    The most frustrating achievement in the game. Here's how I did it; 2 controllers, local MP. Pick Barcelona vs. B36 (Faroe Islands). You use Barcelona, 2nd controller is B36. Using Barcelona (1st controller), take the ball into the B36 end and kick it out of bounds to the side about parallel to the 6 yd box (the smaller box around the B36 net). Using the 2nd controller (B36), push AWAY from the net (right or left) to get height on the ball and hold A on the throw in. The ball will bounce into the middle of the field, and there should be a Barca player running in towards it from just outside the larger box in the middle of the field. Hit it straight in with the A button. Timing is everything, and you will miss the ball completely or kick it more often than not, but persevere and you will get it. I tried many different methods, and this was the only one I could get to work consistently. Just keep at it.

    SkarviTI put the field as Freeze or Snowly, I don't remember the exact name, but it helped me and I didn't have to throw the ball high, I just pressed A button.

    HudifusThis is the only method that worked for me. Throw the ball in to the side of the 6 yard box, wait for it to bounce once and then press "a" and the stick in the direction of the goal. Your player should already be running in a straight line toward the goal and you just have to get the timing down so that you head the ball and it travels toward the net. I kept hitting "a" early and would get the header but miss the goal. Keep trying and you'll get the timing down.

    With a second controller give yourself a corner kick by having Player 2 kick the ball out of bounds behind his own goal.

    On the corner kick three guys should be in the box. Press A to launch the ball towards the goal. As the ball is in the air, press up and then down (down then up if on the top half of the field) to take control of the player closest to the ball and press A once again to head it in. The player that scored on a header for me was the one closest to the corner kick taker.

    MattiasAndersonTHANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! I tried to other foolish ways of doing this and after 2 hours i saw your solution which i had overlooked somehow!!! To get the ball up hi enough just press a button and hold it down and dont move analog like i did first. Then at one point sooner or later you be able to get this one. I played as Brazil vs Faraoe Island.

    Once again! Best solution BY FAR!

    CartooniteThis is how I finally managed to do it. I found with the throw-ins the ball just didn't seem to have enough height for a header.

    Ok just to simplify this cheev a bit as it is very easy to get and it took me 6 attempts to get it and if i can do it you can do it. Do exactly what Buckswana has wrote but here is how made I it a bit easier on myself. Playing as a barcelona player i ran the ball down to B36 goal and put it out for a Goal Kick. Now pick up the 2nd controller and make the goal keeper kick the ball out of bounds directly left or right which ever side of the pitch you are on so it goes out of play directly inline with the 6 yard box ie the small box infront of goal. Now take the throw in as explained before and time your header right. After a couple of goes you will see how the keeper moves and where the ball goes so it becomes very easy to get. If you get any probs i will show you in a game on live how i done it to help you out. please message me tho and Not add me.
    Just a quick update if anyone is still playing this game or is stuck. Just have a look at the comments below for a couple of handy tips that a few gamers have come up with. ??

    MaseJBit old but nonetheless, I tried your way instead of Buckswana's & my striker would always be waiting too close to the goalie so on my 5th try, I ran back a bit then nailed the header. Easier than expected +1

    GREGO McGEEAgreed. Run back then up and HEAD. Should be top solution. Worked on 5th try.

    JODAWGlad you got it without to much bother, it's just about finding your timing right with the striker. The position of the throw in makes it easier and confuses the goalkeeper. Thanks for the comment lads
