I turned the difficulty up to semi-pro and used skill moves around the box to draw a foul. Aim for the corner of the goal and hope for the best, try not to slide your finger too fast on the screen and make sure it is a fluid motion. Took me 4-5 attempts to get this one. Plenty of time when you got the 100 games to play.
LuckyConquerer2 has reported that it seems to be easier to make a free kick when changing the difficulty after the foul from semi pro to beginner. I didn't notice much of a difference between semi-pro and beginner with regards to free kicks. I ended up making mine while on semi pro difficulty.
Skanker irl pointed out that he drew fouls on touch and classic controls. I only played on classic because well, its classic so I was used to them.
People are reporting they are getting fouled on amateur. If you can keep the ball on semi-pro, try going down to amateur.
