follow a slow pace.

Scoring a Goal in Mini Football

  • You get the opportunity to take control of them only when your goalkeeper has successfully carried out his job and it is you who have to decide whether to pass it on to a player nearby or kick it out towards the middle of the field.
