My solution is a twist on "Shanevolution" and "GuitarSLAY3R's". I found this on (thanks "DOA hed" and "Baihu1983") and added my own experience. So, this is definitely a community solution. :-)

1. Play with a buddy online and try to keep the score 0-0, or at least tied before time runs out. This way you can go indefinitely.
2. Play the "Hard" level (the one with the red in the meter) as there are 2 strikers (right term?) and one of them is usually a header, which is usually the person on the left.
3. On offense, try to keep the ball to the left and end up passing to the guy who does headers.
4. As the ball is in the air, hop up and down so the ball has a better chance of arriving at the goalie's shoulders instead of knees. If you're good at timing it, you may not need to hop like an idiot like I did. lol
5. Now, on the goalie side, as the ball is traveling toward the striker, put both arms out in front, a little more that shoulder width apart. I looked like I was holding the handlebars in wake racing.
6. just as the striker heads the ball, do a slow, forward lunge keeping your arms out in front. (Basically take a 3-4 foot step forward with one leg and bend your knees. If you remember the Friends episode where Joey was wearing all of Chandler's clothes and he was sweaty and doing lunges, it looks like that.) Found a link:

7. Once you get the timing right, this works pretty well. It took a couple games to get the timing in step 6, but once I did, I had 4 punches out of 5 attempts. Once I taught my buddy, he had 4 in a row.

I apologize in advance for my weak definition of a lunge. :-) lol

I just got this achievement today with Chatt Townkilla, we found that if you pass the ball to the player taking the shot with a ground pass then lift your knee to pop the ball up for a high volley, it gives plenty of time to get their head in reticle with arms extended in front of them that it will trigger the punch.

Timing didn't matter but precision did. No crazy movements, just on target. Once we figured this out we both popped the achievements within a couple games. No glitches, no troubles.

Hope this helps smile
