    - Keep a clean sheet
    - Score 1 goal

    **You can score as many as you want. Change the formation to 4-5-1 or 5-4-1, to reduce the chance of someone being caught offside, and help defend your goal.**

    2. Give Up Now
    5 minutes, legendary
    - Score 2 goals with 1 player
    - Complete 15 short passes in the 2nd half with __________

    5 minutes, legendary
    - Score 2 goals with __________
    - Score 1 goal in under 15 minutes with __________

    5 minutes, legendary

    5. Very Nice
    5 minutes, legendary
    - Win by 2 goals
    - Keep a clean sheet
    - Get 50% shots on target with __________
    **Avoid shooting from distances and acute angles. Once you have completed the shooting objectives, go defensive, by changing your formation and mentality. I suggest 5-4-1 or 4-5-1.**

    - Get 100% of your shots on target
    - Keep a possession percentage of 90% or higher

    - Complete 25 short passes in 1st half with __________
    - Score with a late sub after the 85 minute mark.
    **Have three strikers on the substitutes bench, ready for the second half. Passing is easier in defence, so move your designated player there. In the second half, continually kick the ball out of play to maximise stoppage time. You can get a maximum of +5 minutes. Once the time reaches 85 minutes, change your tactics to 4-3-3 or 3-4-3, and put your 3 strikers up front.**

    8. Better Finish It.
    5 minutes, legendary
    - Score 2 goals with a midfielder

    - Score 4 goals with at least 2 different players
    - Win the match in regular time.
    **Put multiple attacking players in the starting line up. Once a player has scored, change his position, or substitute them.**

    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.
    - Transfer all players to one team. This is the designated losing team.
    - 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.
    - Transfer all the best players in the world to one squad.
    - Go to My Fifa 08 and save your squad, so you can reload it each time.
    - Once you have completed a region, you can then transfer your players to the new designated teams for any particular region.

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

    If you want to shave off even more time and make it even easier use the classic XI side under rest of the world, the players are just a step up from even the best in the game at the time, the lowest rated is 88! But they play even better! Against your designated losing side it's a piece of cake!

    Challenge 10-6 is by far the hardest because you have to get 100% shots on target, 90% passing success, and 90% possesion on legendary difficulty. An easy way to do this though is to go into create a player and make 10 players the shortest and slimmest that they can go. It doesn't matter about the position (not GK). Then go into transfers and transfer all the created players into any 1/2 star team (I used Accrington Stanley in league 2). Then go into squads and put all the created midgets into the starting line up. You can then go into formations and choose edit formation (Y). Then put 5 defenders on their own goal line, and 5 midfielders inside their own half, and no strikers. You can then knock the ball around your own defence without worrying about the opposition. Once they take the kick off at the start of the second half, be sure to win the ball back ASAP to ensure that u mantain 90% possesion. Hope this helps!

    Deco76BRThe way I did to keep possession is after knowcking the ball in defense for some time and opposition getting close you make a own goal. It doesn't matter the score as long as you had 1 shot to get a 100% shots on target.

    eln0rteThis works a treat for all challenges. Either set the opposition formation as being all in their half or in all your half depending on what you have to do.

    TuftyAlx312To get your one shot on target wai for the clock to turn to 45 mins in the 1st half and make your way up the pitch and shoot, your opponents may get the ball but it is guarenteed to end soon and therefore your possesion pecenage reamins high.
