A very annoying achievement. I found this one to be the hardest in the game. To get this one you will need to get at least 10 goals ahead of your opponent. This means you need a score of at least 10 - 0, 11 - 1, 14 - 0 etc. I ended up having 16 - 0 and that was lucky. The problem with this game is that you will find the opponents will try and knock you over when you have the ball.

The easiest method into setting up the match is to first go into Single Player, then click Options. And then change the time limit to 10 Minutes and the Fix Pitch Time to Hard. Click Exit to return to the main menu.

From here click DIY Competition and then choose Cup. Change the Rounds to 1 and change the Substitutes 3 from 5. Click OK and then click Choose Teams.

Select Club Teams and then choose Europe. Click Spain and then click Primera Division. Choose Barcelona and keep on pressing cn_A until it is highlighted in Blue. This is the team your going to be playing with. Click Exit twice until you return to the menu where you can choose the Europe Team again. Click Faroe Islands and click B36 until it goes Red. This is known to be one of the worst teams in the game. Click Play Cup, then click Next Match and then click Match.

You can then adjust the way your players are playing in the match but it's not necessary. Click Play Match when your ready.

Tip: Now the trick here which I've discovered is that if you do this achievement under the DIY Competition, whenever you return to the main menu after you have completed the match or Exit before you click Play Cup, you have a new feature called Save DIY Cup. If you save your DIY Cup you can access it anytime should you lose the match and you don't want to go through this step-by-step process again. You cannot however save a DIY Competition if you Quit to the Main Menu during mid-game.

When your in the match the first most important thing you need to figure out is which goal you need to shoot the ball to. Nothing will get you more than going for the wrong goal. It should be easily noticeable by looking at which side your team is standing at the start of the match.

Next you need to take hold of the ball and pass it to anyone who is nearby you. If you have a clear gap, just run towards the goal.
Now in my opinion I have actually found the goalie to be pretty smart as when I was shooting the ball in straight lines, he easily catched the ball. However I found a little trick in which if you can shoot your ball diagonally by positioning cn_LSul, cn_LSur, cn_LSdl or cn_LSdr and pressing cn_A the goalie may find it tricky to catch the ball since they will perform a dive to catch it. Sadly the goalie will have opportunities where they catch the ball, plus you have to be-aware that some opponents might sit in the goal as well.

Overall it will take some practice and mostly luck. But unless you are skilled at the game, don't think that this achievement is going to be a cakewalk to pop. Good Luck!
