Score a Diving Header  

This achievement is easier than it sounds. You can start a kickoff match on amateur. Choose a team who has a player with good heading such as Bayern Munich(Gomez) or Athletico Madrid(Falcao). Then edit CPU customisation by pausing the match. Then go to settings and then game settings. Finally go to CPU game customisation. Change sprint speed, acceleration, GK ability, Positioning: Run Frequency, Line height and put first touch control to 100. This makes the CPU beyond useless even on legendary. Cross the ball to your striker and use + to shoot. You should get it in a few tries.

I think i did this one(not sure cuz of early access) on my first cross as fabregas dove for it and scored. It seems so far that if you press B for a header and the player is not there, he will lung or dive for it.

I got this while playing a buddy head to head (non-online), My guess is you can boost these

I just performed my first diving header. is there any specific buttons you can press to do a diving header cuz the only one I've done went right at the goalkeeper.

If you hold LT and B at the same time, your player will do a diving header at almost every cross. Just hit LT+B at the cross instead of just B and you'll get it in no time.

Was kind of easy when you know what you are doing.
Thanks Tnugent1 for the tip.
His tip works like a charm, but if your playing alternate controls.
Use X instead of B and you will get it.
I did this one on semi-pro and double tapped X just outside the box to cross.
And then Hold LT+X to do header.

For this , best is to use Falcao from Atletico Madrid. He has awesome heading skills. Usually dives for header after you give a cross from the side

I got this randomly when I was playing as TFC against Man.U. Can't believe I did it with such a crappy team against such an amazing one.

You will do a diving header if the ball is just out of your players reach. I did this one pretty easily, got in quite a lot of space with ozil with real madrid, waited for some backup to arrive, and did a lofted through ball across goal( LB + B). This but the ball in the air and the keeper was out of position so it was an empty goal. Just before my player was about to run on to it i super cancelled (LT + RT) so he was a bit out of place and therefore had to dive for it when I pressed B

You could probably also put the CPU's speed and acceleration down to 0 so you can get past them and into some space

lofted through ball is (LB + Y) sorry.

oh and apparently if you hold down LT when shooting you do a "fancy" goal. But not sure if that includes diving headers

Surely the guide should say go to user customization? cpu customiazation makes the cpu beyond good not beyond useless

This was pretty easy. I got it with Aaron Lennon (off rebounded GK's hand and in) lol

Just keep playing any match (I played career), it'll eventually unlock. Although, I am a bit lucky because I rarely score from headers.
