They Think It’s All Over… 30
Win a match in Football

Simply win your first game of Football. This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. If you’re really rubbish, just ask your friend to let you win.

Win a match in Football (Champion difficulty)

The key here is possession. The longer you keep the ball without losing it, the less chance the computer has of taking the ball and scoring. When you’re passing the ball around, remember to pass into space. If a player is marked and you pass to them, they will more likely than not, get tackled and you will become subject to a counter-attack. Try and shoot when you feel confident that you’ll get the shot on target, as the more goals you can score, the better. Try and build up a good lead, and if you keep up the offense you may even get “Golden Boots” at the same time. When it comes to defending, make yourself as big as possible as the computers favour passing to the side, not between your legs, and this means you’ll have to move less to block passes. If the computer does get a chance to shoot, try and adopt the stance mentioned for “Golden Gloves” and bear in mind that with it being Champion difficulty, there will be a fair bit of stretching for the tricky corner shots. After the match is finished, if you’ve beaten your opponent, then your Achievement will unlock.

Hat-trick Hero 15
Score a perfect hat-trick (1 header, 1 left foot and 1 right foot goal) in a match in Football

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online. It requires you to score three goals, one with your left foot, one with your right foot and one with your head. Obviously, the one with each foot should be pretty easy to do, as you simply need to get the ball into some space where you can shoot, and take a crack at it. Once you’ve scored with one foot, use the other. For a header, however, you need to get the ball into a position where it can be crossed; either attempt to cross the ball (which sometimes works, and sometimes doesn’t depending on your position). The best way to score your header is to get a corner and to cross it in that way. Keep an eye out for a marker to appear by your head, as this will indicate that you are able to header the ball. Position yourself by the marker, so that when the balls crossed in, you can header it. Hopefully, after all three goals you should have netted yourself the Achievement.

… It Is Now! 15
Win a match by scoring a goal in the last 10 seconds in Football

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online.This should come through natural progression with football, as you will constantly be trying to score goals up until the last second. Just keep intercepting your opponents passes and keep passing your ball around the field until you opportunity to shoot arises. The goal can be scored by any means, whether it is a shot, header or even a penalty. If you’re worried about taking your time to net this and being tackled, simply play against a friend and ask them to let you score at the end without any opposition.

Beat the Gull-keeper 15
Scare the bird from the crossbar using the ball in Football

This can either be done against a computer on any difficulty or against a friend locally or online.This one should occur through natural gameplay, however here are a few tips to ensure that you get it. This can be If you’re trying to The seagull seems to perch on the upper-left of the goalpost, so aiming in the top left hand corner seems to work best. Bear in mind however that he will not always be there, so keep an eye out when shooting to ensure that if he’s there, that you get him. To scare him, you can either score a goal or miss; it doesn’t matter which as long as the ball travels in his general direction, enough to be deemed a threat!

I have included a video below to illustrate:

Golden Gloves 25
Score 100 or more in the Super Saver Football mini-game

This minigames is exactly as the name suggests. It will require you to be in goal and block shots. Like with some of the other minigames, it is life-based, so you have a few chances to mess up; it doesn’t have to be perfect. Like with all other Kinect football matches, a ball prompt will appear to let you know where the striker will be shooting, and you must use your body to cover the shot. A good stance to adopt is like an actual goalkeeper; legs slightly apart, arms bent at a 90 to the side. This should leave you with minimum movements needing to be made, simply a few small side to side movements and a lot of up and down movements with your arms. Try to avoid using your feet, as tempting as it might be, as it can throw you off balance a little. Be warned, the further you advance, the faster the striker will shoot, however if you save lots of shots in a row, you will be rewarded with an extra life, so you should easily have enough for a score of 100+.

I have included a video below to illustrate.

Sharp Shooter 25
Score 80 or more in the Target Kick Football mini-game

A series of targets will appear behind the goalkeeper in the goal. You have 40 seconds on the clock to clear as many targets as possible. This Achievement is actually not as difficult as it seems, provided that you can use both feet to strike a ball with. There is very little delay from one ball to the next so keep shooting, as the quicker you clear each set of targets, the more time you’ll have left for the next set. Also, for each set you clear, the game will reward you with a 5 second bonus. If the goalkeeper gets in the way, just strike one ball in the opposite side of the net, then the next at the target at they have no chance of saving it then as they’re on the wrong side of the goal. Just keep firing as quick and as accurate shots as possible and you should get this Achievement with very little hassle.

I have included a video below to illustrate:

Golden Boots 15
Score 5 goals or more in a match in Football (Professional or Champion difficulty)

Once again, this is not actually as difficult as it seems, as long as you can keep up the shots. Quick reactions are a key here, so that you can pick your passes relatively quickly before the computer has time to react to them. Try and, like you would in a real game, pass to someone in space – especially when it comes to shooting as you’ll have a little bit more time to place your shot. If you lose the ball and have to defend, spread yourself out and make yourself as big as possible. The computer favours passing either side of you, rather than trying to pass between your legs, so the more spread out you are, the easier it is to cover these sides without having to sidestep too much. With a bit of patience, this one should come over time. Obviously, playing a professional difficulty opponent will be easier, but this could come just as easily against a Champion difficulty opponent, as you will need to score to much as possible and keep the ball away from them as much as possible in order to win.
