Skill Games
Improve your football skills by completing challenges that test specific manoeuvres such as chip shots, free kicks, and dribbling. As you master these abilities, you unlock Skill Challenges to become Legendary at each proficiency. Compare yourself to friends and others on the leaderboards for extra motivation as you progress through the levels!
This section takes you through learning the basics of the game and is therefore the best place to start your FIFA experience, to learn new skills, or to refresh on old skills.

To select your player you can go to the Skill Games tile and move RS right for Select Arena Player. Alternatively you can go to Customise>Settings>Select Arena Player. This doesn't let you choose a goalkeeper though so for the goalkeeper challenges the goalkeeper of the arena player's club will be chosen. If you aren't happy with this then go to Customise>Settings>Select Arena Goalkeeper.

There are 13 sets of skill games. In each set you start with the Bronze Skill game. Once you have passed that you unlock the silver level, then the gold level, and then finally the Skill Challenge level. You can also compare your score against your friends or the world by pressing LT/RT on the description of the particular skill game at the practice hub. Your progression will also be monitored so you know how near you are to unlocking the next stage, or what your top score is on the skill challenge if you have already unlocked that.



1/13 Ground Pass

Ground Pass
Learn how to choose a pass receiver, about different assistance levels, and practice your timing in the ground pass skill games. Once you are comfortable with the controls, see how well you can do in the Skill Challenge.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Short Passing, Long Passing and Curve attributes.
Bronze Level
In this drill try to pass the ball to the mini net that is highlighted. Use LS to aim toward your desired target, and A to power up the pass. When multiple nets are in a similar direction you can pass to the farther mini net by powering up for longer, and the closer mini net by not powering up as much.
In this drill there are seven mini nets. There is a ball feeding machine in front of you which will feed you balls. You need to hit the highlighted nets in the order they are highlighted. The best way to do this is to keep an eye on the arrow by your feet that you are directing with LS as this is the direction the pass will go in. Press and hold A and let go when the direction is good. Also be careful not to dribble the ball outside the highlighted area, although you can dribble within the area to get into a better position to play your pass.

You start with 12 attempts and 1 minute 30 seconds. You need to get 5,000 points to pass the challenge. For each mini net you score in you get 500 points. You also get bonus points for the amount of time left, plus the number of attempts you didn't use.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Silver Level
In this drill, try to pass the ball to the mini net that is highlighted, without hitting any of the moving players. Use LS to aim toward your desired mini net, and A to power up the pass. When multiple nets are in a similar direction you can pass to the farther mini net by powering up for longer, and the closer mini net by not powering up as much.
In this drill there are six mini nets behind some rails with player cutouts on that move back and forth along the rails. Each mini goal will be highlighted in turn in a random order. So direct your passes to the mini nets whilst timing them so as not to hit the moving player cutouts. Again concentrate on the arrow at your feet that you are directing, and also try not to dribble out of the area.

You start with 12 attempts and 1 minute 30 seconds on the clock. You need to get 4,000 points to pass the challenge. For each mini net you get the ball into you get 500 points. You also get bonus points for the amount of time left, plus the number of attempts you didn't use. If you hit a player cutout you lose 200 points.
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Gold Level
In this drill, try to pass to the highlighted mini net. You will have 16 balls randomly launched at you and 16 mini nets to score on. Assistance is set to Manual. Extra points will be awarded if you score closer to the centre of the mini net. The more touches of the ball before you pass, the less points you will get.
In this drill you start in the centre circle. There are four ball feeders located around it with 16 mini nets. The balls will be fed to you randomly from the feeders and a mini net will be highlighted that you need to pass the ball into. Try to do a one-time pass for more points. The mini nets can repeat.

You start with 16 attempts and 1 minute 30 seconds on the clock and you need to get 8,000 points to pass the challenge. For each mini net you pass into you get points. You get more points for hitting them centrally, and also for passing into them by taking a minimum amount of touches before hitting your pass. However it is much easier to pass this challenge if you do take multiple touches before making sure you put the ball in the correct net.

You also get bonus points for the amount of time left at the end.
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Skill Challenge
Try to keep the ball away from the defenders for as long as possible. Only first time passes will be allowed. For each consecutive pass you will be awarded points. More points are given for fancy passes and nutmegs.
In this one you control four guys in yellow bibs, and have to pass it amongst yourselves using only first time passes within the highlighted area, whilst keeping the ball away from the defender in the blue bib. Obviously the fancy passes get you more points but are harder to pull off so you may want to keep it simple until you get really good before attempting them. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 8,000 points.

2/13 Advanced Ground Pass

Ground Pass
Practice your passing with 'Manual' assistance in more complex scenarios. Be creative and try combinations of first time passes and triangle passing in the Skill Challenge.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Short Passing, Long Passing and Curve attributes.
Bronze Level
In this drill, try to pass to your teammate following the blue arrows and not hitting any of the poles. Use LS to direct and A to power up... Once you have passed through the last pole, you will see a Defender and Goalkeeper. Beat them and score. Make sure your teammate is close enough to you at all times, otherwise the drill will finish.
In this drill there are ten poles laid in a straight line on the pitch with gaps between them. On one side is one player, and on the other is the other player. You'll both jog along passing through the gaps in the poles in the way the blue arrows indicate. If you get out of sync you can try and speed up or slow down the player who is out of sync (easier to slow down).

Once through the last gap the defender and goalkeeper become active and you need to try and use your two players to score a goal.

You start with 1 attempt and 1 minute on the clock. You need to get 8,000 points to pass the challenge. For each successful pass you get points. You also get points for scoring (2,000) and skilling the defender or goalkeeper (1,000). You also get bonus points for the amount of time left. You lose points for hitting a pole (-500).
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Silver Level
In this drill, use LS to aim your pass and A to power it up. Follow the arrows to complete passes to your teammates. Don't trap the ball as you must pass on the go. After you have passed through your last arrow attempt a first time shot into the net. For this challenge passing settings will be on manual.
This drill is similar to the last in that you move along a line passing the ball through gates, except this time on the other side are 6 teammates rather than just one who jogs along with you. Also the gates are wider and formed by cones and not poles and all the passes need to be done first time or the drill ends. Try and pass as the arrows indicate. Then after this section take a first time shot at the goal, hopefully hitting one of the five targets in it. Don't hit passes too hard as they will go outside the highlighted area and the drill will end.

You start with 1 attempt and 25 seconds on the clock. You need to get 7,000 points to pass the challenge. For each gate you get the ball through you get 300 points. You get 200 points for finding the correct man, and also points for hitting a target at the end with your shot. You also get bonus points for the amount of time left. You lose points (-500) if you pass to a man you passed to already.
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Gold Level
In this drill, pass to your teammate and make sure the pass goes through the gate. The gate and the zone will slowly shrink. For extra points, use the first time passes or pass the ball right through the centre of the gate. Try to align your pass by using LS to aim and A to power it up.
In this drill there are two players in two separate highlighted areas and a gate between them that the ball needs to be passed through. The gate and the areas get shorter as time passes. The best thing to do is concentrate on getting your LS pointing directly up and directly down as you deliver your passes, and to do the passes first-time..

You start with 1 minute and 30 seconds on the clock and you need to get 7,500 points to pass the challenge. For each pass through the gate you get 200 points, for a first time pass you get an additional 100 points and for getting the pass through the very centre of the gate you get an additional 150 points.
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Skill Challenge
Try to keep the ball away from the defenders for as long as possible. For each consecutive pass you will be awarded points. More points are given for the first time passes, fancy passes, really long passes, and nutmegs. And of course, for this skill challenge passing settings will be on "Manual".
This time you are control 7 teammmates that are stationed around four defenders. You need to try and pass it amongst the seven whilst staying in the area and keeping it away from the defenders. You get points for passes, and based on the types of pass too. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 20,000 points.

3/13 Shooting

Shooting
Practice Driven shots, Finesse Shots, and Headers, and then put them to use to compete for high scores in the Skill Challenge.

For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Finishing, Shot Power and Volleys.
Bronze Level
Press B to take a shot at goal. The longer you hold B the harder your shot will be, and the higher your shot will go. Use LS to aim left and right. You'll have eight attempts to hit all 4 targets in the goal.

In this drill there is a highlighted area just inside the area in front of you. You start with the ball at your feet and need to run into the coned area and take a shot from inside it to try and hit a target in the goal. There are four targets, one in each of the four corners of the goal. In front of the goal is a moving player cutout that goes back and forth.

For the higher targets you need to power up your shots for longer, but not too long of course or it will go over the bar. Finesse shot also works pretty well too.

You start with 8 attempts and have 1 minute 30 seconds to hit the targets and you need to get 5,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how much power you used (the more power, the more points) and how central you hit each target (the more central, the more points). You will also get a bonus for any time you have left at the end, plus for any attempts you didn't use. You lose points (-100) for hitting the player cutout.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Silver Level
Press B to head the ball. The longer you hold B the harder your header will be, and the higher the ball will go. Use LS to aim left and right. You'll have eight attempts to hit all 4 targets in the goal. You will lose points if you hit the player cutout.
This is similar to the bronze challenge, with the coned area being just in the area, and four targets being situated in the goal's corners. There is also a moving cutout moving back and forth in front of the goal. This time you start in the coned area and high balls are fed in to you to head towards goal. Press B for longer to hit the higher targets.

You start with 8 attempts and 1 minute on the clock and you need to get 5,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how much power you used (the more power, the more points) and how central you hit each target (the more central, the more points). You will also get a bonus for all the time you have left at the end, plus for any attempts you didn't use. You lose 1,000 points each time you hit the player cutout.
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Gold Level
In this drill, you will be shooting from a distance at the goalie. Press B to run up and to power up your shot. You will have better chances to score by using the finesse shot RB. You have 8 attempts to shoot the ball at the goalie.
There are eight balls lined up in a straight line outside the area. You will shoot each of them in turn going from left to right. The keeper is in the goal so try and beat him. Use finesse shots as suggested in the challenge description.

You start with 1 minute on the clock and you need to get 2,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for a goal (500) or for hitting the woodwork (200). You get bonus points for time still left on the clock at the end. If you fail to shoot a ball after your run up then you'll have to start again.
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Skill Challenge
In this drill, try to hit as many targets and water bottles as you can. Assistance will be set to 'Manual'. Use all the skills you've learned in the previous drills to pick the appropriate shot type for the given situation. More points will be awarded for hitting targets with more power and more accuracy. You will have 16 balls launched at you to get as many points as you can.
This time there is no time on the clock so you can take as long as you want. There is a goal with 7 targets lined up under the bar, and two moving targets moving along the floor. In front of the goal is a moving player cutout and in front of that is a moving player cutout wall.

The balls will be fed into you in the coned off area. Just control it and wait until the best time to shoot and shoot. You can try finesse shots or maybe even chip shots.

You have 16 attempts and no time limit. You gain points for scoring a goal (500) plus extra for hitting the targets. You get more points for hitting the targets harder and more centrally. You lose points for hitting the player cutout, or wall (-200). Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 45,000 points.

4/13 Advanced Shooting

Advanced Shooting
Practice Chip Shots, First Time Shots from distance, and Air battles, then get high scores with what you've learned in the Skill Challenge, where we will put you in match situations.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Finishing, Shot Power and Volleys.
Bronze Level
To do a chip shot, hold LB while powering up a shot with B. In this drill, you will be trying to chip the ball up and over the wall to score a goal, or better yet, hit the target. The targets will become active when you have the ball in the zone designated by the cones.
In this drill there is a highlighted area coned off that you need to shoot from. Between that and the goal will be a player cutout wall, or a wall of boxes blocking the goal. You need to score a goal and there are extra points available too if you hit the target that is hanging from the crossbar in the goal.

The first scenario in which you try to score has the highlighted area at the near side of the penalty area and a player cutout wall between it and the goal. The next scenario sees you trying to score from the far side of the penalty area over a high wall of boxes. The third has three water bottles on the line, one row of boxes ahead of them and the highlighted area in the box. You may want to come into the highlighted area sideways if you want to reduce the angle you need to shoot at.

The last scenario sees the highlighted area at the D of the penalty area. Ahead of you is a player cutout wall and lots of boxes in the goal bar a space in the middle below the crossbar where the target hangs with a water bottle below it.

You start with 12 attempts and have 1 minute 30 seconds to score the four chip shots and you need to get 6,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for scoring the goal, and extra for hitting a target. You will also get a bonus for all the time you have left at the end, plus for any attempts you didn't use.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Silver Level
In this drill an air ball will be played into you from 4 different angles. Position your player, power up and try to score. Try holding down LT to request fancier finishes like bicycle kicks. More points will be awarded for bicycle kicks, volleys, chip shots and finesse shots. Get as many points as you can in 16 attempts.
This time the ball is being played from four ball feeders at the corners of a highlighted area around the D of the penalty area. There is a goalie and a wall of boxes in his goal.

This time crosses are coming in to the box where your man is. You have to shoot the ball into the goal to try and hit the boxes, or just the goal. If you hit the wall you get points taken away (-100).

To do well in this one you need to take as many shots as you can in the allotted time, so always try to take it first time. Always use the flair shots too, as that gives more points, plus aim for the high targets, and in particular the targets in the two top corners. Try again for the high balls to position yourself so that you can do scissor or bicycle kicks. You have one minute. Good luck.

You start with 16 attempts and there isn't a time limit, and you need to get 12,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how fancy your shots are, how much power you knocked the boxes down with, and by scoring. You lose points for wayward shots that hit the player cutout wall behind the goal.
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Gold Level
In this drill you will be practicing air battles. Positioning is the most important factor to win a header. Use LS to move your player towards the ball when it is in the air. Power up your header. Once your player is about to head the ball quickly move the LS to aim toward the net and direct your header. You will have 16 attempts to get as many points as you can.
It might be worth choosing Ibrahimovic for this one as he is tall and has good strength and heading ability.

There is a highlighted coned off area inside the penalty area. Your player will be jostling with a defender. Ahead of them is a goal with lots of targets in it, and a player cutout moving back and forth in front of them. Even some of the targets are moving.

Balls are played into your striker who you need to position correctly to try and head the ball into the net, whilst trying to hit those targets.

You start with 16 attempts and no time limit. You need to get 10,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for hitting the targets, and points for getting a goal (1,000). You lose points for hitting the player cutout (-1,000).
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Skill Challenge
In this drill, you will be given multiple scoring opportunities against the defence. Get points by making successful passes to your teammates, volleys, GK saves, fancy shots, long range shots and chip shots. Watch out for offside as you will be deducted points. You have 3 minutes to rack up as many points as you can.
This time you start from various places on the pitch with the ball at your feet or being played into you. There will be fellow attackers that you control, and also defenders and a goalkeeper to beat too.

Sometimes when you are far out the keeper will be out of his goal so look out for this and try and score straight away by lobbing the keeper.

To do well in this one you can try to score lots of goals, and try fancy shots. You also get points for the keeper making a save (100), for beating a defender (100) and for successful passes (200). You lose points for offsides (-300) and a defender getting it (-100). You have 3 minutes. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 30,000 points.

5/13 Dribbling

Dribbling
Practice basic dribble turns and player avoidance. Make a strategy to cross gates protected by defenders. Practice your skill moves and beat players and the goalkeeper in 1 on 1 situations.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Dribbling, Sprint Speed and Acceleration attributes. Also if you choose a player with 5 star skill moves then that will be useful. You may also want to refresh yourself with the Skill Moves controls before embarking on the harder of these challenges.
Bronze Level
Use LS to navigate your way through the gates as quickly as possible and take a shot at an active water bottle in the goal. Water bottles will become inactive the longer you take.
In this drill you start in your own half and need to zigzag your way through gates formed by ten poles that lie the length of the pitch, making sure to follow the direction of the arrows on the ground. The poles have water bottles on top of them.

Once through these you need to take a shot at the goal, hopefully hitting one of the active water bottles or the cardboard boxes that they sit on which are at both sides of the goal.

You start with 20 seconds on the clock and you need to get 12,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how quickly you go through each gate and also with your shot at the end, if you hit a water bottle (10,000 for a direct hit) or box. You will also get a bonus for any time you have left over at the end. You lose 1,000 points if you hit a pole so that the water bottle falls down to the ground.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Silver Level
In this drill, try to dribble around the players moving side to side without hitting any of them. Press LS to navigate around them. After moving around the last player, you will see a GK, press B to shoot on net. You have 30 seconds to complete this drill.
This drill sees you faced with 17 player cutouts that are between you and the goal. Each player cutout sits on a rail and is moving back and forth, side to side. Dribble through these timing yourself so not to hit them. The easiest way is to zigzag through them without using sprint. Once through here shoot at the goal and try and score past the goalkeeper.

You start with 30 seconds on the clock and you need to get 8,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how quickly you go through the player cutouts, and how closely you dribble it around them, with your shot at the end (1,000 points for a goal). You will also get a bonus for any time you have left over. You lose if you knock a player cutout off of its rails, or if you go out the right or left of the highlighted area the cutouts are in.
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Gold Level
In this drill you will have to cross all the gates in both directions. Watch out as defenders are overly aggressive and will attempt to knock the ball out of your possession at all times. An effective way to change directions is by protecting the ball pressing LT.
This drill has seven gates formed by cones and you need to go into them from both ends. At the same time there are eight defenders in the area, one of which follows you about and the others who become active when you go through their gate. When they get the ball from you that is one of your five attempts over, but if their gate is completed they will not become active again in any of your next attempts.

One way of doing this is to go in one end of each gate then reverse straight away to get in the gate from the other end. However an easier way is to go through each gate in one direction with the defenders chasing you, then to reverse and go through them all in the other direction.

You start with 1 minute 30 seconds on the clock and 5 attempts and you need to get 9,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on getting the ball through the gates (500 points each way) and for avoiding slide tackles from the "overly aggressive" defenders (200 points a time). There are no bonus points for completing the challenge early (so if going for a high score don't go through the final gate until near the end), and no bonus points for any attempts you have left.
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Skill Challenge
In the first stage of this drill you will need to perform a skill move to get past the gates. To do a skill move use the RS. In the next stage try to beat the defenders and Goalkeeper. You will get extra points by dribbling into the net, scoring from a skill move, fancy passes or shots, beating defenders or goalkeeper, and nutmegs.
First go through the two gates indicated by the arrows using skill moves (easiest is probably the roulette). The goalkeeper here will be starting behind you and running towards the goal in an attempt to get in your way whilst you navigate those gates so be quick. Once through that part skill the keeper and dribble into the goal, and try a skill move near the line.

You then have 11 more attempts to score goals by dribbling it or skill moving it into the net, whilst skilling the defenders and goalkeepers for extra points.

You start with 2 minutes on the clock and have 12 attempts. To get high scores go for skilling the defenders a lot to make sure you use all of the two minutes.

To get Legendary on this you need 35,000 points.

6/13 Advanced Dribbling

Advanced Dribbling
Learn and master dribbling at pace, and in tight spaces while using all of the different techniques available. Race against a player cutout, time your moves to avoid obstacles, protect the ball and try to achieve Legendary in the new Gauntlet.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Dribbling, Sprint Speed and Acceleration attributes. Also if you choose a player with 5 star skill moves then that will be useful. You may also want to refresh yourself with the Skill Moves controls before embarking on the harder of these challenges.
Bronze Level
Navigate your way through gates and boxes. To get more points try to get the ball over the bars resting on poles while you go under using skill moves by doing different combinations with RS. Also try flicking the RS while holding RT to do a knock-on to get the ball under the bars resting on cones as you go over. Face Up dribbling RT + LT will be useful to go around the boxes.
In this drill you start in your own goal area. There are three gates in front of you. You need to go through the first two forwards then backwards again before going forwards through the first gate again, then through and back through the third gate, before going backwards then forwards through the second gate and finally through the third gate again. The arrows will show you the way. Do this as quickly as you can.

Next try to rainbow flick the ball over the high bar you pass under before going through another gate. Then flick the ball under the low bar with a knock-on whilst jumping over it. Then dribble through the six boxes following the arrows and trying not to knock the water bottles off the top of those boxes which happens when you bump into them.

Then at the end you then take a shot at the goal, hopefully getting it past the keeper for more points.

You start with 1 minute on the clock and you need to get 7,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how quickly you go through the gates and boxes and also with your shot at the end, if you hit a target (1,000). You will also get a bonus for any time you have left over at the end. You lose points for knocking water bottles off of the boxes (-200) or knocking over the bars.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Silver Level
In this drill you will be racing against a player cutout as you pass through the gates. To sprint press RT. You will be awarded points if you are ahead of the player cutout when crossing a gate. You will lose points if the player cutout is ahead of you. Keep in mind sprinting means you will touch the ball further which makes the ball harder to control.
This drill is mainly sprinting through gates and trying to stay ahead of the player cutout on the rail in the background. There are eight gates before you make it to the far penalty area where there are two gates before travelling back through the other bit of the course in a straight line, using knock-on to get the ball under the low bars as you hurdle over the top.

Try and angle your run for the next gate to make it easier for you.

You start with 30 seconds on the clock and you need to get 5,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for getting through the gates before the cutout (400). You will also get a bonus for any time you have left over. You lose points when you go through gates behind the player cutout (-100). You also lose points if you knock over those low bars (-500 each).
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Gold Level
Use LS to dribble around the moving player cutouts without hitting them. You will have to time your moves to successfully evade the player cutouts. After passing around the last player, you will see a defender and a goalkeeper. Beat them and score.
This drill is an obstacle course of sorts. You have a narrow area highlighted on the pitch which you must go through before facing a goalkeeper and defender to try and score. The first part involves you passing through 9 player cutouts on rails. If you go through these carefully using Face Up dribbling (LT + RT) they should be no problem. Once through these go around the cones in the centre circle as quickly as possible, before you enter another area with player cutouts on rails, this time moving from side to side. In between them are a couple of cardboard boxes too with water bottles on top. Avoid these.

After that you are into the penalty area with a defender and keeper. Try to skill them and score.

You start with 30 seconds on the clock and you need to get 17,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on getting past the cutouts, defender and goalkeeper successfully and for dribbling through the cones quickly. You get bonus points for any time you have left on the clock. You lose if you exit the highlighted area, or if you knock down a player cutout.
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Skill Challenge
Try to complete this course as quickly as possible using all the dribbling techniques you've learned in all previous drills. You will also need to 'Protect the ball' from a defender by holding LT. Once you have successfully protected the ball the next gate will be activated. To pass between extremely close cones try holding RB from both stand and jog to experiment with Precision Dribbling. Best of Luck!
This is an obstacle course. It starts similar to the silver challenge in that you run through gates trying to stay ahead of the player cutout on rails. After that section is a dribbling around moving player cutouts area similar to the silver drill in the 5/13 Dribbling section.

Then dribble the ball to the next section. As you enter a defender comes. All you need to do is hold LT so he is at your back (2,000 points) before he'll leave you to move to the next section where you need to dribble through a tight set of cones without knocking then or the moving bottle between them over.

Next is a section that you enter where you need to keep the ball away from the defender long enough for the exit gate to slide along its sliders to enter into the area so you can exit.

Next dribble through the moving gate following the way the arrows are directing you, and making sure to take your time not to hit the boxes and bottles around them otherwise a defender will be activated making your life harder.

There are 2 minutes on the clock at the beginning. You have 5 attempts for the defender sections. You get points for completing the sections of the obstacle course. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 75,000 points.

7/13 Lob Pass

Lob Pass
Develop your ability to play accurate lob passes at various distances, and learn to use the bouncing lob. Once you've mastered the lob pass, use your skills to rally in the Skill Challenge.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Long Passing, Crossing and Curve attributes.
Bronze Level
In this drill use LS to aim your lob pass, and X to power it up. You will have 8 attempts to knock over as many boxes and water bottles as possible. More points will be awarded by hitting a water bottle directly.
In this drill you have eight attempts to get as many points as possible by hitting the five elaborately stacked sets of boxes ahead of you. There are also water bottles perched on them. A ball will be fed to you and you have to hit the boxes by lobbing a pass from within the marked area.

You start with 1 minute on the clock and have 8 attempts. You need to get 6,000 to pass the challenge. You get 300 points per bottle or box you knock over. You get more for hitting the bottles directly (1,000). There is no bonus for time left at the end.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Silver Level
In this drill use LS to aim your lob pass, and X to power it up. The more you power up the lob pass the father it goes. Try to get points by lobbing the ball into a bin. Points will be awarded for getting close. To make it interesting, if you lob the ball into one of the front three bins your points will be multiplied consecutively, but if you miss they will go back to normal. Take advantage of the multiplier and then lob the ball into one of the bins in the back of the field for a high score.
In this drill you have to lob the ball into the bins laid ahead of you. There are six sets of bins. There is one set of three laid out in front of you (worth 400 points) that you can use RB + X to get the ball into, or a normal lob with not a lot of power which may be easier. This is also how you trigger the multiplier.

Behind those are five sets of nine bins, arranged across two highlighted areas. Getting the ball to drop into one of the outer bins of those sets is worth 1,000 for the nearest set, 2,000 for the next nearest, 3,000 for the next, 4,000 for the next and 5,000 for the furthest. If you get it into the central bin of the sets of nine then you get double this score. Once you have got the ball into a bucket of that set the buckets get blacked out so that the points go down to 1,000 and 2,000. This is to encourage you to try for each of the set of buckets.

If you miss the bins altogether but the ball comes to rest in the nearest highlighted area you get 100 points. If it comes to rest in the furthest are you get 200 points. In addition for a near-miss you get 500 points on top.

If you lob the ball out of these areas altogether you get 0 points.

You start with 9 attempts and no time limit and you need to get 20,000 points to pass the challenge.
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Crossbar Challenge! Try to hit the crossbar with a lob pass using X. You will have 8 attempts to hit the bar. If you hit it, you'll have to try from a bit further back, but you'll get a few extra attempts. If you hit any of the water bottles you will also get extra attempts.
In this drill you start in a highlighted area inside the penalty area where you have to lob a shot to try and hit the bar. Also underneath the bar are three player cutouts with water bottles balanced on their heads. You can try and hit those water bottles if you prefer, but will not be moved back. If you successfully hit the bar then you move to another highlighted area which is a little further from the goal, and with each successful hit of the crossbar you keep moving further out.

You start with 8 attempts and 3 minutes 20 on the clock and you need to get 30,000 points to pass the challenge. For the first area you get 5,000 for hitting the bar, then from the next area you get 10,000 and so on. You also get points for how well you hit the bar, or if you hit a bottle (2,000) or one of the posts (4,000). Also on each successful attempt you get more attempts added to your initial 8, or however many you have remaining at that time.
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Skill Challenge
Use your lob pass to accumulate points by stringing together passes. Letting the ball bounce will increase the wall height. Use the targets and bucket to reduce the walls if you are in trouble.
For me this is the easiest skill challenge of all of them. It is like a three-way tennis match, but you have to use lobbed passes instead of a racquet to get the ball across the "net". The trick to this is to use the more accurate lobbed through balls (LB + Y) rather than the regular lobbed passes (X). This makes the challenge much easier and a good one to get Legendary on, and to pick up plenty of XP on too.

Points per lob start at 200/400 and go up by 200 each time you hit a lob before the ball bounces. If you do let the ball bounce in the area then the walls segmenting that area from the others will go up making your task harder. If this happens try to lob the ball in the central bucket to reduce all of them (and also to get 1 point), or just hit the target by the particular wall (1,000) you want to reduce, although the ball does not reset then so be ready.

Also if you go in a triangle rather than back to the player you received it from it is easier as the players will have recovered better from their last kick.

To get Legendary on this you need 25,000 points. Good luck.

8/13 Crossing

Crossing
Practice crossing, early crossing, low crossing and ground crossing, and then test your skills in match scenarios for high scores in the Skill Challenge.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Crossing, Long Passing and Curve attributes.
Bronze Level
In this drill, dribble into the zone and power up your cross by pressing X. Power it up less to hit the boxes at the near post. To hit the boxes at the top of the box, aim LS towards the edge of the box. Try to knock over as many boxes as possible in 8 attempts.
There are four elaborately stacked cardboard boxes in the penalty area. You need to dribble into the crossing zone which is the bit at the side of the penalty area between the touchline and the edge of the area. Then aim your cross. You alternate the side of the penalty area that you take your cross from.

You start with 8 attempts and have 50 seconds on the clock. You need to get 2,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for knocking over boxes (100 per box, plus a little more for hitting them direct).
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Silver Level
In this drill, use LS to aim your corner kick and X to power it up. The more you power up the cross the further it goes. To pass this drill, you will need to hit the 3 targets. For extra points, kick the ball inside the bin. You have 8 attempts and 1 minute to try this.
In this drill you have to take corners with the cross button. There are six rails in the area with things moving along them back and forth. On the nearest, the third nearest and the fifth nearest are big targets you should try and hit. When you hit them they disappear for the remaining corners. On the second and fourth rails are player cutouts that you should avoid. On the final bin is a bucket which you get points for hitting, or for getting the ball inside.

You start with 8 attempts and have 1 minute on the clock. You need to get 12,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how central you hit the targets. You also get points for hitting the bucket (500) or getting the ball inside the bucket (20,000). You lose points for hitting the player cutouts (-500).
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

If you double tap X your player will play a low cross. If you triple tap X he'll play a ground cross. For this drill your crossing assistance will be set to 'Manual'. You will have 90 seconds to get as many points as possible by scoring in the mini nets and hitting the moving target.

This time you have to run into the crossing zone and then hit in a cross. Because there is no limit to attempts try to hit the crosses quickly. In the middle are 5 mini nets on each side, plus a big target between the two sets.
You need to dribble into the crossing zone, similar to the bronze challenge, and cross into the box trying to get the ball into the goals, or to hit the target. Once a goal has been scored in, or the target hit it is greyed out and won't give you points if you score in it again. For the near goals you can use ground cross or a very soft cross.
You have 90 seconds on the clock and you need to get 8,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for scoring goals (1,000 each) and for hitting the target (1,000 plus an accuracy bonus).

In this drill, you will be doing early crosses and regular crosses to your teammates. To do an early cross press LB to aim and X to power your lob. Your teammates will make either a near post, a far post, or a holding run. You will get extra points for volleys and bicycle kicks.
This time you start in random areas that you need to take crosses from inside of. You are trying to pick out a fellow teammate. They are the ones in the yellow bibs. You are trying to avoid the defenders in the blue bibs.

Just be quick off of the mark because each situation doesn't give you much time to think. For the times you are not level with the penalty area you will need to do an early cross. Other times the ball will be moving so be prepared to run to get it too. There are also four targets in the goal, one in each corner, to try and hit with your shots for extra points.

You get points for the attacker connecting with the cross (200) and for scoring a goal (1,000+). Try the bicycle kicks etc. for more points.

To get Legendary on this you need 40,000 points. Good luck.

9/13 Defending

Defending
Practice your ability to tackle in different situations. Develop the ability to perfectly time your standing and slide tackles. Get ready for the tackling Skill Challenge and don't foul any opponent.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good Slide Tackle, Stand Tackle and Interceptions attributes. Also someone fast would be good as there is a lot of running from place to place to be done. Dani Alves or Jordi Alba (both of FC Barcelona) may be good.
Bronze Level
In this drill, you will have to use the slide tackle to get the ball away from each attacker. When close to an attacker press X to slide tackle and knock the ball away. Make sure you tackle the players inside the highlighted box, otherwise the drill will end. Time your tackles otherwise you will foul the player and the drill will end.
In this drill there is a highlighted box around the centre circle. There are four attackers with a ball at their feet. The fist attacker to jog will be the one at the top moving from left to right as he tries to make it out the other side of the box. Move to cut him off and slide across him from the front. Once he's been tackled the player at the top right will jog with the ball from top to bottom. Once he has been tackled the player in the bottom right will dribble across the box from left to right before the final player in the remaining corner moves from bottom to top. Just get your tackles in, then get up and run to the next player in a sort of diamond shape.

You start with 30 seconds on the clock. You need to get 2,000 points to pass the challenge. You get 200 points per tackle. You will also get a bonus for any time left at the end. If the player dribbles out the other side of the highlighted area the drill ends. Also if you foul the player the drill ends.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Just as you used a slide tackle to knock the ball away from the attacking team you will now be using the standing tackle. Press B to perform a standing tackle, make sure you tackle the players inside the highlighted box, otherwise the drill will end. Time your tackles otherwise you will foul the player and the drill will end.
In this drill there is the same highlighted box around the centre circle as before. There are four attackers with a ball at their feet. The fist attacker to jog will be the one at the top left moving from top to bottom. As you approach him he will feint either left or right so prepare for this so you can time and direct your standing tackle accordingly. Once he's been tackled the player at the top right will jog with the ball from right to left. Again he will feint when you are near to him so be ready. After him the player in the bottom right will dribble from bottom to top before the final player in the remaining corner moves from across the bottom. Just be ready for the feints and you should be fine.

You start with 20 seconds on the clock. You need to get 2,000 points to pass the challenge. You get 200 points per tackle. You will also get a bonus for any time left at the end. If the player dribbles out the other side of the highlighted area the drill ends. Also if you foul the player the drill ends.

In this drill you can use both standing and slide tackles to get the ball away from the attacking team. You get more points if you successfully tackle the ball before the attacker crosses the line at the edge of the box. The drill ends if you allow the attacker to dribble the ball out of bounds and if you tackle the attacker without any ball contact.
This time there are three coins situated outside the penalty area with 3 players standing at the nearest two, and 2 players at the furthest. The first player at the nearest cone will set off in his attempt to dribble the ball off the pitch. You need to intercept him. There are also three lines marked on the pitch that if he gets past you lose points. Once he is tackled the first player at the second cone will dribble to try and pass you, then the person at the far cone before going back to the first and so on.

You start with 50 seconds on the clock and you need to get 7,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for getting successful tackles in (1,000 if before the player has crossed any of the lines, then 800, 600 or 400 if they have crossed them). You lose points if the players dribble across the lines (-100), or if you miss with an attempted tackle (-100). If the player dribbles off the pitch without you stopping them the drill ends. Also if you foul the player the drill ends.

In this drill, try to tackle the attacker before they get to the edge of the box. Every time you tackle them they will move to the next starting position. Win the game by tackling all of them after they get to their final starting position but before they dribble into the box. Time your tackles as the attackers will try to evade you. The earlier you tackle the opponent, the more points you will get.
In this drill there are five dashed lines painted across the pitch. At the beginning there are 6 players behind the last one of these. They will try to dribble to cross the line furthest from them and you need to tackle them to prevent them doing this. Once they have been tackled the next time they dribble will be from the next line and so on as they keep getting a starting position nearer to the line they need to dribble over. When you tackle them from their final position they are out and you only have the remaining players to deal with. The order the players run in is completely random. You will not be able to tackle every single runner as it is impossible to cross the pitch in such a short space, especially near the end if the two far dribblers follow each other, so pick and choose your battles.

There is no time limit on this. The challenge ends when you tackle each of the six dribblers 4 times. It may be worth choosing a fast defender from a weaker team so that you face weaker, and slower, dribblers (as they will be of a similar quality to the player you choose).

You get points for each successful tackle, you lose points for each player that crosses the final line (-300).

To get Legendary on this you need 16,000 points. Good luck.

11/13 Goalkeeping

Goalkeeping
Learn how to time your diving when saving penalty kicks and during 1 on 1 situations. Practice your drop kicks and goalkeeper throws. Combine your positioning and diving skills to protect the wall of boxes in the Skill Challenge.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good GK Diving, GK Reflexes and GK Positioning. Because you can't select a goalkeeper as the arena player it will revert to the number one goalkeeper of that team.
Bronze Level
In this drill, you will be saving Penalty Kicks. Use LS to position your goalkeeper before the back. Use RS to dive. The earlier you press RS, the further your keeper will dive, and the more change you will have to save a ball near to the posts. Press RS at the last moment for more coverage near the centre of the goal.
In this drill you control the keeper and are facing seven penalties. For the first four you will see the aiming indicator of the attacker so you will know where they are hitting the ball. For the last three you will have to guess.

For the first four it is a good idea to walk across the line towards where the attacker is aiming. The only issue with this is if they do a stutter step penalty and send it far the other way. Then when the shot comes in, time your dive to either do a far dive, or a near dive.

For the last three you may want to dive after the ball has been kicked and hope that it is central.

You will face 7 attempts and there will be 1 minute 30 on the clock. You need to get 3,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for saves. You get 2,000 for your first save in a sequence, 4,000 for your second save in a sequence, 6,000 for your third save in a sequence, etc. The sequence will be broken if you let in a goal, but not if the striker misses the goal. You lose points if you concede a penalty (-2,000). There is no bonus for the time left at the end.

In this drill, you will perform goalie drop kicks and goalie throws at the targets/boxes on the field. To perform a goalie drop kick press X and to perform a Goalkeeper throw press A. The more boxes you knock over the more points you get.
In this drill you start with the ball in your hands within the area. In front of you, some distance away, are targets and boxes to hit. There are two sets of targets, each behind a player cutout wall, and there are five stacks of boxes, each behind a wide and low box barrier at the front that you aren't meant to hit.

To do well at this challenge you need to use kicks rather than throws. Apart from that it is all about direction and power. Go for the targets first, then the boxes. For the boxes try to hit them low in the stack so that you knock more boxes down and get more points. However this risks you hitting the barrier in front of them. Once you've hit a set of boxes they disappear so that you can't hit that stack again, even if you only managed to dislodge only one box.

You start with 10 attempts and have 2 minutes on the clock. You need to get 6,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points for hitting the targets (1,500), and for knocking over the boxes (200 per box). You lose points for hitting the player cutout walls (-200), and for hitting the barriers in front of the stacks of boxes (-500). There is no bonus for any attempts you have left, or any time you have left at the end.

This is a 1 on 1 drill against 8 different attackers. Each attacker will try to score on you. The next attacker will be activated after a save, goal or if the ball goes out of bounds. You will get points for making saves or collecting deflecting balls out of bounds. You will lose points for every goal they score. To make a save you can use RS or B. To dive at feet press X and to position yourself hold LB.
This time there three cones outside the area, with 3 attackers behind the right and middle cones, and two attackers behind the left cone. They will take it in turns, starting from right to left then back again, to dribble towards the goal and try and score. You need to try and save the ball. The best thing to do is narrow the angle and try to not let them dribble around you. Also watch out that you don't get chipped.

You get up to 2,000 points per save, and 100 points if the shot from the attacker doesn't go in. You also sometimes get points for getting behind a shot even if it goes in. You lose points (-500) for each goal you concede. You need to get 5,000 points to pass the challenge.

In this drill, many balls will be launched at you from different positions. Use your positioning skills LS and diving skills RS to protect the wall of boxes inside the net. You will have 80 seconds to save as many balls as you can.
This time you are in goal and there are three near ball feeders, one just behind and four far ball feeders. In the goal is a wall of boxes. Once all the boxes have been hit the wall will be replaced.

Each ball feeder will fire in shots at you. The ball feeder in the centre just behind the nearest three only fires in chip shots so for that one go back to the line and jump up to save. For the rest of the feeders try to get behind the ball and prevent the ball from going in and hitting the boxes. Also try not to dive backwards into the goal as you'll knock the boxes down. As the skill challenge goes along the shots will come in quicker.

You get points for saves (1,200). You lose points for conceding a goal (-500 or -750 for a bad one that you should really have saved) and for the boxes being knocked down (-5 per box). Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 21,000 points.

12/13 Free Kicks

Free kicks
Curl the ball over, around or under, and learn the mechanics of taking a Free Kick. Learn to use layoff players and dummy runs with Tactical Free Kicks, and in the end do as much destruction as you can in the Skill Challenge.
For these challenges you need to choose someone with good FK Accuracy, Shot Power and Curve attributes.
Bronze Level
Use LS to aim your FK before you power up. Press B for a curled FK or LB + B for a driven FK. The longer you hold B the harder and higher your shot will go. While powering up move LS to add spin. Move it to the sides for left and right curl, up and down for top and back spin, and in between for combinations of side and top or back spin. Extra points will be awarded if you pass the ball over the wall.
In this drill there are four targets in the goal, one in each of the four corners of the goal. You are positioned outside the area and you need to hit them. In between you and the goal is a player cutout wall moving along a rail to make things harder for you.

For the top ones aim and press B with the correct amount of power for your player. For the bottom ones you may want to use the driven FK as these go across the floor. To get it up and over the wall use top spin by pressing LS up while powering up.

You start with 8 attempts and have 2 minutes on the clock. You need to get 10,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how much power you use (the more power, the more points) and how central you hit each target (the more central, the more points). You get points for hitting the target after hitting the ball over the wall (1,000). You will also get a bonus for any attempts you don't use and the time left at the end. You lose points for hitting the player cutout wall (-100).
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Silver Level In this drill, try to curl the ball around, over, or fire it under the wall and hit as many targets as you can in as few attempts and as little time as possible.
This time there is a static wall in the way of the goal, and 6 targets in the goal instead of four. The wall is elevated so you can use driven free kicks under the wall for the targets on the floor. For the top ones use spin and power.

You start with 9 attempts and 2 minutes on the clock and you need to get 7,500 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how much power you used (the more power, the more points) and how central you hit each target (the more central, the more points). You will also get a bonus for any attempts you don't use and the time left at the end. You lose 100 points a time if you hit the wall.

For the Gold drill you have some teammates at your disposal. Use LT to control the 2nd kicker, and RB to control the third kicker. To run a player over the ball press B and then press A before you finish powering up. Experiment with different ways to pass and score from the dead ball to earn bonus points and activate targets.
This time there are four different scenarios that you need to hit targets in the goal from.

The first you need to do a layoff pass (A) with the second man (LT). The main kicker then shoots from in the highlighted area to the two targets in the goal on the right.

Once that scenario is passed the second one appears. This is similar. You can pass the ball (A) using the second man again, into the highlighted area, and shoot at the two targets at the left.

The third scenario there is a yellow arrow pointing to the highlighted area you can shoot from. You need to run a man into it so that you can pass to him and he can shoot. You can run over the ball with your first kicker (B, A whilst you are powering up), and he will go into the correct area. Then use the third man (RB) to pass the ball to him. The defender will close your receiver down so be quick to hit one of the three targets. Also you may be outside the highlighted area if the pass is too powerful in which case dribble back into it and then shoot.

For the fourth and final scenario there is a yellow arrow to the right that you need to run a player into so they can shoot. One way you can do this is to have your second man run over the ball, and play it to him with the third man, then shoot and hit one of the three targets.

These are not the only ways to activate targets though so experiment if you want.

You start with 9 attempts and 1 minute 15 seconds on the clock and you need to get 6,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points by hitting the targets. You will also get a bonus for any attempts you don't use, and any time you have left over. You lose points (-200) for hitting the wall.

Skill Challenge
Try to clear as many boxes and do as much damage as you can with your free kicks. You have unlimited attempts to clear the goal in the allotted time. If you clear all the boxes they will reset so you can score more points.
This time there a wall in front of you and lots of cardboard boxes stacked up in the goal. The white boxes act as multipliers so you may want to go for the top corner white boxes first, followed by the bottom corner white boxes. After that you can get rid of the remaining boxes. Then once all the boxes are cleared and a fresh wall of boxes is put up so repeat the process by going for the white boxes first. You lose points for hitting the wall (-250). You have two minutes 50 seconds or so. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 50,000 points.

13/13 Penalties

Penalties
Learn about aiming and powering up penalties. Learn how to stutter step or take a chipped penalty. Then use those skills to fool the keeper and knock down the wall of boxes in the Skill Challenge.
For this set of challenges you need to choose someone with good Penalties, Shot Power and FK Accuracy attributes.
Bronze Level
To take a penalty, start powering up using B when the composure meter is in the green. If you miss the composure sweet spot, or over power your shot it will become less accurate. Once you've started powering up you can use LS to aim your penalty. If you hold the LS too long in one direction you run the risk of putting your penalty wide. Try to hit as many targets as you can in 12 attempts.
In this drill there are ten targets in the goal, and you need to hit them in any order. For all of them look at your composure meter at the bottom and the line that keeps moving back and forth across it. You need to time your pressing of the shoot button so that this is in the middle, or the green. After that a blue aiming circle (the aiming indicator) will be in the goal. Direct that to a target but as you move it towards the edge of the goal, it will slide quicker so be careful you don't slide it too far.

If you don't get your composure meter right though, or if you hold B too long then the blue aiming circle will be a massive red circle, and you will have no chance of hitting a target.

You start with 12 attempts and you need to get 7,300 points to pass the challenge. There is no time limit so take your time. You get points based on how much power you use (the more power, the more points) and how central you hit each target (the more central, the more points). You will also get a bonus if you have any spare attempts at the end.
Congratulations, you reached the Bronze target and unlocked Silver! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Silver Level
In this drill, you'll need to chip the ball over the boxes and into the bins. To perform a chipped penalty hold LB and power up with B. The aiming indicator will disappear after your third attempt. Good luck!
In this drill there are four bins in a goal. You need to chip your penalties into them. This time the aiming indicator will only show for the first three attempts. After that you'll have to guess where you are aiming the penalty. Therefore I recommend doing the two outer bins first followed by the back bin, as the near bin is probably the easiest to get the ball into without the aiming indicator.

You start with 11 attempts and 1 minute 45 seconds on the clock and you need to get 5,000 points to pass the challenge. For each bin you get the ball in you get 500 points, except the back bin which is worth 2,000 points. You also get bonus points for the amount of time left, plus the number of attempts you didn't use. Therefore to get maximum bonus try and shoot the first time the composure meter is in the green.
Congratulations, you reached the Silver target and unlocked Gold! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.


up
Gold Level
In this game you'll need to use the stutter step penalty kick in order to activate the targets. To do this, power up a shot using B, then during the run up power up using B again. This will cause your player to stutter step and allow you to change your mind on where you want to aim. Once you do a stutter step in your run up some of the targets will activate. You have 8 attempts to hit as many as you can.
There are eight targets in the goal, 4 to the left and 4 to the right. The aiming indicator will disappear after your third attempt.

Because this game is all about changing the direction of your penalty shot the targets that get highlighted are always the ones on the opposite side of where you aimed before doing your stutter step (the targets on the same side will remain greyed-out). Therefore just move your aim a little to one side, do your stutter step and then aim towards the now highlighted targets on the other side.

You start with 8 attempts and you need to get 2,000 points to pass the challenge. You get points based on how much power you use (the more power, the more points) and how central you hit each target (the more central, the more points). There is no time limit.
Congratulations, you reached the Gold target and unlocked the Skill Challenge! You can retry for a higher score, or advance to the next level and drill.

Skill Challenge
Try to clear as many boxes and do as much damage as you can with your penalties in the time allotted. If you clear all the boxes they will reset so you can score more points. The aiming indicators will disappear after your third attempt.
This time there is are two player cutouts moving across the goal, and you have to shoot penalties past them to hit the wall of cardboard boxes in the goal. The white boxes in the four corners of the wall of boxes act as multipliers to whatever else you hit in that kick so you may want to go for the top corner white boxes first, followed by the bottom corner white boxes. After that you can get rid of the remaining boxes by going for the bottom boxes, because they will knock down the ones above, and by using power (although not too much of course otherwise your penalty will shoot over the bar). Then once all the boxes are cleared and a fresh wall of boxes is put up repeat the process by going for the white boxes first. You lose points for hitting the cutouts (-500). You have two minutes so it is a good idea to shoot your penalties as soon as the composure meter is in the green. Good luck.

To get Legendary on this you need 20,000 points.

It would be more useful if I had Xbox 360, not only keyboard. That's the first and last comment anyway! Author, enjoy this!
