My guess is that this is related to the "Get Physical" achievement, but in this case you actually shield to ball out of play, while in "Get Physical" you just use strength to gain control of the ball midfield.

Anyone know how to do this? It would be quite useful for the future.

I'm hoping I can boost for this. I will have my friend just pass the ball toward my goal line and then I'll have a defender just run over and shield it out of play...only problem is I don't know how to shield. I'm hoping to do the creeping on the down low achievement in a similar way. If anyone would like to boost for either of these send me a message. My gamertag is Knaussenheimer.

This is actually really easy to do:

Just go towards one of the corners and hold LT and RT at the same time. The tackler will poke at the ball and you will shield it. Got it after like 2 tries.

To all those that cannot unlock this achievement:

Follow what #7 said (go towards corner and hold LT+RT).

But, once the ball goes out DO NOT let go of LT+RT, keep holding the triggers until achievement pop up. I let go when ball go over the line and didn't get achievement, but I held on to it next time and I got the achievement.

Hope this helps!
