It’s Friday and that means it’s time for some FIFA Interactive World Cup training! Today, we switch our focus from defending FIWC champion Nenad Stojkovic to a FIFA 11 Freestyler we met at at the recent FIWC11 Live Qualifier Event held in London.

We were so impressed by Francis and his skills on EA SPORTS™ FIFA11 that we asked him to share his tricks and tips with the world. In today’s episode, Freestylin’ Francis covers some of the best ball juggling tricks and moves you can perform on FIFA 11.

While silky tricks and feints may not always secure you a winning result, these inspired moments of creativity make the football heart beat harder and louder. They are also the moves that earn you the fans’ respect and applause. With tricks like the ‘around-the-world’ you can show fans that you have much more skills with the ball than just passing and shooting.

For those of you who enjoy employing this Brazilian football style in your game, we have recorded a three-part tutorial with Francis. In today’s edition, our host focuses on the first steps to becoming the next freestyle professional. At the beginning it is recommended to practice these tricks in the ‘arena modus’ before entering the real pitch.

Stay tuned! Season 4 of the FIFA Interactive World Cup runs from 1 to 25 March. There are only six online seasons in total. Play now, qualify for the Grand Final and secure your chance to win USD 20’000 as well as a trip to the FIFA Ballon d’Or!
