UEFA Euro 2008

UEFA Euro 2008 Achievement Guide

Guide By: Adam Miller
There are 48 achievements with a total of 1000 points.

Break the hoodoo10
Win a penalty shootout with England (Any Difficulty/solo only) (2) 
Just go to kick off, penalty shootout and put it on amateur. Its not hard and i would play against Germany to get the achievement above at the same time.
76 Shootout10
Like the Czechs in 1976, beat Germany in a penalty shootout (Any Difficulty/solo only) 
I would recommend playing as England to get a 2 for 1 achievement deal and get the "Break the hoodoo" achievement below at the same time. Just go to kick off, penalty shoot out and put it on amateur. Shouldnt take 2 minutes.
Pole Winner10
Play as Euzebiusz Smolarek of Poland vs Portugal and win (Any Difficulty/solo only) 
This has to be done on Be A Pro which i found out after wasting 10 minutes doing a normal match and getting nothing. You do have to be E. Smolarek and you do have to win but you can do it on amateur and your player does not have to be the one to score. Obvisouly the length doesn't matter but the longer the more chance you have of scoring.
Hat-trick Healy10
Score a hat-trick as David Healy of Northern Ireland vs Spain (Any Difficulty/solo only) 
Same deal as above, has to be on Be A Pro and you have to be D. Healy (he is the only star player on the team) and you have to score 3 goals. Put it on amateur and it shouldn't be difficult at all, i put it on 10 minutes thinking it might take me a while and i won 8-0. Set it to longer if your not confident.
Beat a champion10
Beat any previous winner of Euro on Pro level or above (solo only) (1) 
Previous winners of the UEFA EURO are:

1960: USSR
1964: Spain
1968: Italy
1972: West Germany
1976: Czechoslovakia
1980: West Germany
1984: France
1988: Netherlands
1992: Denmark
1996: Germany
2000: France
2004: Greece

Now seeing as there is no USSR, West Germany and Czechoslovakia you ave to beat one of the others and the obvious pick for me was last EURO's winners, Greece. You have to beat them on Pro which isnt ultra difficult but if you have been playing at Amateur it cold take a game or two to adjust. Just beat Greece and the achievement will unlock at the end of the game.
Conquer Europe10
Beat all 16 countries that have qualified for UEFA EURO 2008™ (Any Difficulty/solo only) 
The 16 countries that have qualified for the EUFA EURO 2008 finals are:

Group A
- Czech Republic
- Portugal
- Switzerland
- Turkey

Group B
- Austria
- Croatia
- Germany
- Poland

Group C
- France
- Italy
- Netherlands
- Romania

Group D
- Greece
- Russia
- Spain
- Sweden

You can beat them at any difficulty you want but i would recommend doing this after some of the other achievements as by then you would have already beaten half of these teams and there is no need to beat them again.
UEFA EURO 2004™ Final10
Beat Portugal with Greece on Semi-Pro Level or above (solo only) 
These ones are pretty straight forward, choose Greece against Portugal and it goes without saying Semi Pro why would you want to make it harder on yourself...

It has to be done on solo mode only as stated but it's not really difficult and you might find it easier to make the game as short as possible which is 4 minutes, so that you can score and change team formation to a defensive one if your having problems.
UEFA EURO 2000™ Final10
Beat Italy with France on Semi-Pro Level or above (solo only) 
Same as before but with you being France and the AI being Italy.
UEFA EURO 1996™ Final10
Beat Czech Republic with Germany on Semi-Pro Level or above (solo only) 
Same as before but with you being Germany and the AI being Czech Republic.
UEFA EURO 1992™ Final10
Beat Germany with Denmark on Semi-Pro Level or above (solo only) 
Same as before but with you being Denmark and the AI being Germany.
Captain Your Country10
Earn the captaincy in a full international in Captain Your Country mode (solo only) 
While playing through Captain your Country mode this will unlock, you have to play through until you get in the main team (not the B Internationals) and then earn the captaincy. To get captaincy just keep up you playing ratings during games, make sure yo9ur pass and dribble percentages are high and scoring goals helps the most. In between most games you will be able to read an article on your progress. You can get these achievements on amateur difficulty.
Inspirational Captain45
Qualify for UEFA EURO 2008™ as captain of a country which has never qualified (solo only) 
Again play through the Captain your Country mode and put it on amateur difficulty. Now though you have to pick a player in a team that has never qualified. The achievement will unlock after playing through all of your qualification games.

Teams that have never qualified are:

Albania
Andorra
Armenia
Azerbaijan
Belarus
Bosnia-Herz.
Cyprus
Estonia
Faroe Islands
Finland
Fyr Macedonia
Georgia
Iceland
Israel
Kazakhstan
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta
Moldova
Montenegro
N.Ireland
San Marino
Slovakia
Ukraine
Wales

My personal recomendation is Ukraine and they are the highest rated of all those teams.
Penalty taker15
Score from a penalty in Captain Your Country (solo only) 
The hard part for this achievement is getting a penalty, probably easier being a forward/striker. The difficulty should again be amateur and just dribble with one player just inside the oppositions box and after a few tries the other team will get annoyed and slide tackle you and you will get a penalty. Then just score it, pick a corner and try to hold the power to about half a bar because you don't want to risk hitting it to hard but you don't wanna hit it to lightly either. You will need to be the penalty taker which you can earn and once you are the captain you have access to team management. A striker would obviously be easier and putting attributes on finishing but that wont help the hard part of getting the penalty.
Free Kick taker25
Score directly from a free-kick in Captain Your Country (solo only) 
Again the hard part is getting a free kick although these will come more often than penalties. While playing through Captain you Country mode you should get a few free kicks not far outside the box that you can score from. The easiest way to score would obviously be on amateur mode and just try hitting it over the wall into the top corner. From about 30 yards out is probably easiest to get it up and down and score and hold the bar down about one third. You will also need to be the free kick taker obviously which you will earn and once you are captain you have access to team management. You can also put up your players attributes to help score the free kick.

(If you have Fifa 08 you will probably be quite good at free kicks by now and you can practice in the free roam arena by pressing an arrow button)
Retain the Golden Boot45
Win the Golden Boot as 2004 winner Milan Baros in Captain Your Country (solo only) 
Play as the Czech Republic and choose to be the existing player Milan Baros. Set the difficulty as amateur and make sure you score lots of goals at the EURO 2008 finals. To make sure you get it you can just play the first match in the finals of the EURO 2008 and set it to a longer time limit and score loads then and then you can watch the top scores as you play through. Its not hard at all to get the golden boot on amateur and you should be Milan Baros as your first play through to unlock other achievements on the way instead of having to do a whole new play through just to get this one achievement.
Leading the underdogs10
Captain and win a match with a 7th seeded country in Captain Your Country (solo only) 
Choose the 7th seeded country in Captain your Country mode and win games until you earn the captaincy then all you have to do is win a game. This is not hard at all if you select amateur difficulty all you have to do is make sure you are the 7th seeded coutry.
Lead from the back45
Qualify for UEFA EURO 2008™ in Captain Your Country as a Defender (solo only) 
Start captain your Country mode and choose to be a Defender of any country. Play along the mode until your team qualifies and the achievement will unlock after your last qualifying game. You do not even have to be the captain just qualify in Captain your Country mode.
Lead from the front25
Qualify for UEFA EURO 2008™ in Captain Your Country as an Attacker (solo only) 
Same as before but instead choose a Forward when you start Captain your Country mode and you will get the achievement when your team qualifies.
Lead from the middle25
Qualify for UEFA EURO 2008™ in Captain Your Country as a Midfielder (solo only) 
Again same as before but instead choose a Midfielder when you start Captain your Country mode and you will get the achievement when your team qualifies.
Man of the Match10
Get Man of the Match in Captain Your Country (solo only) 
It is probably easier to do this with a Forward as then you can score goals easier and improve your player rating. If you finish the game with the highest player rating you will be man of the match. You do not have to get this as Captain. Just score a few goals and stay in position when defending. I chose to do a few passes with defenders and then just dribble for goal to keep the perfect passing percentage. You can check the teams player ratings at the start menu during the game.
Pass Master10
Get a Pass Completion% of at least 90% in a Captain Your Country Match (solo only) 
This is easier the shorter the game and it goes without sayin on amateur difficulty. It is also easier to do by passing less. When the game starts just pass with your defenders a few times and don't pass again. When you get the ball just head toards goal. You can even leave the game on and let your team loose. You will probably get this along the way through doing Captain your Country mode though, just dont pass alot. You can also see your pass percentage at half time when it shows you and the other 3 players hoping to become Captain.
First Time Champions30
Win UEFA EURO 2008™ with a team which has never won it before (solo only) 
For this you have to play the Euro 2008 mode, full, and set it to amateur dificulty and 4 minute matches as it shouldn't be hard to win an this will mke the whole thing quicker. You have to win as a team that has never won before and it might be worth choosing a team from the list for the achievement below that have never qualified before to get both achievements in one play through. If you do this then my recommendation is Ukraine.

Teams that have never won before are:

Albania
Andorra
Armenia
Austria
Azerbaijan
Belarus
Belgium
Bosnia-Herz.
Bulgaria
Croatia
Cyprus
England
Estonia
Faroe Islands
Finland
Fyr Macedonia
Georgia
Hungary
Iceland
Israel
Kazakhstan
Latvia
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta
Moldova
Montenegro
N.Ireland
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Rep.Of Ireland
Romania
San Marino
Scotland
Serbia
Slovakia
Slovenia
Sweden
Switzerland
Turkey
Ukraine
Wales

My personal recomendation is England as they have the greatest players in the world and should be the greatest team in the world...they are also the highest rated of all those teams.
First Time Qualifiers25
Qualify for UEFA EURO 2008™ with a team that has never qualified before (solo only) 
Go to the Euro 2008 mode and choose short half lengths (4 minutes minimum) and set it to amateur and only qualification or full if you want to go for the achievement above at the same time by just carrying on and winning with one of the teams that have never qualiified let alone won.

Teams that have never qualified are:

Albania
Andorra
Armenia
Azerbaijan
Belarus
Bosnia-Herz.
Cyprus
Estonia
Faroe Islands
Finland
Fyr Macedonia
Georgia
Iceland
Israel
Kazakhstan
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta
Moldova
Montenegro
N.Ireland
San Marino
Slovakia
Ukraine
Wales

My personal recomendation is Ukraine and they are the highest rated of all those teams.
Fastest Goal20
In the UEFA EURO 2008™ finals beat the fastest ever goal of 67 seconds. (Any Half Length/solo only) 
This and the achievements below might be worth starting a new tournament for. Go to Euro 2008 mode and coose finals, set the difficulty to amateur and the time to 20 minutes which is maximum(to make the 67 seconds as long as possible). You can be any team you want the best are France and Spain. From the start save the tournament and start the first game and just run straight through the centre and score, you will know by now its not hard at all on amateur. You have to score in under a minute and seven seconds. If you fail just quit the tournament without saving a load up the save from before the first game.
Biggest Win25
In UEFA EURO 2008™ mode beat the biggest win of Germany 13 San Marino 0 (solo only) 
I would go for this when doing the achievement above. You can win 15-1 or 30-10 you just have to win by more than 13 goals, and by going for this when doing the achievement above all the settings such as a 20 minute match will favour your odds of scoring this many goals.
Beat the 2004 Goal Haul10
Score more than the top amount of 10 goals from 2004 in the UEFA EURO 2008™ finals (solo only) 
I would again go for this when doing the two above achievements. It will already be set to finals so you should get this if you manage to get the achievement above for setting the biggest win as you would have scored more than 13 goals which is more than 10..
First ever win10
Win a qualifying match with San Marino on Pro level or above (solo only) 
Just play a single match as San Marino on Pro difficulty and win..Obviously you can have the match length whatever you wantso if you wanna pull off a fluke win choose low where as if you have trouble scorin just put the length higher. I would try to score one goal and then just defend and waste time.
Greek God15
Win UEFA EURO 2008™ as captain of Greece in Captain Your Country (solo only) 
Start captain your country mode as Greece and go all the way to win as captain. I give tips below on what position to be so that all achievements can be done playing captain you country 3 times.
Online Sample20

Up for the Cup25
Win an Online Cup match 
Win an online cup match. It doesn't matterwhat seed you are and when you will unlock an achievement for winning with and playing with that seeded team also. If you cant seem to in then just choose a seed one team and wait until you play a 7th seeded team to give you more of a chance. I would say choose Spain, France or Italy and eventually you will come up against someone playing as the Faroe Islands.
