No Goal for You!

Goal Line Clearance  

Credit for this goes to neeker75

Firstly, choose to control a weak team. Teams in the npower League 2, for example, are usually on one-star. Use any of them. Choose a strong team as your opponent - Manchester City, Barcelona, Liverpool - it doesn't matter. 

Secondly, and very importantly, go to control settings and turn ''Auto-Switching'' to ''Manual''. By doing so, the game doesn't auto-switch you to a random player near the ball, which allows you to be in full control of the player you need to do the goal-line clearance.

Thirdly, switch difficulty to ''Legendary''. 

Now, what you need to do is pretty simple. Once you win the ball, run back towards your goal and kick it out for a corner. When play resumes, quickly press  to switch to a player near the goal, and have him run to the far post. With auto-switching turned off, the game doesn't switch you away, so you're safely tucked at the far post.

What happens next is all about luck. When the corner swings in, hope that the opponent connects with a header/shot etc. that flies past your goalkeeper and towards the far post. Press  immediately to clear it if it does, and the achievement should unlock.

It may take a few attempts, but it's easier than waiting for a shot to come in (usually leading to a goal rather than a clearance because the opponents are just too quick), or trying to concede a freekick. Corners are easier to concede and if you fail with the clearance, you could concede another corner pretty quickly as well.

no b/c the opponent has to hit the ball towards goal that will score and you need to clear it

Ya I know I tried it with my own player and he just ran it into the net but I actually did this the right way where they shot and my player jumped in and headed it away in my first game on ultimate team but no achievement. Is it game mode or difficulty specific? I also chipped the keeper but didn't get the cheeky achievement.

same here, not sure if you have to be playing in a certain mode, first time I thought maybe it was because i simply just blocked it and didn't kick it out, but i managed a second time and kicked it right off and nothing :(

Had to do this twice to get the achievement, the one I got it on just hit me on the line and gained the achievement whereas the first I actually cleared it rather than it hitting me but hey ho I got it

I finally got this! My brother was playing with me in the other controller. It was uruguay vs lazio and i sent the lazio gk all the way up to my brothers box and i stayed still and my brother got the ball. He passed it all the way up and ran with luis suarez(hes fast) try to get up to the box b4 the keeper does. My defender just waited in the line and my brother chipped it so i have time to react and i headed it out like a boss. The son of a gun popped out 5 seconds later. Dont get mad if you cant get it right away cus my and my brother tried. It for 20 min

It's really pure luck. I got it on a free kick in Seasons.

Super Easy!! Try this!

Go play Be A Pro. Select a Defender. Set the difficulty to Legendary. Pick a crappy team and have them play a Barca or Real Madrid ( A really good team). Set the camera to End to End.

Stand in the goal and keep holding "Y" to make the goalie leave. Then, since it is on Legendary the cpu will just fire shots at you. Block one and you're all set!!

Hope this helps!

I have done this 3 times two from corners, one of which it hit me, the other when i headed it from the top corner and the other from open play when xavi slide the ball and Clark on the line booted the ball away (the ball was 20% over the line. And still no achievement. One on Fifa Ultimate Team, One on Career Mode and the final one on Kick Off and nothing... I give up!

I twice have cleared this of the line with headers out from corners and no achievement..but a couple of days ago i got this in an online cup game, my opponent took a shot after taking the ball around my goalkeeper, it was quite a soft shot and my last defender was able to get to the ball about 3 or 4 yards infront of the line and i cleared the ball..about 5 seconds later pops up the achievement, just keep playing the game, it will eventually come.

I got this through practice match. 2 defenders- me and goalkeeper vs 6 attackers just keep on pressing Y so the goalkeeper will come out and go for the ball and stay behind him on the goal line. you know the rest

Did this about three times for like #16 and didn't get it - Accrington Stanley ended up dominating Barca and beat them 2-1!

Did it #21 way and got it in about five seconds! Cheers!

After much stress and frustration I finally got this. Then my friend came over to my house and got it on my second account by accident.

My tip to getting this achievement is to have your opponent set up a custom tactic for corners where the opponent put all their players in the goal keepers goal. Your players would then follow the attacking players and form their own lines. The opponent should then cross and head. Your player should head it away.

Tip make sure that the attacking player places as many players into the goal keeper's goal using the custom tactics. Don't make the players do runs just record them staying in the box.
