    Having found the manual difficult to find things quickly in, here is an abbreviated but by no means help sheet.

    Feel free to amend and re-post with any errors and extra guidance.

    Cheers

    Shooting tips (Hold R1 for finesse)
    1. When your running, knock the ball a bit infront of you and hold in L2 and shoot,
    2. when in line with the middle of the goal from 30-40 yards hold the opposite direction to where you're shooting. for example you're attacking the goal dribbling from right to left then hold the left analogue stick to the right and quikly shoot holding it 3/4 and letting go before you would normally turn.
    3. When close to goal just tap circle, and just move to the side before you do it.

    Not everything. Doesnt have tricks and penalty kicks and minor things like that hence please add any tips yourself if you like :thumbsup:

    I got fed up with all that typing after a while

    I'd also been meaning to do it for months too.

    Draw a line across the pitch along the edge of the penalty box. Anywhere behind this is outside the zone I believe.

    Called the arena burt basically where you start the game and ronaldinho appears with which you can practice shots and free kicks (not corners or penalties I believe).
