As Jepro stated, you can edit a team (such as the generic "Team A" in "Other Leagues") so that the goalkeeper takes both left and right corner kicks.

In addition, it will help if you change the position of Team A's players on the field. I moved the center backs to defensive midfield, and moved the left and right backs up to the very edge of the "back" range (it looks like at least 2 players are needed in the backfield). I then moved the left and right midfielders to left and right wings, along with the forwards. The resulting formation is a 2-4-4.

Then choose Exhibition Mode. Contrary to Jepro's solution, this *does* work, as I got the achievement playing in Exhibition mode. It's just necessary to play the entire game to get the achievement (see below).

I chose to play as Barcelona against Team A. Any of the top-tier teams will do, but I recommend a team with three forwards/strikers up front. I didn't modify Barcelona's formation in any way. I set the level at "Beginner", and the halves at 10 minutes, just to be sure.

Every time I had possession of the ball, I made sure to pass back to my defenders so they could then kick it beyond their own end line and force the corner. Team A's goalie would come upfield to kick the corner, and about half the time, one of my defenders was able to head the corner upfield, and I would then set up a shot from just past midfield.

I tried not to go too far past the center circle, as that's roughly 40-45 meters away. Even though I had an empty net on almost all my shots, I mishit over half of them.

Trying a lob or chip is definitely out of the question, as the ball loses all its momentum and doesn't even reach the goal. Also, going for maximum power will usually lead to a loss of accuracy, such as shooting over the goal (once I hit the crossbar) or off to the side.

Try to "aim" the ball low, as your chances of scoring will be higher. Don't wait too long to shoot, though, as the defenders get back to the goal before the goalkeeper does.

If somehow you get possession of the ball in the opponent's half of the field, just pass it back and set up another corner for Team A. You want to have as many chances at the goal as possible, and counter-attacking from their corner kick is the best strategy for that.

Keep in mind that you won't know whether your goals were from long enough range until the game is over. I was disappointed that none of my goals were followed by the "bleep bloop", and so I was relieved when the achievement popped at the end of the game.

I hope this solution is helpful!
