    From the FIFA 16 "Main Menu" use cn_LB or cn_RB to highlight the "Play" tab.

    Highlight the "New Career" tile (using cn_up, cn_down, cn_left, or cn_right). This tile might say "Load Career" or "Continue Career" - if it does, highlight the tile then use the cn_RS to change it to "New Career". Press the cn_A button to begin a new career.

    Alternatively you can load or continue a Manager Career that you had previously started.

    If you are starting a new career, then highlight and select "Manager Career" from the "New Career" menu.

    Pick an appropriate team, you can review these achievements if you wish to get more than one achievement out of the way at this time:

    FIFA 16 (Xbox 360)Management at its bestThe Management at its best achievement in FIFA 16 (Xbox 360) worth 88 pointsWin a Trophy as a Team manager

    FIFA 16 (Xbox 360)Gold acquisitionThe Gold acquisition achievement in FIFA 16 (Xbox 360) worth 37 pointsBuy a player which is in a league above you


    In the "Career Settings" menu be sure to set the "Disable First Summer Transfer Window" to "Off" if you are shooting for the any of the "Career" related transfer achievements.

    Highlight "Advance" and press the cn_A button to continue. Then repeat once more.


    Now - just as in previous FIFA editions, you need to hire a scout (or use an existing one) & go search for a specific type of player. From the "Central" tab, highlight & select the "Global Transfer Network" tile.

    You can hire an additional scout or two if you wish (I did), but after that you need to go to the "Instructions" tab (use cn_LB or cn_RB). Each tile here represents the corresponding scout from the "Scouts" tab. So if you wish to edit the instructions for you uppermost left scout, highlight the uppermost left tile on the "Instruction" tab. Press cn_Y to edit the scout's instructions.

    You want to highlight the "Attributes" tile and select three (and only three) attributes:

    1. Defensive Minded
    2. First Team Quality
    3. Strong

    Uncheck any other attributes!!

    Press cn_B to go back, and cn_A to "Keep Changes".

    Do this for every scout.

    Now go back to "Central" tab, select the "Advance" tile & start simming (press cn_A). If you did everything else correctly the achievement should pop in about 30 seconds.

    If you choose you can stay in this mode and complete the other career achievements or back out of career mode and seek other challenges!!
