Soccer Academy
Once you%26rsquo;ve made the switch to Advanced mode, you should probably enter Soccer Academy to see what new controls are available to you. The Soccer Academy is an interactive tutorial system, where you can practice the following on the training pitch:

The basics (i.e. shooting, passing, throw-ins, headers)

  • More advanced (i.e. Chip shots, long passes)
  • Set Pieces (i.e. free kicks, corner kicks, penalty shots)
  • Keeper Controls (i.e. saving, penalty shootout)
  • Tricks (i.e. 360s, dekes)

There are over 20 drills that can be played. After completing each of the above category of drills, a Time Challenge becomes unlocked. Time Challenges have a series of drills that you%26rsquo;ll need to finish quickly in order to get a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal.

Below is a general breakdown of how the controls are set up:
