    Does a preferred foot matter with free-kick and corner-kick specialist?

    I have a corner kick and a free kick specialists. Does it matter which side they take set pieces on? Left foot on right corner/free kick and vice versa??

    I dont think so. Just make sure you have high stats of crossing, finishing and shooting works for me

    Do tests to find out which is the best for what and where. Start by going the logical way, that is, choose a player that has high attributes for the appropriate skills for the particular situation (corner or free-kick).

    There is no confirmation whether individual attributes, special abilities and foot preference matter, and if so how (positive or negative) and by how much (significant effect or not).

    I give you some examples of players I had.

    Scout List AMR/AMC/AML (left foot) Corner Specialist : Very good at taking corners, especially for the left side (some 'kicks weak centre pass' comments on the older version of the game, probably for the right side).

    Auction Market 2x AML/ML/DML (left foot, either foot) Free-Kick Specialist: Very poor at taking free-kicks.

    Scout List AMR/MR (not sure about the foot; maybe either foot) Free-Kick Specialist: Very good at taking free-kicks; scoring nearly every free-kick in the first few weeks, but then not so much in last week of the season.

    Auction Market (2nd hand player) MC (left foot) Free-Kick Special Ability: very good at taking free-kicks; scoring nearly every free-kick, even those on the right side despite the comment from old version: 'although not on his preferred side' (probably the best free-kick taker I ever had)

    Auction Market (Nordgen) MC (right foot) Corner Special Ability: decent at taking corners

    Acution Market (Nordgen) AML/ML (left foot): very good at taking corners and very good at taking free-kicks (probably the best player I ever had in this game)

    Acution Market (Nordgen) MC (right foot) free-kick special ability (trained): decent at taking free-kicks

    Auction Market (2nd hand player) MC (not sure about the foot; probably right foot) free-kick special ability: good at taking free-kicks

    Auction Market (Nordgen) AMC (either foot): good at taking free-kicks

    ST (given to the team by the game) corner specialist: bad at taking corners

    Auction market (2nd hand player) AMR/AMC (not sure about the foot) corner specialist: good at taking corners

    So, as you can see, there is something else with the player other than the special ability or foot when it comes to being good at something.
