General rules:
The easiest way to complete all challenges from all regions in the game is as follows:
- Create 11 players with 0 skill - Minimise their height, maximise their weight.
- Create 7 extra goalkeepers - do not change skill - these are substitutes.
- All the created players should be the same nationality. Put all of them in to the national squad
- Put all created players in to the starting line up, with the extras as subs.
- Change the formation so that all players are as wide as possible, with an attacking mentality. This will leave massive gaps in defence and midfield.
- Use either Brazil, England, Spain, France against the designated losing nation.
- Go to My Fifa 08 and save your squad, so you can reload it each time.

Complete challenge with __________:
If you do not like the player selected, back out twice (team selection screen) and re-select team.
