    NmE War EagleOk, so this will be a mini-rant (tl;dr version - make sure "Timed Finishing" is set to off):

    First, I hate this f***ing achievement - always have, always will - it's just a really ignorant achievement for EA to put in - and it's just completely indicative of the utter douchebaggery of the entire company.

    So after an hour of trying this, adjusting sliders, changing formations, putting Heath up top (she's the only one with the "Flair" shot trait), a million misses by Rapinoe, a million offside by Morgan (both, btw, more utter b.s. by EA - because Rapinoe doesn't miss in real life, and Morgan doesn't spend her life offsides in real life), I finally went and checked if stupid "Timed Finishing" was on or off in the settings. It was, of course, on - even though I've turned it off in every f***ing mode - it continues to reset to on in "Kickoff" mode (no idea why). At this point I've scored over 50 goals with no luck. First cross with Timed Finishing Off and Rapinoe gets me the achievement.

    So if you're having trouble with this, try it with "Timed Finishing" set to "off" and then join me in wishing random boils on the decision makers for this achievement.

    Karma Cop52This wouldn't unlock for me until I read War Eagle's post above.

    Rafalp16Did it on first try (shot) today. Played as USA, crossed to morgan and used LT+B, luckily pressed B second time in the middle of the bar, cheevo poped. It's either fixed or just bugged for some.

    Select "Kick Off" on the main menu and choose "Classic Match".

    When you select your team change it to Women's and select USA. Under team management make sure you have Rapinoe, Morgan and Heath starting as they have 4 and 5 star skill moves.

    Before you start the game change the game settings and difficulty to Beginner.

    Now in the game keep passing the ball to your front 3 players, hold cn_LT and press the shoot button ( cn_B on classic controls) to perform a flair shot. One should go in fairly quickly on beginner. I find first time shots work best so get close to the goal and pass it to another player and perform the flair shot. It will unlock as soon as you score.

    If you finish the game you will then unlock the following.

    iMaginaryyYeah I had to do a cross to flair (flair performed with heath) so X -> LT+B, also had timed finishing off. Heath did like a side flip so she was horizontal and kicked the ball out of the air into the goal.

    Jaaaay MeeeeeI'll second what War Eagle said, after turning off timed finishers I got it instantly while I scored 14 goals on normal settings with no achievement. Great tip if the other method isn't working for you.
