Welcome to FIFA 14, the latest installment in the EA’s long running simulation football franchise. The game improves upon previous titles in many ways and also adds various new features such as Pure Shot, and focus on multiplayer and co-op play has been increased. Game modes include Career, FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT), Seasons, Pro Clubs & Skill Games. There are a fair amount of achievements invested in each area of the game across these modes. The game is generally an easy completion, with 2 or 3 mildly challenging achievements but overall a substantial drop in difficulty compared to previous FIFA games.
Note: If you have played and completed the 360 version of FIFA 14, or unlocked various achievements, certain achievements in the Xbox One versions such as "Fuel For My Club", "On Your Way" & "Started From the Bottom…" will unlock straight away when booting the game up and/or entering the corresponding game mode.
There are 6 achievements for 120G tied to the Career mode, 4 of which must be done in the Manager Career, one in the Player Career and "You Got Mail" can be done in either. All 6 achievements can be gained with 2 hours, and you’re only technically required to play one match for "Rising Star", and most of your activity in the Career mode will go towards simulating matches.
There are 10 achievements for 200G tied to the FIFA 14 Ultimate Team mode (FUT.) All FUT achievements can be gained within 5 hours. You will be required to complete simple tasks such as create your club, change your captain, challenge the Team of the Week & apply a chemistry set consumable to more longer tasks such as win a division title, complete all 14 manager tasks and open 20 packs.
There are 4 achievements for 120G related to the Skill games. They’re tutorial type challenges that cover all aspects of football. There are 13 challenges in total, each challenge has four stages; Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum (Challenge.) You will need to need to complete the Bronze & Silver stage of all 13 skill games for "Silver Lining", and complete the final challenge stage of a single skill game for Legendary. You will need to beat friends score in any skill game for "Skills to Pay the Bills" & "So Skilled" will unlock once you complete the Bronze stage of any skill game.
Pro Clubs & Seasons
There are 3 achievements for 75G tied to the Pro Clubs. You will be required to play a Drop-In match for "Just Dropped In", win a season’s match in Pro Clubs with a friend online for "Teamwork" & complete 15% of all Pro Accomplishments for "On Your Way". All Pro Club achievements can be gained within 5 hours. There are 2 achievements for 155G which are linked to Seasons for winning a trophy and earning a promotion.
There are several achievements in the game, most of which will come through natural play such as scoring different types of goals, and performing simple tasks on the games interface like gifting an item to a friend, buying an item from the catalogue, following a football recommendation, completing a be a pro challenge, playing a game of the week and reaching football club level 15.
*For the majority of offline achievements, you can head into Game Settings and press until you come to User and CPU game play customization. You can use a number of sliders to alter the game. Anything from shot accuracy and power, to goalkeeper quality can be customized to make the completion that much easier*
*As the button layout can be customized to a large degree in FIFA, this guide will assume you are using the ‘Classic’ control layout. Simply swap s for s, and vice versa where necessary, if you use ‘Alternate’. Other buttons in the guide may need to be changed to match your setup too.*

Road MapShow roadmap
FIFA 14 Achievement Guide
There are 41 achievements with a total of 1000 points
Score with a Curling Lace Shot
The majority of shots in FIFA (unmodified by bumpers such as finesse) will be the standard lace shot using . For this achievement, you must score with a curling lace shot. Shots will naturally curl and swerve depending on the players positioning and how well he strikes the ball. This will most likely be one of the first you unlock.
Score with a Dipping Volley
To increase the chances of scoring a dipping volley, attempt to set your players up with lob passes and low crosses. Simply strike the ball with as it is heading down to dip the ball. Again, this will come relatively easy just through natural play.
Straight Arm a Defender to Protect the Ball
This achievement is definitely odd. Instead of doing as the description says, you will need to tackle an opposing player from behind with as they attempt to shield the ball.
This can be done with a second controller/player. They need to hold to shield the ball, and then you tackle form behind.
Win the ball back with a Second Chance Tackle
If you miss a standing tackle, simply press tackle again () to pull off a Second Chance tackle. You must win the ball back like this. You will know if it is a Second Chance tackle, as your player will awkwardly stretch to reach for the ball, after missing the first tackle.
Score with a first time Sliding Shot
Another easy one. Your player must score by sliding along the ground to tap the ball in. Will most likely occur on rebounds and ground crosses.
Score with an Outside of the Foot Shot
Another achievement that will come with normal play. To increase the chances of this, try shooting with higher quality players, and those who have the Outside Foot Shot trait. You need to be running towards goal, at an angle so that the player shoots () and will need to curl the ball towards the goal using the outside of his foot.
Win a game on Legendary after trailing at half time
Using the game sliders make this achievements very easy, as mentioned in the roadmap. Enter an Exhibition match, and make sure the difficulty is set to Legendary. Next, alter the sliders to your preference so that your team’s attributes are inflated and you opponents deflated. Once you enter a game, go ahead and score an owngoal, then let the clock run until halftime, so that the opponents are leading. In the second half, you are now free to score and beat your opponent. Note; the match must be a win. A draw will not count.
Score a Perfect Hat Trick (left foot, right foot, header)
Sliders come in handy hear too. Particularly, increasing shot power and decreasing your shot error,which will allow you to score from almost anywhere. Load up a match, and score a goal with a players right foot. Next, using the same player, shift him so that he will shoot (and score) with his left foot. Finally, set the same player up again for a headed opportunity for the third goal.
Complete the Silver stage of all Skill Games
There are 13 Skills games to beat. Each Skill game has a Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum stage, each stage is unlocked as the previous is completed and the challenges get more challenging as you progress. Therefore, you will need to complete the Bronze & Silver stage of all 13 Skill games for this achievement. The majority of them are not difficult, and it generally all comes down to practice and learning. The Skills games and their required points include;
Bronze Score – 5000 points
Silver Score – 4000 points
Advanced Ground Pass
Bronze Score – 8000 points
Silver Score – 7000 points
Bronze Score – 5000 points
Silver Score – 5000 points

Silver Score – 6000 points
Bronze Score – 10000 points
Silver Score – 7500 points
Bronze Score –7300 points
Silver Score – 5000 points
For each challenge I recommend picking the best players in that specific field of skill. For example, for passing challenges choose players such as Xavi, Iniesta or Pirlo. For dribbling skills, either use Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Shooting; Messi and Ronaldo, or Ibrahimovic. Defending; Thiago Silva. Goalkeeping; Casillas or Neuer.
- Ground Pass
Become Legendary on one of the Skill Challenges in Skill Games
To become Legendary on a skill game, you must complete all four stages of any skill challenge. The easiest skill game to achieve this is the Goalkeeper skill challenge. The Bronze, Silver & Gold stages will not give you must trouble. A tip for the Platinum stage is to always be holding so your keeper always gets in the optimal position. In addition to this you should use to sprint in order to reach the harder balls being shot at you and to move in the direction of the balls. You will miss a few balls at the end, but you should still be able to beat this challenge by a considerable margin.
Unlock a single Skill Challenge in Skill Games
A skill challenge is the final stage of a skill game, the platinum stage. You will need to complete the Bronze, Silver & Gold stages of any skill game to unlock this achievement. It is recommended that you choose the Goalkeeper skill game, as you will need to beat all four stages for that skill game for "Legendary" either way.

Now you will play your first official league game, choose either to play as the whole team or just your Pro, whichever you feel you can score more goals with a single player with.

A season in Online Friendlies consists of 5 games, and so the quickest way to earn this is to have one person win 3 games. From the main menu, press on the "Online Friendlies" tile. Invite a friend, and swap the half-length to 2 minutes. The person who will be losing can back out of the first 2 games to hasten the process, but the 3rd match must be played to completion.
On Your Way50
Unlock 15% of the Pro Accomplishments in Pro Clubs
For this you need to progress your overall Pro progress bar up to 15%. It is best to play mainly as a midfielder or striker in order to make lots of passes, dribbles and shots. You should also play a few games as a goalkeeper and defender to work towards the easier accomplishments such as saves made, and tackles. Just playing games and achieving a good match rating will also work towards accomplishments.
It is recommended playing in a club with friends/boosters, but I did mine in Drop-In sessions. Playing in a club will definitely shorten the time that this achievement takes to get, as you will avoid other players online.
Also, you should purchase all available Pro boosts from the EA catalogue. Whilst these will not count towards the 15%, they will make your player more formidable in-game.
Win your first seasons match in Pro Clubs
For this you will need to win a match when playing in your club, with a friend/s. This should come relatively soon, depending on how good your team is. Be warned, this will not unlock if the opposing team backs out of the game whilst you are winning.
Complete a Match Day Challenge in Highlights of the Week on at least World Class difficulty
Perhaps the hardest achievement in the game, the requirement for this will need some persistence. From the main menu, hover over the Kick Off tile and scroll right with the to find the "Highlights of the Week" tile. Enter this and you will be presented with a series of challenges that frequently update and change.
The majority of these challenges will ask you to pull back goal deficits against better teams on world class, which depending on how good you are can be very hard. I suggest attempting some time management; say if there is 30 minutes to score 3 goals, try to score one in the first 10 minutes.
Moreover, if the challenge starts with set piece such as a corner or free kick, make full use of it. For example, if you start the challenge with a corner and fail to score, immediately restart the challenge.
Win a Game of the Week in Highlights of the Week
From the main menu, hover over the "Kick Off" tile and scroll right with the to find the "Highlights of the Week" tile. Enter this and you will be presented with a series of challenges that frequently update and change. Play any challenge on any difficulty to unlock this.
On My Own20
Complete a Be a Pro Challenge on any difficulty in Highlights of the Week
Entering the same menu as above, you must play a match title as a Be a Pro challenge, to unlock this achievement.
Follow a Football Club Recommendation
This should unlock when you complete "Fancy Some FUT?".
Gift a Football Club Catalogue item
From the main menu, head on over to the "Football Club" tab and press on the "Catalogue" tile. Now you can choose an item such as the ‘Muevelo Goal Celebration’, press and then gift it to a friend. Once the transaction had completed, the achievement will pop.
Beat a score in Skill Games
This can easily be gained by having a friend play a stage in any skill game and score relatively low, and then you should play the same stage and beat their score for the achievement.
Redeem an item from the Football Club Catalogue
In the same process as "From Me To You", select an item from the catalogue and buy it for yourself.
Reach EA SPORTS Football Club Level 15
Every match played in FIFA nets you a certain amount of XP that adds together to help you level up, which allows you to unlock more items in the EA catalogue. If you have played previous iterations of the franchise, there is a high possibility that this will unlock automatically on you first start up. If, not it will not take too long by playing through the Career mode and online matches. You can also help speed this up by playing some of the harder difficulty challenges in Highlight of the Week. You should note that there is a around about a 2000XP limit per day.
