Introduction:
Welcome to FIFA 14. EA Sports latest FIFA game is easier to complete in terms of achievements (no more IF achievement, for example), but the way the game plays has changed a lot compared to FIFA 13. Pace will no longer matter as much, while strength and passing have gained more importance. Still, getting the full 1,000 shouldn’t take too long.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Step 1: Career:
As always, you will have to do certain things in career. You are going to play both versions of career (player and manager) for all career achievements. The manager career features the most:

  • "You Got Mail"
  • "First Mission"
  • "Control"
  • "You Struck Gold!"
  • "Silverware"


In your career as a player, you’ll unlock one achievement; 

  • "Rising Star"


Step 2: Ultimate Team (note that UT requires Xbox LIVE):
Ultimate Team returns and so do the UT achievements! Luckily, no IF achievement this time, just the following ones:

  • "Start Building"
  • "Fuel For My Club"
  • "I Could Do This Every Week"
  • "Chemistry Experiment"
  • "Hey Look, a Free Gold Pack!"
  • "Passing on the Armband"
  • "Fancy Some FUT?"
  • "Collecting Silverware"
  • "Long Term Signing"
  • "We’re Bros Now"


A lot more than Career, but still nothing that will take too long.

Step 3: Online/Pro Clubs:
As always, some online/pro clubs achievements. Again, EA went easy on us. The following achievements are gained online:

  • "Bros Gonna Bro"
  • "Best Friends Forever"
  • "Moving On Up"
  • "Bling Bling"
  • "Team Work"
  • "On Your Way"
  • "Just Dropped In"


Step 4: Misc (some of these require Xbox LIVE connection for the EASFC):
With the main modes out of the way, there’s just some remainders left. Some of these are probsbly already unlocked during match play. These are the remaining achievements:

  • "On My Own"
  • "Started From The Bottom…"
  • "It’s Mine Now"
  • "Power and Movement"
  • "What a Hit, Son!"
  • "So Skilled"
  • "Seconds, Please"
  • "Who Needs a Weak Foot?"
  • "Perfection"
  • "Thanks, Tips"
  • "Big Game"
  • "Challenging"
  • "A Legendary Performance"
  • "Legendary"
  • "From Me To You"
  • "Extra Effort"
  • "Skills to Pay the Bills"
  • "No Goal For You!"
  • "Beast Mode"
  • "Silver Lining"


Conclusion:
Overall, FIFA 14 should go faster than FIFA 13. EA went easy on us this year, though some achievements may cause more stress or irritation than others, but the full 1,000 shouldn’t take as long as last year.

There are 43 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Score with a Curling Lace Shot

    (9)  

    For a Curling Lace Shot, your player must strike the ball with his lace and give some effect to the ball. This should come by playing matches.

  • Score with a Dipping Volley

    (3)  

    To score a Dipping Volley, take the volley while the ball is going down. This should also come by playing matches.

  • Straight Arm a Defender to Protect the Ball

    (18)  

    Seems to unlock when you use  (Alternate) or  (Traditional) to push the Defender away.

  • Win the ball back with a Second Chance Tackle

    (7)  

    From what I've heard/read/experienced, it seems there's two ways to unlock this;

    • You must first attempt to win the ball with a Standing Tackle (Traditional:, Alternative:) and then perform a Sliding Tackle (Traditional:, Alternative:) to actually win the ball.
    • You must win the ball after losing it to an opponent, but while still battling for it (when you're going shoulder to shoulder, for example).


    This, like many other gameplay achievements, seems to unlock by just playing matches.

  • Perform a Diving Header Clearance

    (44)  

    First of all, the Diving Header Clearance can be achievement by heading the ball out of the penalty ares! Not necessarily the goal! To get this, hold  and double tap (Traditional) or (Alternative) while the ball is being crossed in. May take multiple attempts. If you want to boost, please use the Achievement Trading Thread.

  • Score with a first time Sliding Shot

    (14)  

    For this achievement, your player has to slide the ball in the goal instead of tapping/shooting it in. Reported to be glitchy.

  • Score with an Outside of the Foot Shot

    (1)  

    This should come by playing matches. The chance of unlocking it may increase by using a player with a bad weak foot, as they are more likely to use Outside Foot Shots when required.

  • Win a game on Legendary after trailing at half time

    May sound difficult, but it’s not. Before starting the match, go to Settings. The last two Settings tabs affect your team and your opponents. Simply set everything positive to 100 and everything negative to 0 for your team, and vice versa for the opponent. Now remember that you have to be at least one goal down at half time.

  • Score a Perfect Hat Trick (left foot, right foot, header)

    (8)  

    Same recipe as "A Legendary Performance." With sliders, it’ll be way easier scoring a perfect hattrick. Remember to use the same player. I would recommend Ibrahimovic.

  • Complete the Silver stage of all Skill Games

    Just complete all Silver stages in Skill Games.
    There are 13 Skill Games in total:

    Objective: Score points by lobbing the ball in the bins
    Target Score: 20000 points
    Recommended Players: Xavi, Pirlo, Xabi Alonso
    Strongly recommended tactic: use  and  (Traditional) or  (Alternative) to hit the front targets three times consecutively (you can hit the same one thrice). You should now have 2400 points. Next, aim for the targets the furthest away. The front targets will give you a multiplier of x3, which will result in gaining 18000 points. Added up you now have enough points to complete the challenge.

    8. Crossing

    Target Score: 12000 points
