Easy wins

When you are losing the match, press Start and go to ‘Select Sides’. Switch to the other team and score your own goals. When you begin wining you can switch back to your original team.

Easy goals

If you have the ball and are outside the area but not on your half, you can check on the map how far the keeper is off his line. Normally he is about two meters. You can lob him easily if you get the power correct.

When one on one with the goalkeeper, perform a finesse shot. This will trick the keeper from going from one side to the other. For example, fake right and shoot left or vice versa. It will go in about 90% of the time.

Easy money

No matter what team you are in Manager mode, buy the best free agents in the transfer market. Sell them during the same transfer market window so you do not have to pay the high salary. Because they are free to you, once you sell them you can get the added millions to your bank account.

Easy unlockable points

Advance through the game modes and select Tournament mode. Select any cup tournament, as they tend to be shorter. Select the highest rated team or replace a team in the tournament with a highly rated team from another league. Advance to Tournament Central and quick sim all the games until you have won the tournament. You will be awarded unlockable points to spend.

Full team stamina

In Manager mode, save the game, quit, then load Manager mode again and all your players’ stamina will be almost fully refilled. Repeat this process as much as desired.

Cheaper players

This trick works in Manager mode when you are changing teams at the end of a season. At the end of the season when you are asked whether or not to renew certain players’ contracts, choose not to renew the contracts of your favorite or best players (the ones you want on your new team). When you get to the new team and the transfer period starts, the players will be free agents, allowing you to transfer them without paying millions in fees and allowing you to re-negotiate the contract to fit your new team.

Preview unlockables

Purchase unlockable items without saving your profile. After testing items, simply reload your profile to re-acquire the unlockable points. By using this technique you can unlock and test all the unlockables in the game.

Infinite player creation points

This trick allows you to have an unlimited amount of points for a created player. It also works with the existing players and enables you to increase their stats to perfect. The process takes about an hour to make a perfect custom player. While in the creation process, go to ‘Traits’ and select all the negative ones (they give you 1,500 points). Exit the Traits screen. Select a category (such as attack, defense, etc.) and distribute the points as you wish. When finished, exit the screen. Go back to the Traits screen and de-select the negative traits, then exit the screen. Press Start and save your player. Re-open your created player in the edit player feature. Repeat the previous steps until the desired stats are achieved.

Finding Giovanni Dos Santos

You can find Giovanni Dos Santos in Barcelona’s reserve list. Even though he is only 69 overall you can edit his stats and make him as good as Ronaldinho. You will then have two of the best midfielder’s in the game.v
