[top]Trophies

[top]
Soccer Legend
Unlock all other trophies (excluding additional content trophies)

Obtain the platinum by getting all the other trophies. It is quite time consuming and will require some skills to get the online trophies so be warned it's not an easy plat

[top]
Pinpoint Accuracy
Score a goal using the screen (touchscreen) shot, or a rear touch pad shot

This can be boosted online with a partner.

The Touchscreen shot is a new feature in the FIFA series and allows the player to shoot using the touchscreen or using the back touch screen. To shoot using the touchscreen shot, dribble the ball into the last quarter of the pitch near your opponent's goal and tap the screen on the goal; the ball will go in the direction wherever you tap the screen. I suggest you get the ball into the opponent's box so that you are 1v1 with the goalkeeper and tap one of the corners of the net and you will score. Make sure you tap the screen so the shot remains accurate and you don't hit the ball with too much power. Some luck is required.

[top]
Sharp Shooter
Score 50 goals using a touch shot

This can be boosted online with a partner.

Score 50 times using the touchscreen shot or the rear touchscreen shot to score. See Pinpoint Accuracy for more information. Another easy but cheap way to get easy goals using the touchscreen shot is to face a CPU on the amateur difficulty. Get the ball into the opponent's box so that their keeper comes towards you, then pass the ball to a team mate so they have a clear shot on goal with the keeper out of his net, use the touchscreen to tap the ball into the middle of the net. Rinse and repeat 50 times for this trophy.

[top]
Pressure is On
Score a penalty kick using a touch shot

This can be boosted online with a partner.

The hardest part of this trophy is getting a penalty in the first place, there isn't any way to make it happen against the computer but hanging around in the opponent's box. Doings skills would increase your chances of getting penalties. When you do get a penalty tap the touchscreen where you want to hit the ball, only do this when the marker is in the green on your accuracy meter or you will miss all together. Aiming for the corners will also increase your chances of scoring. The best times to do this is in a penalty shootout so you can have many tries at this. Or you can boost it online and just let your partner give you a penalty and let the ball go in too. Note: You will not get this trophy in arena mode.

[top]
You Pointing at Me?
Make a successful direct pass using the touchscreen

When you have the ball simple touch a player using the touchscreen to pass to him. You can do this straight from kick off, just make sure that you touch the player you want to pass to and not slightly in front of him or it'll do a through pass instead. You only need to tap the screen, do not hold or else you will either hit the ball too hard it or you could end up doing a lobbed pass instead. As soon as the ball successfully goes to a player directly you'll get this trophy.

[top]
Thread the Needle
Make a successful through pass using the touchscreen

To do a through pass using the touchscreen, touch an open space on the pitch just in front of one of your teamates. If done right the ball will go just infront of the player across the ground. If your through ball pass is successful you will get the trophy. Make sure you don't hold when touching screen or you'll do a lobbed pass instead so be cautious and only tap the screen.

[top]
Control the Open Space
Make a successful lob pass using the touchscreen in a match

Touch and hold the touchscreen to perform a lobbed pass. Touch and hold in the general direction of one of your teammates so that you can do a simple lobbed pass to them, you won't want to hold too long though as the player will clear the ball and it could go out of play. So make sure you only hold your finger in place a little so that you perform a accurate pass and as soon as your team mate touches the ball you'll get the trophy.

[top]
Nimble Fingers
Score a touchscreen or rear touch pad goal from a touchscreen pass

This can be boosted online with a partner.

This can be a little tricky as your fingers can end up all over the place and you won't be able to see where you are shooting. So I recommend you use the touchscreen to do your passes and use the rear touch pad to shoot and score with. A good way to do this is to pass the ball (using the touchscreen pass) to a teammate who is already near the opponent's box so they are in a good position to score in already. Then using the rear touchscreen aiming for one of the corners with decent amount of power (but not too much) and you should score which will get you the trophy . If you lose the ball after the touchscreen pass though you will need to do another touchscreen pass before you can score with the touchscreen shot.

[top]
Pass Master
Make 100 successful passes using the touchscreen

This can be boosted online with a partner.

For this trophy you can use any of the three touchscreen passes and they will all count towards this trophy as long as the pass reaches a team mate. A quick way of boosting this with yourself is to go into a match against a CPU with the difficulty on amateur, and just pass the ball around with your defenders. The opposition's strikers won't be able to take the ball away from you so you'll get 100 passes in no time.

[top]
All My Own Work
Win a Match with Manual Controls

This can be boosted online with a partner.

To score whilst using manual controls is quite difficult, so the best way to do this is to face a 1 star team on the amateur difficulty. Then only dribble the ball as passing will be a lot harder now it's on the manual setting and you may lose the ball if you try to pass. Dribble the ball into the opposition's box and when facing the goal press shoot and aim it towards goal, keep doing this until you score then just defend your lead until the end of the match.

This is what you need to set your control settings too for this trophy:

Auto switching: Manual
Auto switching move assistance: None
Passing power assistance: Off
Pass assistance: Manual
Through pass assistance: Manual
Shot assistance: Manual
Cross assistance: Manual
Lob pass assistance: Manual
Save assistance: Manual

[top]
Safe Hands
Play any match as the Goalkeeper with no assistance

All you need to do for this trophy is to change the "Save Assistance" to manual in the control settings which you can find in the "Customize" menu. Once you have done this go to the Be A Pro: Goalkeeper mode and play one match to the end and you will get the trophy.

[top]
Perfect Keeping
Play as the Goalkeeper in a Kick-Off match and finish with 100% Saving Accuracy

For this trophy I suggest you play with Save Assistance on so you get a little help saving shots. All you will have to do is save one shot to get 100% but if they shoot more then you will have to save more. This has to be done in a Be a pro: Goalkeeper match. Pick a pretty good team for this so the opponents don't get too many shots on target meaning you won't have to save as many shots, but don't pick a team that won't be able to take a shot at you at all or you won't be able to get 100% saving accuracy. As long as you stay in the marker on the floor and dive the right way you should save most shots that are on target. If you concede a goal, restart match.

[top]
Once in a Lifetime
Score as the Goalkeeper in any match

This can be boosted online with a partner.

There is a few ways you can do this. You could boost this online you just have to get a friend to let your goalkeeper score easy enough. But if you don't have anyone with the game you'll have to do it against the computer. Whenever you get a penalty have your goalkeeper take the shot, as long as you put the ball into one of the corners of the net and the opposition doesn't save it, you will get this trophy. If you can't wait to get a penalty however you will need to select the AI's difficulty to amateur and pass the ball back to your keeper, then he can dribble the ball all the way to the other side of the pitch and have a shot on goal. If he scores you get the trophy, but you cannot pass with the goalkeeper as he will just run back to his net so you have to dribble past the whole team. Boost if possible.

[top]
Aerial Threat
Score a header in a match with a player with the Aerial Threat Speciality

A player with the Aerial Threat specialty dominates in the whether it be in defense or attacking, they can jump quite high and head the ball particularly well. You can see a players "Specialities" in their player bio, look for a player with the "Aerial Threat" Specialty in your favorite team. To access a players bio go to "Edit Teams" in the "customize" menu and go into the team management of the team you play as the most. Go into your squad and press the button once and it should have the players "Specialities" on the right hand side, then just look for a player (Defenders or strikers will most likely have this specialty) and find a player with the Aerial Threat specialty. I found this one tricky as you need to get the ball up in the air for the right player to head the ball towards goal and score. Aim for this trophy when you have a corner or when you can do a through ball chip ( + ) pass the keeper for your striker( with this specialty) to head home and score. I got this trophy with D. Drogba who plays for Chelsea.

[top]
Crosser
Create a goal with a cross with a player with the Crosser Speciality

A player with the Crosser specialty is excellent at swinging the ball in from the wing into the box, they are accurate, serve with pace and can put the ball into dangerous areas. You can see a players "Specialities" in their player bio, look for a player with the "Crosser" Specialty in your favorite team. To access a players bio go to "Edit Teams" in the "customize" menu and go into the team management of the team you play as the most. Go into your squad and press the button once and it should have the players "Specialities" on the right hand side, then just look for a player (Midfielders and wingers will most likely have this specialty) and find a player with the Crosser specialty. Have the player with the crosser specialty cross the ball in from either side of the box using the button and aim for a team mate in the box. If successful your team mate will get the ball from the crosser and as soon as you score you will get this trophy. You can also use your crosser to take corners and if you score, it'll count and you'll get the trophy. I got this trophy with S. Gerrard who plays for Liverpool.

[top]
Distance Shooter
Score from outside the box with a player with the Distance Shooter Speciality

A Distance shooter is a player who not only has a powerful shot, they are accurate from distance. You can see a players "Specialities" in their player bio, look for a player with the "Distance Shooter" Specialty in your favorite team. To access a players bio go to "Edit Teams" in the "customize" menu and go into the team management of the team you play as the most. Go into your squad and press the button once and it should have the players "Specialities" on the right hand side, then just look for a player (Central midfielders are more likely to have this specialty) and find a player with the Distance shooter specialty. The just go into a random match and score with that player from outside the box. I got this trophy with F. Lampard who plays for Chelsea.

[top]
Playmaker
Create a goal with a player with the Playmaker Speciality

A playmaker has exceptional ability to distribute balls to his teammates, he is the guy you want to play through to create chances. You can see a players "Specialities" in their player bio, look for a player with the "Playmaker" Specialty in your favorite team. To access a players bio go to "Edit Teams" in the "customize" menu and go into the team management of the team you play as the most. Go into your squad and press the button once and it should have the players"Specialities" on the right hand side, then just look for a player (central midfielders are more likely to have this specialty) and find a player with the playmaker specialty. Once you are in a match you need to get the playmaker on the ball and pass to another one of your player who goes onto score. I got this trophy with David Silva who plays at Manchester City.

[top]
Poacher
Score from inside the box with a player with the Poacher Speciality

A poacher is a player who excels in Finishing inside the penalty area both with their feet and their head. You can see a players "Specialities" in their player bio, look for a player with the "Poacher" Specialty in your favorite team. To access a players bio go to "Edit Teams" in the "customize" menu and go into the team management of the team you play as the most. Go into your squad and press the button once and it should have the players
"Specialities" on the right hand side, then just look for a player (strikers are more likely to have this specialty) and find a player with the poacher specialty. The just go into a random match and score with that player. I got this trophy with J. Hernandez who plays at Manchester United.

[top]
Woodwork and In!
Score off the post or cross bar in a match

This trophy can be done in both a exhibition match or a practice match. This trophy requires a lot of luck and you will most likely get the trophy without aiming for it. But if you're still having trouble with this trophy what you can do is change the difficulty to "amateur" and use the new touchscreens to aim for the posts (tap the screen where the posts are). If you are close enough and accurate enough your player will hit the post and will rebound back into play giving you another chance to score, then all you have to do is score after the ball has hit the post or crossbar for the trophy. I recommend you try this in a practice match and have 11 attackers against the goalkeeper, you will be able to try for this trophy without worrying about defenders interrupting your shots if you do it like this.

[top]
Training Time
Work on your skills in any Arena Practice Mode

First you will need to go to the arena, from the main menu press the button, you can start to do skill moves here. You can do this with any player, but if your player only has 1 star skills then he can only do one skill move. To perform this skill move press and hold the button whilst standing still and tap repeatedly and you player will start doing kick ups.

[top]
Back of the Net
Score 5 goals in the Arena

In the arena you can practice your shooting against a goalkeeper on your own. For this trophy you will need to score 5 goals past the goalkeeper whilst in the arena. A good technique to scoring in the arena is to run into the box with the ball and then shoot with the or the back touch pad and aim for one of the corners and it should go in. If you are struggling to score make sure you only tap the shoot button so it doesn't go off target and pick a good player as your arena player. To change your arena player go to the "Customize" on the main menu and select "Arena Options", here you get to swap the player, the keeper or the stadium, change the player to a good striker like W.Rooney who plays for Manchester United. After 5 goals you'll get the trophy.

[top]
Warming the Gloves
Make 10 saves in the Arena

First you will need to switch sides to become the goalkeeper, once you're in the arena press and scroll down to "select sides" and change to the defending side to become the goalkeeper. To save a shot as the goalkeeper use the analog stick to move your player into the circle marker on the floor as this is the advised position for your goalkeeper to be in. Once you are in this position wait for the AI striker to come closer to the goal and attempt to score. Move your goal keeper towards the ball in order to block the shot and prevent a goal, you can also dive as a goalkeeper with the button. Do this 10 times for the trophy, the scoreboard in the top right will keep track of how many "saves" you have made.

[top]
Home and Away
Play and win every Stadium

You will need to win at least once in every stadium in the game. The stadiums you need to win in are:

Toggle Spoiler



It doesn't matter what time of day or what the weather is like just as long as you win in the stadium. I would make a checklist of what stadiums you have already won in as you win in them and play like normal as you will play in most of the stadiums through natural play, all you have to do is win.

[top]
Home Maker
Change the Home Stadium of any team

Easy trophy, go to "Customize" in the main menu and select "Edit Teams", then to stadiums. Once you are here pick a random team and change their stadium to something different than the home stadium for that team and apply changes. For example change Manchester United's stadium from Old Trafford to Town Park.

[top]
FIFA for Life
Spend 50 hours on the pitch

This will be one of the last trophies you will get before the platinum, so aim for every other trophy first. You can only get this trophy through activate play, so you can't leave it on the menus for 50 hours. You can either carry on playing more matches until you get the trophy or you can set up matches to have 20minutes halves and leave it to play to itself then set up another once that has finished and rinse and repeat until you have the trophy. I suggest you play in career mode as much as you can after you have every other trophy so you can keep track of how many matches you have played. You need to play approximately 300 matches if you are playing 4 minute halfs.

[top]
Around the World
Play a match with a team from every league

This trophy can be interpreted wrong but what you need to do is play as a team from every country and in every league, even lower divisions in the same country. Here is a list of what leagues you need to pick a team from and play a match with:
(The countries are in red and the leagues are below in black)

Toggle Spoiler




Note: You only have to play the match for this to count towards the trophy but you can hit 2 birds with 1 stone by aiming for the Home and Away trophy at the same time.

[top]
In the game
Create a Virtual Pro

From the main menu go to the Virtual Pro mode and select to edit pro. This will take you to the the virtual pro creator where you can add personal information, the players position, his physical attributes and edit his appearance. Once you are done press and you will get this trophy, you will need to do this for some other virtual pro only trophies so its an idea to do this trophy first so you can get trophies whilst aiming for others.

Rising Talent

Against the Odds
Win a Head to Head Ranked Match using a weaker team

First thing you will need to do is pick a weaker team than you opponent, so if they pick a 5 star team you will have to pick a 4 and a half star team or lower to beat them with. I'll list a few teams for each star level that are quite good picks to play with:

Toggle Spoiler



I advise you picking a team that you are good with and that is only one star rating lower than your opponents you don't need to make it harder for yourself. I picked Cote d'Ivoire myself they have a good fast team with Drogba, Doumbia and Gervinio up fro

[top]
Experimental
Play 5 consecutive Head to Head Ranked Matches with different teams

Pretty simple just play and complete 5 matches head to head online using 5 different teams. You won't get this trophy if you get disconnected from the match, so if people keep rage quitting on you just let them win so they won't disconnect on purpose. After the 5th match and as long as you played with 5 different teams you will get this trophy.

[top]
In for the Win
Take a Head to Head Ranked Match to extra time with a weaker team

The best way to take a match to Extra Time is to start winning 1-0 and in the 90th minute score an own goal. Then once the final whistle blows you and your opponent have an option to pick either, Extra time only, extra time and penalties or end the game as a draw. You and your opponent have to pick either extra time only or extra time and penalties, if the opponent picks End the game as a draw then you will miss this trophy. Make sure to pick a weaker team too, you only need to take the match to extra time. For more information View Against the Odds .

[top]
Good Form
Play 5 consecutive Head to Head Ranked Matches without losing

This is probably the hardest trophy in the game. You need to win 5 online games in a row without disconnections in head to head mode. The best way to aim for this trophy is to play as good teams, 4-5star teams, and just aim to win by 1 or 2 goals so the guy you're facing still thinks he has a chance to win and won't necessarily rage quit. If the opponent disconnects it will say you go the win but it won't count towards the trophy, if you disconnect then you get the loss and your streak will end. Try to win every match and you'll get 5 wins in a row eventually, you can even draw 5 times just as long as you don't lose. Unfortunately this trophy cannot be boosted as it needs to be a ranked match. If you have won 4 games in a row and in the 5th match the opponent disconnects, don't worry cause the next match you win you'll get the trophy.

[top]
Hundred and Counting
Play 100 Head to Head Ranked Matches

You will have to play and complete 100 head to head ranked for this trophy. This means you cannot boost this trophy with a friend and any disconnections will not count towards this trophy. The easiest way to get this trophy is just to lose 100 times so that no one rage quits on you if you beat them and you will be able to keep track of how many you have played that way. Playing 100 head to head matches will count towards your FIFA for Life trophy and will give you time to get Experimental & Good Form at the same time.

[top]
Mastermind
Have a substitute score a goal in Career Mode

A easy way to do this is to start a new career as the player manager and play your first match. As soon as you can, go into your team management and use of your 3 subs to replace 3 players, with preferably strikers and put them upfront and in good positions where they will have many chances to score. Then concentrate on the 3 new players on the pitch getting the ball and scoring with one of them to get this trophy.

[top]
Good Week!
Get yourself selected in the Team of the Week in Career Mode

You will need to do this by controlling a single player in career mode and getting a rating of 9.5 or higher in the match. This can only be done in player manager mode or player mode in the career. Getting a good rating depends on your performance in the match, to increase your rating you will need to score goals, position yourself correctly and make some good passes. If your rating is higher than anyone else's that week you will appear in the team of the week! Note that you have to be playing in the first team and not the reserves for this trophy.

[top]
Great Month
Win the Manager of the Month award in Career Mode

This is like Good Week! but for this trophy you have to be the manager. I recommend going for this trophy being the player-manager in the career mode so you can be in full charge of how your players play. To be awarded the manager of the month you will need to perform better than any of the other managers in the league that month. To do this simply win all the matches in any one of the months and you will eventually be awarded the manager of the month award and get this trophy. Picking a good team and playing on amateur difficulty will make it easier for you to win matches.

[top]
Established Keeper
Play a season as a goalkeeper in Career Mode

First change your virtual pro's position to Goalkeeper so you can use him for this trophy. Then go into the Career mode and choose to be a player. Choose your virtual pro to play with as long as you have changed his position to the goalkeeper, if not then pick a real goalkeeper instead. All you have to do next is play one season as the goalkeeper and you will get this trophy, simple. If you want to do this faster pick a goalkeeper who plays for a team in the Australian league as they play the least league matches than anyone else, a total of 27 matches per season.

[top]
Itís in the Blood
Go from being a Player to the Manager (or Player Manager) in Career Mode

To be offered the job as a player manager in Career mode you will need to move up the ranks starting as a player in the team. As you win more matches your rank will increase and the team will have more expectations from you. As you start to become a legend for the club, the owner will offer you to become the player-manager. Accept this offer to get this trophy. Remember to gain ranks at your club you will need to play well in matches and win competitions, this may take a few seasons to be offered the job so show loyalty by not moving to a different club and you'll be offered the job in time.

[top]
Folklore
Become a Legend as a player in Career Mode

In career mode, whilst playing as a player you will have a rating in the bottom left of the menu screen, this is your club rating. If you're starting as a new player your rating will start at the reserves and you will need to perform well in consecutive matches to be promoted to the first team and then become a key member and so on. As long as you keep playing well with your player your rating will keep going up until the club sees you as a legend. Play on a lower difficulty if you are struggling to win matches and concentrate on your player, making him score all the goals for the best match rating. This might take a few seasons to do with a virtual pro. Alternatively you can chose a real player instead how already has a high status at the club, so you won't have to play as many games for your club for you to get the legend rank. Keep playing matches and do well in them and you'll be a legend in no time.
