Tips and Techniques
1) Try to pass as much as possible, passing allows you to get within scoring range easier.

2) You can play a little rough.  You will notice some teams play rougher than others, just
keep in mind the yellow/red card rules.

3) If you head the ball after a long kick, the momentum of the ball stays with it.

4) If you delay the timing of your slide tackle, there is less of a chance of the referee
calling a penalty.

5) Learn to keep your eye on your defending player as well as your goalie (goal keeper).  When
the opponent's team puts the press on you, be aware that your attention must be split between
to active players as opposed to one.  Remember, a goal keeper closes the door to victory for
the opponent's team.

6) Sometimes CPU controller teams will pull off moves with near perfect precision.  Do not be
discourages!  See if you can duplicate the moves or make up patterns of your own.
