FIFA 09 Achievements

Bend it like a pro

Score from a free kick in a match   
This achievement can be quite challenging, even with a boosting partner or 2nd controller. The way I managed to get it was too aim for the top corner nearest to the keeper (so you dont have to worry about putting the ball over the wall). When shooting, hold , and fill your power bar about 1/4 of the way up. If it doesn't work first time, just keep trying, it'll come eventually. You can also unlock the "In Off" achievement by doing this, just as I did.

You are given a freekick when the opposing teams fouls you anywhere on the pitch apart from the penalty area.

I picked Manchester United for this one, and set Accrington (Coca Cola league 2) as opponent. Then I switched side to Accrington and began to do some ugly tackles in order to give Man. Utd. free kicks. Once they got a free kick in a good position, I switched over to control them again. After a while I managed to score on a perfect free kick with Cristiano Ronaldo, just outside the penalty area. However, this method didn't work because I didn't get the achievement:(

Choose a bad team, like Accrington, use 2 controllers. Have the controller who is controlling Accrington swap the Goalkeeper with a substitute outfield player they will usually have a rating of 7 making this really easy.
