But first it's important to know what Green Timed Finish is in the first place. In our article about the best finishing options in FIFA 22 we mentioned the Green Timed Finish again and again. It makes your finishes more precise and harder on the opponent's goal. For this you have to press the shoot button and just before the shot you just have to press shoot a second time.

When is the use of the Green Timed Finish most effective?

Goal attempts in the penalty area are usually very dangerous, as long as your players have a good shot stat and are aligned appropriately. But to increase your chances of scoring a goal, we recommend that you use the Green Timed Finish even at shorter distances from the goal. This will increase your chances of avoiding a bugged save from the opposing goalkeeper.

For several years, long range shots have not been an option in FIFA that has given regular goal scoring danger. In FIFA 22, however, finesse shots outside the sixteen are dangerous again. However, to overcome the opponent's goalkeepers, you'll definitely have to use the Green Timed Finish - otherwise the rate of dangerous attempts from distance is very low.

Other situations where you should use the Green Timed Finish are standards. Your free kicks and penalties are much better when you use the Green Timed Finish. The timing is also easier because the ball is at rest and you are not in a dynamic game situation. You can also use the Green Timed Finish on headers after free kicks or corners.
