    4. Basic Techniques
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Here are some basic techniques that you need to learn.
    
    ===============
    a. Dribbling
    ===============
    1. Control Ball and Maintain Body Orientation.
       - You will need this skill, when you one on one with your opponent. This 
         skill can be used to avoid tackle or pass your opponent. By pressing
         R2+Dpad. I usually do the trick like this: 
                               
                                  ___->
                              1__|2
    
         Kind of confusing, but Iíll explain that. I control number 1, and then your
         opponent ( number 2 ) is blocking your way, then you can use the trick
         that I told you above. By holding R2 and then press your Dpad up then
         right. You will be easy pass you opponent.
    
    2. Jump.
       - To avoid tackle, you can jump by pressing R2.
    
    3. Powerful Shoot.
       - By pressing L1+R1, your player will place the ball away from his foot,
         then he can shoot the ball more powerful because there is an empty space
         for him to kick. I usually use this with Goalkeeper.
    
    4. Dash Dribble.
       - You can use this if there are no defenders in front of you.
         Press R1+Dpad to execute it. Use this with player that have a 
         good running speed, like: Ronaldo, Owen, T. Henry, etc.
    
    5. Smooth Dash Dribble.
       - By pressing R2+Dpad you can dash with smoothly. I always use this, when
         i want to dash, but i want to pass my opponent too. With this, you can
         maneuver more smoothly.
    
    6. High Speed Dribble.
       - Press R1+Dpad(x2). This will cause a big gap between you and the ball. 
         You can use this in three ways: first, when they are no defenders in 
         front of you. Second, when you want to avoid tackle by your opponent, but
         in the meantime you want to dash. Then you can use this. I often too.
         Third, when your opponent pressing you, you can use this skill, so he
         can not steal your ball, because there is a big gap between your foot and
         the ball.
    
    7. Low Speed Dribble.
       - Donít press anything in your Dpad. Then your player will dribble the ball
         slowly.
    
    8. Stopping the Ball.
       - Press R1 during dribbling.
    
    =============
    b. Passing   
    =============
    1. Short Pass.
       - Press Dpad+X.
    
    2. Long Short Pass.
       - Press Dpad+X (hold X).
    
    3. Direct Short Pass.
       - After you pass to another player, immediately press Dpad+X again.
    
    4. Long Pass.
       - Press Dpad+Circle. Useful when you want to counter attack.
    
    5. Direct Long Pass.
       - Same as above, but press Dpad+Circle.
    
    6. Through Pass.
       - Press Dpad+Triangle. Useful when you have a good speed player. But often
         an offside get me.
    
    7. Through Pass In The Air.
       - Press L1+Triangle. Very good chance to scoring when you use this.
    
    8. 1-2 Pass.
       - When i played WE in my old Playstation. 1-2 Pass is very simple and easy
         to execute. Thatís my favorite trick. 90%, i`m winning because of this
         trick. But now, in PS2. Konami have made it more difficult to execute
         this pass. First you must press L1+X, your player will pass the ball to
         the nearest player. Then press Triangle, so your player can execute 1-2
         pass. I have difficult to do this, maybe you can.
    
    9. 1-2 Pass in the Air.
       - Same as above, but do not press Triangle, but press Circle.
    
    10.Manual Pass.
       - Maybe this is for advanced player only. I have a difficult time to do it.
         First choose the direction you want to pass with right analogue stick.
         Then press R3. This Manual Pass can be very useful if you can get used to
         it, especially if you have a match with your friend.
    
    11.Long Manual Pass.
       - Right Analogue Stick+L1+R3.
    
    12.Centering To The Far Side.
       - Press Dpad+Circle to center to the far side of the goal. Use this when
         when you in the right or left penalty box.
    
    13.Centering To The Near Side.
       - Press Dpad+Circle(x2) to center to the near side of the goal.
    
    14.Cross Along The Ground.
       - Press Dpad+Circle(x3). Very useful.
    
    15.Early Cross.
       - Press Dpad+L1+Circle.
    
    ==============
    c. Shooting
    ==============
    1. Shoot.
       - Just press Dpad+Square.
    
    2. Direct Shoot.
       - Immediately press Dpad+Square when your player gets the ball.
    
    3. Lob Shot.
       - Press Dpad+L1+Square. Very useful when you have a one on one situation
         with goalkeeper.
    
    4. Chip Shot.
       - Same as Lob Shot, but with different on how to do it. First press
         Dpad+Square. After to do that, quickly press R1.
    
    ===========
    d. Feint   
    ===========
    1. Step over Dummy.
       - Dpad(x2). Your player will do a step over fake maneuvers.
    
    2. Step over Dummy [2].
       - L1(x2) or move Right Analogue Stick twice. Not quite useful.
    
    3. Step over Dummy [3].
       - Press R2(x2) to do this trick. This trick exactly the same as step over
         Dummy [2], but with less maneuver.
    
    4. Kick Dummy.
       - Move Right Analogue Stick twice to any direction (right, right for example)
    
    5. Kick Dummy [2].
       - This is a fake shoot trick. Very useful when you one on one with
         Goalkeeper. By pressing Dpad+X, right after you press Square to shoot.
    
    6. Kick Dummy [3].
       - Or maybe if you want to do a fake long pass trick. Just press Dpad+X, 
         after you press Circle.
    
    7. Through.
       - Press R1 when you get passing ball from your teammates. Your player will 
          not accept the pass, but he will let the ball through his foot. Very
          useful to trick your opponent.
    
    =============
    e. Defense                               
    =============
    1. Pressure [1].
       - Just simply hold X.
    
    2. Pressure [2].
       - Hold Square to make your teammates pressing your opponent. Do this with 
         Pressure [1]. You will have 2 players, pressing your opponent.
    
    3. Sliding.

    1. Move the GK to the ball.
       - Hold Triangle. Your goalkeeper will chase the ball automatically. Very
         useful when you have an one on one situation.
    
    2. Move the GK manually.
       - This trick safer, than you hold Triangle. You can control the GK to
         the desired location. But sometimes can bring chaos.
    
    3. Drop Kick [1].
       - Press Dpad+Circle when your GK hold a ball.
    
    4. Drop Kick [2].
       - Press Dpad+Square when your GK hold a ball.
    
    5. Throw the ball.
       - Press Dpad+X when your GK hold a ball.

    8.  General Tips
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Here are some tips.
    
    =================================================
    1. Have a match with an advanced player or COM
    =================================================
    When i have to face an
    advanced player or your opponent team more better than your team, i usually
    sets the formation into defense formation. You can set the attack level to
    auto defense, move your player to the back with edit position, or maybe you
    can change player that have more defense status. Use counter attack often.
    Zone press can be helpful too. Change the formation to more players at the back
    like 5-4-1, 4-5-1, 4-4-2, etc. If in your opponent team have a very good
    striker, you can consider use man marking. This strategy often very useful.
    A defender will guard strikerís opponent all the way back. Finds your opponent
    weaknesses. Always read the situation on the field. 
    
    
    ===============
    2. Attacking
    ===============
    There are many ways to attack. My favorite attack style is crossing. My goal
    often come from crossing. Because i think, it is the easiest way to attack 
    without pass many defenders opponent in the back. But the chance to goal is
    small, sometimes i couldnít make a goal in 2x45 minute, so it had to end in 
    penalty shootout. You can combine crossing with other attack style such as, 
    middle attack, with 1-2 pass, through pass, or maybe corner kick. I have 
    specialty in free kick. So i refer to get a free kick in a match more often.
    
    Try long range shoot, if you have trouble pass the defend. A player like 
    Roberto Carlos shouldn`t have any problem to do a long range shoot since he has
    a powerful power. If you have a speed striker, do through pass. Or if you have
    a midfielder that have a good passing, do lots of crossing, etc. Just try to be
    creative to build an attack.
    
    ===============
    3. Defending
    ===============
    Always pressing your opponent. Don`t give him a chance to improve the
    Situation while he has the ball. Press X and Square to pressing with two
    players. Do ball clearing when the ball has reached the penalty area.
    
    When you have one on one situation. You are the Goalkeeper and have to face
    your opponent striker alone. I usually holding triangle to move the GK to the
    ball. Donít give him much space to shoot. But be careful, maybe your opponent
    can do a lob shot to avoid this. Always press your opponent all the time. Thatís
    all that i can say.
    
    ==============
    4. Freekick
    ==============
    Freekick is my favourite to scooring. A good freekick should be at 10-30 meters
    from the goal. Use Circle to shoot, do not use Square. 80% you will miss when
    you use Square to shoot.Don`t use two players in freekick, use one player.
    You can aim more easy and accurate with just one player. If your distance is
    10-20 meters, use 1/4 power in the shoot gauge. 20-30 meters, use 1/2 power.
    I usually use Beckham. So you must experiment yourself, if you use another 
    player. But the difference is not so far.
    
    Aim for the goalkeeper. Do not aim for empty space. Press Circle and hold Right
    or Left depend on your position. If your position like number one hold Left,
    if like number two hold Right.
    
    ___________________ 
                       |
              1   _____|
                 |     |

              2  |_____|
                       |
    ___________________|
    
    If, aim for goalkeeper not work, try to aim the bar (the fence). It`s very hard
    to execute, so practice a lot in. I spend almost 2 hours just to practice this.
    
    
    
    =================
    5. Corner Kick
    =================
    Corner kick also your chance to scooring. If you have a tall striker in the 
    front, maybe you can use it. If you have a corner kick from left of your 
    opponent goal, use a left foot player to execute it. Use right foot player when
    you have a corner kick from right. Hold Right if you at the right side, and 
    hold Left if you at the left side.
    
    ========================
    6. Formation Settings
    ========================
    In tactics menu, you will see "Manual" and "Semi-Auto". I suggest, you choose
    "Manual". Because you can sets the tactics as you wish. You can predict, when
    you will use the tactics. So the tactics will more useful to you. You can make
    the tactics on/off by pressing L2+X, L2+Square, L2+Triangle, or L2+Circle 
    during the game. 
    But if you prefer to use "Semi-Auto" is a good too. But your chance to
    get advantage of the tactics will decrease. COM will determine, when is the 
    right time to execute the tactics, so must adapt with the tactics that COM use.
    It`s very hard to me. For example, you already sets Right Counter Attack for
    Semi-Auto, and then COM turn on the tactics. If COM turn on this tactics, then
    you should at the right side of the field to make this tactics useful, but very
    often COM turn on the tactics at the wrong time. maybe you`re now at the left
    side of the field, and COM will turn on the tactics. Now, all your players will
    concentrate to attack on the right side automatically. Leaving you alone on the
    left. The conclusion is COM just turn on the tactics without pay attention to
    your position and the ball. Frequently, you must aware with the tactics.
    
    And now about using Formation A or B. You will need this a lot.It is a good
    strategy to use. I usually make the formation setting like this. I sets the 
    formation A to attack strategy, and then formation B to defend strategy. So
    during the game, i can change the strategy quickly to attack or defend. Very
    useful strategy.
    
    Choose the players who has a good mentality (usually an older player) to be the 
    captain.
    
    ==============================
    7. Player Skill Translation
    ==============================
    
    I will translate player skill. You usually see this skill in formation setting.
    By pressing R2/L2 button in member change.
    When you press R2 once, i called this page one, press R2 again i called this 
    page 2, and the last is page 3.

    8.Master League Tips
    =======================
    In the beginning, after you choose start new game. A team member selection will
    appears.
    - Default ML teams: Use ML default teams.
    - Match Mode Roster
    - Original Team Roster: Your original team participates in the league. You can
                            replace it with any other begin team.
    
    If you choose Default ML teams, everything club you choose, your members will 
    be the default ML teams. So you can build your original team members as you
    wish.
    If you choose Match Mode Roster or Original Team Roster, your team will be the
    original team clubs that you choose.
    In my opinion, you should choose default ML teams. It`s fun to make your own
    dream teams. So i will give you some advice to build your dream teams.
    
    This is the list of Default ML teams members:
    
    No.|Position|Name
    --------------------
    1  |GK      |Ivanov
    4  |CB      |Valery
    3  |CB      |Dudic
    2  |CB      |Stemer  
    6  |DMF     |Cellimi
    5  |DMF     |Iouga
    8  |RMF     |Espimas
    7  |LMF     |Ximenez 
    10 |OMF     |Miranda
    11 |CF      |Baroja
    9  |CF      |Castelo
    22 |GK      |Kilsen
    13 |CB      |Vorlander
    12 |CB      |Cecia
    16 |DMF     |Harty
    14 |SB      |Edington
    17 |SMF     |Macco
    15 |SB      |Nachdecal
    18 |OMF     |Ostwat
    20 |CF      |Njargo
    21 |CF      |Huylens
    19 |WF      |Burchet
    23 |GK      |Zamenhof
    
    Use default formation for this members: 3-4-1-2
    Tactics:
    - Normal
    - Right Counter Attack
    - Left Counter Attack
    - Counter Attack
    
    In quick setting choose side attack. Side attack is useful with this team.
    The first thing if you want buy a player, you should buy side attacker first.
    Because the formation is 3-4-1-2. You must get advantage your wing attacker.
    But if don`t like that formation. You can change to 4-4-2. The first step, you
    must buy a SB player since you do not have enough SB to make 4-4-2 formation.
    After that you can buy a striker, and then CB, and the last is goalkeeper.
    I suggest you to use 4-4-2 formation, since this formation has very good 
    attack and defense.
    
    This is the formation, players, and tactics that i suggest.
    
    Formation: 4-4-2
    
    Position|Name
    ----------------
    GK      |Dida (Brazil)
    CB      |Silvestre (Manchester United)
    CB      |Jorge Costa (Spain)
    SB      |Zebina (France)
    SB      |Roberto Carlos (Brazil)
    DMF     |Tommasi (Italy)
    RMF     |Pires (England)
    LMF     |Beckham (England)
    OMF     |Dyer (England)
    CF      |Owen (England)
    CF      |Raul/Del Piero/Totti
    
    Tactics:
    - Right Counter Attack
    - Left Counter Attack
    - CB Overlap
    - Zone Press
    
    It`s good to have more younger player in your backup team.
    
    You can watch your player skill growth, in growth sheet. Young player can 
    growth more fast than older player.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    9. Challenge Training
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    I will give you tips on how to complete all the challenge training.
    
    First after you choose start new game. This menu will appear:
    
    - Select Challenge
    - Save Data
    - Option
    - Back to Mode Select
    
    Choose "Select Challenge". After you choose that, a menu screen will appear.
    You can select the challenge categories by pressing Down or Up. And you can
    choose the difficult by pressing Left or Right. The difficult is shown by a 
    star. One Star is the easiest and Five stars is the hardest. But, since this
    is your first time, you can not choose the difficult.
    The categories is:
    - Dribble
    - Short Pass
    - Manual Pass
    - Free Kick Long Pass
    - Free Kick Shoot
    - Ball Keeping
    - Offense
    - Defense
    
    After you choose one of the categories above, you can choose your player.
    
    =======
    Dribble
    =======
    1 Star: You can use beckham to do this challenge since his dribbling skill is
            awesome. Try to press R2 for smooth movement.
    2 Star: Same as above.
    3 Star: Same as above.
    4 Star: This is more difficult than the last three. You will face a guard in 
            here. Try to use R1 to stop the ball.
    5 Star: Press R2 to feint the guard.
    
    ==========
    Short Pass
    ==========
    1 Star: This is an easy training. You can use Beckham, Zidane, and Figo since
            these people have a very good dribbling. Use direct pass to get more
            combos.
    2 Star: This time you have 4 players. You can use Raul for the 4th player.
            There is one defender to catch your ball. So be careful.
    3 Star: This time you have 3 players and 1 defender as your opponent.
    4 Star: 4 players with 2 defender. Use direct pass to make more combos.
    5 Star: 3 players with 2 defender.
    
    ===========
    Manual Pass
    ===========
    1 Star: Use Beckham again for this challenge. Pass the ball to the blue fence
            or try to get the ball near to the blue fence. If you can pass from a
            far distance, the score will gain more.
    2 Star: Same as above.
    3 Star: Same as above.
    4 Star: This time with one defender.
    5 Star: Same as above.
    
    ==================
    Freekick Long Pass
    ==================
    
             
    ____|____|_________ --> This the power gauge.
       1/4  1/2
    
    1 Star: Use Beckham. Change the target a little bit to the right since Beckham
            is right foot player. Press Circle for about 1/4 bar.
    2 Star: Same as above. But this time press Circle for about 1/2 bar.
    3 Star: You have 3 chance to score. The first attempt, press circle for about
            1/4 bar. The second attempt, less than 1/4. The third, also less than
            1/4.
    4 Star: Use the power between 1/4 till 1/2.
    5 Star: Same as above.
    
    ==============
    Freekick Shoot
    ==============
    1 Star: Use Beckham. Change the target to the right. Press Square for about 1/4
            bar.
    2 Star: Use power between 1/4 - 1/2.
    3 Star: For above target. Hold Up+R1+Square. The power is 1/4 - 1/2.
            For below target. Hold Up+R2+Square.
    4 Star: For the upper left target. Change target to the Right. Press Square
            (1/2 bar) and hold Left.
            For upper right target. Change the target to the Left. Press Square 
            (1/2 bar) and hold Right.
    5 Star: For upper right target. Press Down+R1+Square (1/2 bar).
            Same for upper left target.
    
    ============
    Ball Keeping
    ============
    1 Star: Just keep the ball in your possesion at your opponent penalty area.
    2 Star: Same as above but with less players.
    3 Star: Same as above.
    4 Star: This time you cannot hold the ball to one player for 5 seconds. So you
            must pass to the others before the time reached 5 seconds. And also
            the amount of opponent player will increase during the game, so be 
            careful.
    5 Star: This time you cannot hold the ball for 4 seconds.
    
    =======
    Offense
    =======
    1 Star: Just shoot the ball into the goal.
    2 Star: One defender will guard you. Use Through pass to pass him. Be careful
            to offside.
    3 Star: 2 defender will guard you. You can use feint moves to pass them.
            Also use a speeder striker.
    4 Star: You only have 2 players. I suggest you to use Owen and Zidane since
            Owen is a good running striker. So you can pass your opponent using
            Through Pass a lot.
    5 Star: Maybe you can use Owen in this challenge. Pass your opponent for a 
            minimal 2 players.
    
    =======
    Defense
    =======
    1 Star: Just slide or intercept to stop the ball.
    2 Star: You have two players.
    3 Star: You will have three opponent.
    4 Star: This time 4 opponent.
    5 Star: 5 opponent.
