How to unlock the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Mastery achievement

  • 58 0 18
    Much easier way of doing this than playing a full game is play the teams in a Penalty Shootout on Amateur, I just did this and only lost 1 shootout along the way, I did it in under 2 hours for sure, just mark off what teams you've beat along the way.

    The Teams:
    Algeria
    Argentina
    Australia
    Brazil
    Cameroon
    Chile
    Cote d’Ivoire
    Denmark
    England
    France
    Germany
    Ghana
    Greece
    Honduras
    Italy
    Japan
    Korea DPR
    Korea Republic
    Mexico
    Netherlands / Holland (Same team but different names in different regions)
    New Zealand
    Nigeria
    Paraguay
    Portugal
    Serbia
    Slovakia
    Slovenia
    South Africa
    Spain
    Switzerland
    United States
    Uruguay

    If your unsure as to who you need left to beat, when choosing a country on the globe map, press RT on a chosen country too see what Results you have already against this team, ones without a victory that are on the above list you still need to beat.

    This guide describes how to stack the qualifying achievements from each region while working towards this achievement. In all qualifying regions, you play each team in your group twice in a home and away. All playoffs are home and away matches as well.

    Asia, Africa, and CONCACAF all require playing multiple group stages. This makes in impossible to guarantee you will play all the teams from a region you need to defeat (although the USA is by far the best team in its starting group in CONCACAF). Europe and Africa also advance final stage winners direct to Finals, meaning you may not play all teams necessary. Europe, Asia and Africa seed the final groups with a random draw.

    You are able to select multiple teams at the start of a tournament setup, so for Europe, Asia and Africa, you can pick the teams you need to defeat the necessary teams. It will take longer to get the qualification achievements, you'll get the Mastery achievement sooner.
