FIFA 12 Achievements

Riding Bikes

Score with a bicycle kick  

While this achievement may sound hard, it's not really. I got it in my second match and it was my first achievement. A few tips to get this:

- Always hold  when attempting a bicycle kick.
- Give a cross to your attacker near the goal, try to get it just over him, then double press  or  (depending on your control settings) and your attacker should do a bicycle kick.
- Run to the edge of the box, turn around and start juggling the ball with . Now move your left stick away from your player and he should flick it up. Double press  or  to do the bicycle kick.
- Do an advanced rainbow flick (4 star skill move) and double press  or  to do the bicycle kick.

i reckon this will be all about luck, either that or they'll put a technique to perform this in the game

only ever scored 2 bicies in my fifa life. one with my vp (crimesy was a witness) and one with essien. both were when keepers were in their nets and not wondering off for a quick slash like #2s video

You can do an advanced rainbow flick and if it bounces in front of you it's guaranteed to do a bicycle kick. Just do it on amateur or something.

I've scored a few to be honest,but nearly all my goals come from the wings as i'm S*** at the skills. Guaranteed now i'm after scoring one it will take me all year to get this Cheevo. ha ha

Using RB(R1) while attempting a bicycle kick helps!! It puts some curve on the ball and will definitely help.

Comment #19 by hardycore
Saturday, September 24, 2011 @ 12:42:02 PM

If you're in the correct position to do the bicycle kick then double tap B(Shoot) and he should do it! But it doesnt always work, just a tip

Comment #21 by DragzZ
Tuesday, September 27, 2011 @ 07:10:37 AM

I just found a really easy way to get this! All you do is change all of the sliders in the game settings to benefit you (put the AI sliders down to 0 and turn your sliders up to 100) then go into a game with a skillful team, (I went Chelsea)run until you get just into the box then face the opposite way to the goal, juggle the ball, then flick it straight up. Once the ball is in the air shoot and aim for the goal and hopefully your character will do and overhead kick. I tried this twice and it worked both times =] Hope this helps

There's a video guide of it I made

Comment #23 by Nick1227
Tuesday, September 27, 2011 @ 10:18:10 AM

how do you flick it up in the air i mean i can juggle the bal with tapping lt/rb but how do i kick it up so i can try the bycicle kick?

Comment #24 by Goose1085
Tuesday, September 27, 2011 @ 10:48:16 AM

While juggling, use the Left Stick and push it away from your player. That should put the ball in the air. If you push the LS towards your player, he will flick it over his head and turn around.

@#21 Nice idea but i can't understand why people
would want to boost this Cheevo? The pure excitement you get
from scoring such a mint goal, then you add the 50G to it as well
will make some people shoot their load. Fair enough if
people try and try to get it but can't, but surely boosting
this Cheevo would take the fun away?

I got this today with Nani in my career mode...
Its pretty easy

Comment #28 by DragzZ
Wednesday, September 28, 2011 @ 08:48:32 AM

@26 I sort of aggree it is exciting when you score an overhead kick, especially in an online match but they can be particularly rare to achieve. I played FIFA 11 a lot and I only scored like 4-5 overheads over the year. That guide I made was just a fast way to get the achievement if they so choose to, and allready having the achievement doesn't really take away the happiness when you do score a legitimate one. There was no achievement for doing this last year and I think I still screamed every time I scored one! Haha

Comment #29 by bozie69
Thursday, September 29, 2011 @ 11:56:52 AM

oi you lot stop riding @2 if you played the demo you would know you control the keepers so its not his fault the guy he played to virtual controls on his own keeper and moved him press back button and you 100 % control the keepers while in 3rd half why rag him for it ??? good goal @ 2

Comment #30 by bozie69
Thursday, September 29, 2011 @ 12:00:36 PM

@ 16 theres a trait for your pro when you unlock it and some players from barca can do them with ease its alot easier to do a over head kick than in fifa 11 which was pure luck if any game player did one lol

Comment #31 by bozie69
Thursday, September 29, 2011 @ 12:05:47 PM

@21 that tip you just said is a good way to rank up ea xp on ledge mode too for your pro six hours play i was 89 pro and level 5 lmao

VERY SIMPLE & EASY achievement!!!

- chose a good 5star rated team and throw in the ball and push (LT + B)! That's all...

Comment #33 by Gallzy111
Saturday, October 01, 2011 @ 04:12:56 AM

Very easy achievement here!!! Played Fifa till PES10 then went to Pes -
But Fifa 10 I scored so many I didn't bother counting! Find it so annoying
when people go "oooohhhhhh what a goal" - me & my mate ( samg118 ) who is great
at Fifa too, got about 8 of them scored against him while playing me :D
Defo getting Fifa this year I think - just because of the achievements!
They are so much better than PES - it's just pissing me off with all the b***** '
become a legend achievements - I don't have the time do to them at all ( as I'm
at Uni ) so I think Fifa12 is a big winner for me this year :/

This is actually pretty easy to do. Did it twice in on game, unfortunately my pro was offsides when I did it with him. All you do is run down the wing down to the goal-line then cut in and cross it into the box. Most of the time your people will be facing the goal so when the cross comes in they'll be set up for a bicycle.

Comment #48 by xiTalentzHD
Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 01:28:50 AM

It's quite hard but after they get a corner run with some one acrobatic(rooney nani or messi ) I done it with messi just after the corner boot it up field to one of them and sprint to the box after that stop and do some keepy ups (facing away from goal) then flick it in front of you and they shud do a bicycle kick it might take a coupple of attempts :D

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 07:18:28 PM

@54 easiest way to do it is go on settings - user customization
and put shot power to 99 also put shot error to 0, then go on cpu customization
put there player speed and accelration to 0 also keeper ability to 0.

play a match on amateur get a skilled player stand at the edge of the penalty
box facing the half way line, start doin kick ups with RB and push up on the left
analog stick to kick the ball in the air, then push up and B at the same time
and the player should do a over head kick and score it, this is how i did it and
did it 1st time, hope it helps you.

Comment #56 by MMIIKKEE
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 10:51:42 PM

the way i almost got this achieve was just having a break away using real madrid as they have pretty good speed, then crossing the ball, then holding LT and B if there is no cloose defenders to you aand it SHOULD work. or else try LB if LT does not work. Good luck.

#22 work great!!!

Comment #60 by Havok 104`
Wednesday, December 07, 2011 @ 03:42:02 PM

Here is how I did it:

I set the sliders (pass error, sprint, acceleration, shot error) of the CPU to either 0 or 100 to make the CPU garbage. I did the opposite to the player sliders except to the passing, I left the pass speed at 50%. Then I chose to play with Chelsea against a 1 star team (any will do). I chose Chelsea because both Torres and Drogba have high balance, jumping, agility and the fancy flicks trait.

You run past the defense with either player then at the top of the penalty area stop turn around and do the following:
1. Press and hold LT and tap RB continuously, the player will juggle the ball with his back to the net.
2. Flick the left thumb stick away from the net as your tapping RB (the player should flick the ball up) When the player flicks the ball up stop tappi

You need to play with Brazil against a lowly team. Brazilians love their flicks, kicks etc.

Easy 50G

Comment #78 by PyschoJ2456
Saturday, July 07, 2012 @ 08:00:27 PM

I did this playing as Bayern Munich. I put Muller as my striker and ribery as a LW in a 4-3-3 format. Ribery is a great crosser and Muller has enough flair for this to work. just cross the ball into the box and tap B to kick the ball. It will only work if the ball is behind the player not in front.

You can do this with anyone who is perferrably a great crosser and has the crossing trait and someone who has flair and finishing ability. (EX Messi and Iniesta.

It maybe a bit of luck that you get this, the more you try at it, the more difficult it seems to be as I got mine just playing career mode.

Comment #81 by l FuzionRapidz
Sunday, May 05, 2013 @ 02:17:47 AM

I did this simply by playing as Brazil, set up your opposition as AFC Wimbledon (worst team in the game). Put the settings on amateur and you shall get it easily.

You can do this by simply winning a corner. All you have to do is aim straight at the crossbar and curve it back towards the middle. Your target man waiting in the box will be Thiago Silva.

Thiago Silva is the one who's going to be getting the bicycle kick. Hold down LT and B (half power) Since its AFC Wimbledon you should pick out the Goalkeeper and find the back of the net.
