Attempt to thrash the computer with the most substantial score-line possible. This can be attempted with any team, on any difficulty, and on the maximum time limit. In the past, we’ve seen Germany’s Patrick Hadler (pictured below) beat the computer in FIFA 13 with a victory margin of 307 goals!

Try to score the most goals against the computer on the game’s highest difficulty in a 10-minute match. Challengers must choose the same team for the AI as they choose for themselves (e.g. Real Madrid versus Real Madrid), but they are free to tailor tactics, formations etc. for their own team accordingly - pre-planning is essential.
 
Again, this is set on the game’s highest difficulty against the computer. Players must select identical teams for both themselves and the AI. However, they are free to change any of the options in team management for their team only.
