Choose a side to play on. Then, during gameplay, press Start and choose "Select Sides". Move your controller under the opponent's side and resume gameplay. Then, score as many goals as desired while under the opponent's side, then just switch back to your side again. This way you will have a big point lead, depending on how many goals you scored. This trick also works better when you switch back to your side near the end of the second half.
When you have won a game and a player sent off from the team you are controlling, you will see the ball move and go into a goal by itself.
When a goal is scored, sometimes the replay will show your own goal and the goalkeeper standing there, doing nothing, while the camera moves around.
Getting good players
Go to the options menu then to "Player Swaps". Swap all the good players desired onto the team you want to play as, then save that as a squad. Call it whatever desired. Then go to "New Season" and select "Current Squads" and play your team. This is useful for a third division team. This team now has all the good players.
At any time during play, hold R2 and move the Right Analog-stick to execute moves. Side to side does a stepover, back pulls the ball back, and rotating it in a circle does a maradona.
If you want to buy a player, bid for them about 1 or 2 million above the asking price. This ensures you of signing that player. Players that are worth buying include:Thierry Henry
Alexandre Del Piero
Ruud Van Nistelrooy
In the first year, it is almost impossible unless you bid over 5 million above the asking price to buy Thiery Henry, David Becham, Ronaldo, and Del Piero.
