Like in the solution for Bump-osauras, you can utilize your Xbox Guide Button on your controller (off-topic hint, the controller is great for menu navigation too!) This exploit is very helpful for defending.

When the CPU has the ball, spend a few seconds trying to stay in front of the attacker. Hit the guide button as soon as the ball path is shown. You may have to anticipate it a little early; I consistently had to hit the button several times so I could be in front of the ball path in time. With the guide button essentially "pausing" the game, you can move to where the ball path is and intercept. If you hit the guide button to late, you may not be able to intercept the ball in time.

Every once in awhile, the ball will get by you, and the CPU will have a scoring chance, They'll wind up to kick, and as soon as there foot hits it, a target will appear showing where it's going. Again, hit the guide button as soon as this target appears. Move your entire body in front of it, as well as both hands, then "un-pause". I let a few goals go because I only reached my hands out, so have your entire body there. Using this method, you should rarely get any shots on your goal, and if you do they should be simple to block.

The guide button trick won't really help here. Personally, I'm not very good at Football on any difficulty. However, with a strong defense (as detailed above) you'll have more opportunities to pass and score. On Champion, the defenders act fast so you have to pass fast. I usually passed to the direction that was open, regardless if I had a player there, I felt I had very little time to dribble or plan out my pass. If a teammate is there, great, if not, one will usually run to where the ball is, and if you screw up and the CPU gets it hopefully you can steal it right back.

My tips for shooting is to aim slightly left or right, and give the ball a healthy kick. Kicking too hard or with too much angle will just sail wide or high.
