With a second controller give yourself a corner kick by having Player 2 kick the ball out of bounds behind his own goal.

On the corner kick three guys should be in the box. Press A to launch the ball towards the goal. As the ball is in the air, press up and then down (down then up if on the top half of the field) to take control of the player closest to the ball and press A once again to head it in. The player that scored on a header for me was the one closest to the corner kick taker.
AdnyCheers, this worked a treat. :D

Jezza69I had no luck with the other method mentioned, this worked after a few (lots!) tries.

Lord TerentiusPerfect. Tried the throw-in method. Didn't work. This worked on the 4th attempt. Up voted!

MattiasAndersonTHANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! I tried to other foolish ways of doing this and after 2 hours i saw your solution which i had overlooked somehow!!! To get the ball up hi enough just press a button and hold it down and dont move analog like i did first. Then at one point sooner or later you be able to get this one. I played as Brazil vs Faraoe Island.

Once again! Best solution BY FAR!

CartooniteThis is how I finally managed to do it. I found with the throw-ins the ball just didn't seem to have enough height for a header.

JeeperCreeperMCHow do you manage it? Literally every time it's either going wide of the post, the players not responding, or the keeper is there...

MisterSledgeI had absolutely no luck with the throw in method. Here’s what I did:
- (Real) Madrid vs Faroe Islands (B36)
- 4-3-3 formation keeps 3 guys in the box
- Second controller dribbles the ball out behind goal for a corner
- Cross the ball in with a half second press on the A button (longer than a tap) launches the ball further and past the post
- Once kicked, move the nearest player away from goal and quickly back and press A. While pressing A, aim the Left stick into the opposite corner of goal

I’ve uploaded a few videos of me doing this for reference.

Good luck!
