Introduction:

Before you begin, understand that other than Legendary Streak , every other trophy is quite simple but I will cover the that trophy later in the Guide. Always play in Beginner and 5 min matches, as you will win every game but do note that only need to play on a higher difficulty in myClub.

Walkthrough:

Step 1: Versus mode

Play versus with two controllers to get most of the generic trophies first, they’re simple versus the computer but much easier if you play with a second controller. This will cover at least eight trophies and a few extras when completing the match to its completion. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Comeback King 
Possessive Streak 
Super Sub 
World Class 
The Sniper 
Phantom Striker 
Impregnable Fort 
Final Twist 

Step 2: Versus cleanup + Misc trophies

Here you will need to complete specific matches, though nothing too difficult and the last trophy is the most fun. Two of the trophies cover versus mode as you can play against the com and a second person. An exhibition match which is very similar to vs com but in a different menu. The last trophy sees the return of a superb mode called Random Selection Match as you can pick whatever team, league or nationality/region so your front three could be Messi, Ronaldo and Bale as I had in the game I played for them trophy. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Played Exhibition Match 
VERSUS (COM) 
VERSUS (2 PLAYERS) 
Random Selection Match Kick Off 

Step 3: Performance Training

You can tackle this in any particular order but it’s advised you complete from Basic to Expert as the challenges do become tougher but you only need to finish each with a silver ranking rather than gold. Gold is advised as you will get 600GP for each gold you acquire. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Silver Collector: Basic 
Silver Collector: Intermediate 
Silver Collector: Advanced 
Silver Collector: Expert 

Step 4: Tournaments

Three tournament trophies are followed in this step as you will need to win just one game in each of the three licensed tournaments in UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and AFC Champions League. You can choose whatever team you prefer, not just the teams which have qualified for the tournament. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Won in UEFA Champions League 
Won in UEFA Europa League 
Won in AFC Champions League 

Step 5: Be A Legend

Unlike earlier incarnations of this mode you don’t have to play a match, unless you want to be guaranteed top assister and scorer of a tournament which the latter will mostly happen automatically. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

The Debutant 
Championship Winner 
League Best Eleven 
Best European Footballer 
Best South American Footballer 
Best Asian Footballer 
World Footballer of the Year 

Step 6: Master League

Even though the next step is more stressful, most of your time should be played here, I say play but you actually don’t have to play any matches to achieve the trophies. Each match can be skipped but unfortunately, only one match at a time and you will need to skip a lot of matches to gain A True Star. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Won in Master League 
To Pastures Anew 
My Favourite Players 
A True Star 
Owner’s Trust 
League Champions 
European Treble Winners 
Latin American Treble Winners 
Asian Treble Winners 
Leading The Nation 
World Champions 

Step 7: Online trophies

Online is very similar to myClub but you can play as any team and you will need to win a few matches and participate in a few more, nothing too difficult but be warned that a few trophies will only pop if you’re the host. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Have a Try Online 
Lobby Host 
First Online Division Win 
Promoted in Online Divisions 
First Win: Competition 
Team Play 
Win a Casual Match 
Win a Clan Match 

Step 8: myClub

MyClub is the hardest mode in Pro Evolution Soccer, because of the Legendary Streak  trophy. This will be the Plat breaker for most people so be prepared to put in a lot of hours and practice to get it.

Most of the trophies will be unlocked via one win and then promotion which at Division 12 requires one win. If you were lucky enough to get a good Team Of The Year player which is given as a pre-order bonus then vs com will be exponentially easier but still incredibly hard. At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

myClub: 1st Divisions Win 
myClub: Promoted in Divisions 
myClub: 1st Divisions (SIM) Win 
myClub: Divisions Promotion(SIM) 
Training Match 
Legendary Streak 

Once you have all of the other trophies, Ultimate Player  will pop.

 Ultimate Player 
Perfect Collection

Earn all the other trophies to get this one.

 Comeback King 
Won after coming back from 3 goals down

This trophy can be combined with many if not all of the miscellaneous in the game as I suggest playing every mode on Beginner. You could allow the opposition to score three goals and then win 4-3 but to allow a quicker experience, score three own goals and then hit three goals of your own in quick succession preferably one being from 35 yards when using two controllers, use player 2 and have their goalkeeper run out with the ball, tackle him and score for a very easy gold World Class.

Don’t hit the fourth until stoppage time which is the time after the 90th minute but not extra time. Have one of your players preferably a substitute or defender to unlock Super-Sub and Phantom Striker dribble the ball around the opponents goal and when clock passes 90 then score and you’ll unlock some very easy trophies. As you will be holding the ball for some time Possessive Streak should’ve unlocked too.

 Possessive Streak 
Had the ball 65% or more of the time and won the match

See Comeback King

 Super-sub 
A substitute scored

See Comeback King

 World Class 
Scored in open play from 35m or more (excluding Set Pieces)

See Comeback King

 The Sniper 
Netted a free kick from 30m or more

In previous PES games when a free kick or corner was taken, a line would appear to show where the ball will travel to but unfortunately that isn’t the case this year so the trophy is a little harder if you’re not very good at free kicks. Still playing with two controllers, dribble your player around 30m from goal and use player 2 to slide using O, as you will be unable to see where the ball if going hit a few tries until you fell that the ball will travel into the goal comfortably. I didn’t unlock the trophy until my 10th attempt. I did make the opponents goalkeeper the minimum height but it made little difference.

 Phantom Striker 
A defender scored a goal

See Comeback King

 Impregnable Fort 
Faced 20 or more shots on target and kept a clean sheet

Just use two controllers and have player 2, hit long range shots will little power allowing your goalkeeper to save them. Hit a total of 20 or more and the trophy will unlock and the final whistle will blow.

 Final Twist 
Pulled off a win by scoring in stoppage time

See Comeback King

 Played Exhibition Match! 
Played Full Exhibition Match

From the Main Menu, go: Play Now => Exhibition Match. You can play as anyone and this very easy trophy will unlock.

 VERSUS (COM) 
Got match data against COM in VERSUS Mode

From the Main Menu, go: Play Now => Versus. You will have the option of playing Versus the computer or a second controller, choose either option and you will unlock this and VERSUS (2 Players). I suggest the latter match being used for the miscellaneous trophies mentioned in the Road Map.

 VERSUS (2 Players) 
Got match data in VERSUS Mode

See VERSUS (COM)

 Random Selection Match Kickoff! 
Played a Random Selection Match to the final whistle

From the Main Menu, go: Play Now => Random Selection Match and from here you can mix and match any team you like with the system picking which players you get. I tried Arsenal and Tottenham versus Manchester City and Manchester United, the possibilities are endless. All you need to unlock the trophy is finish the match.

 Won in UEFA Champions League 
Awarded for defeating COM in an [UEFA Champions League]

From the Main Menu, go: Competition => pick any of the three tournaments. Now play and win one game of each, then the trophy will pop.

 Won in UEFA Europa League 
Awarded for defeating COM in the [UEFA Europa League]

See Won in UEFA Champions League

 Won in AFC Champions League 
Awarded for defeating COM in the [AFC Champions League]

See Won in UEFA Champions League

 The Debutant 
Awarded for making an appearance in [Become a Legend]

This and Won in Master League will require you to exploit the editing of one player, team or playing this mode as intended with a made-up player and not a 109 rated one.

The main editing you need to perform is which league you play in, as most top leagues play 38 matches but for this mode you want to play the minimum which is 26. Go to edit and Competition structure and then draw size, each of the default leagues can be changed to 14 teams allowing for shorter seasons. Then take whatever team you like and place them in that 14 team league. Unfortunately you will need to edit three teams for all trophies in this and Master League as Barcelona cannot be placed in Asia or South America. Edit a whole team of Barcelona players or whatever team you like and pick one player, I picked Messi for my Be A Legend player and just simply skipped one match a time, unlike other years you will notice that the player will actually perform in matches by scoring and assisting. For this trophy, just complete one game and it will pop soon afterwards.

 Championship Winner 
Awarded for winning the League Title in [Become a Legend]

This will unlock when your chosen team wins the league. If you have edited the whole team, then this should be incredibly simple and possibly early in the season.

 League Best Eleven 
Awarded for being picked for the Team of the Season in [Become a Legend]

To ensure you’re picked in the team of the season you may need to play a few games as your team may out perform you if they’re all 109 rated. Perform in a few matches near the end of the season, making sure you have the most goals and assists. To check this, go: My Team Info => Info on Entered Competition.

 Best European Footballer 
Awarded for winning the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award in [Become a Legend]

This trophies applies more to how well your team does in the Champions League more than the league but win both to ensure World Player of the Year. Unlike the awards for league best player and cup, this award won’t be given until August when the first group stage draw is made of the second season. I’ve never seen it unlock in the first season.

I personally unlocked this and the later three trophies not by scoring three goals every game but by scoring more than everyone else. I used Messi who scored 30 in the 26 games and second scored 27 and it didn’t matter about needing 70 plus which would’ve been needed in previous years.

 Best South American Footballer 
Awarded for being named South American Player of the Year in [Become a Legend]

This is very similar to Best European Footballer, with the only difference being that the league is played in two parts and you must win both seasons being the best, as well as having the most goals and assists. Once you have met the requirements, this award will unlock in December.

 Best Asian Footballer 
Awarded for being named Player of the Year in Asia in [Become a Legend]

The Asian award is also won in December. I can’t really elaborate more as all three trophies are virtually the same just awarded at different times.

 World Footballer of the Year 
Awarded for being named World Player of the Year in [Become a Legend]

The award is handed out in January and I’ve only been able to unlock this trophy playing as someone playing in the European league claiming all rewards mentioned in Best European Footballer.

 Won in Master League 
Awarded for earning a win in [Master League]

If you have edited your team like I mentioned in The Debutant walkthrough, then the rest of this mode will be immensely easy but very long because of World Champions and True Star but I will come to that. For this trophy, just win one game and it will pop. After I finished my Master League with a superb team, I ended with 400 wins because True Star took some time.

 To Pastures Anew 
Awarded for moving teams in [Master League]

At the end of the season you’re offered another job, I suggest making a save beforehand, then reloading when you’ve unlocked the trophy as you want to stay with your superb team.

 My Favorite Players 
Registered a player to My Favorite Players in Master League

A few games into the season you have the choice of selecting your favourite player, which is found by going: Manager’s Office => Management Career => My Favorite Players. For my edited team, I picked Alexis Sanchez.

 A True Star 
Team Roles in Master League: Obtained a Legend or Bandiera

This will be the longest trophy, I’ve seen other guides of unlocking in just a few seasons but for me it unlocked at the end of the 2025/2026 season but that was in a 26 game season with Neymar and A. Sanchez both reaching the milestone. Both players were Maestros and then Superstar and Virtuoso before making it to Legend. Keeping players in your team for many seasons will help with this trophy and improvement too, both of those players were at one stage rated 96 after growth spurts.

 Owner’s Trust 
Fulfilled your owner’s demand in Master League and raised your Owner’s Trust

All you need to do is follow what your owner wants. I unlocked this after winning my first trophy which was the Charity Shield and after a few more games, my owner’s trust had risen to 100% and it never dropped from there.

 League Champions 
Awarded for winning the League Title in any of the Top Leagues featured in [Master League]

If you have been following what I’ve been saying throughout the whole guide and edited your team to maximum stats then you will easily win the league via Skip Match which is the PES version of simulating. The quickest I was able to win the League in any of my simulated saves was March.

If at any time you feel that you may not win the league, simply play a few games in which you will easily win since I suggested you play on Beginner (very easy) difficulty.

 European Treble Winners 
Awarded for winning the League, UEFA Champions League, and League Cup in a [Master League] season

Edit Barcelona like I’ve mentioned and make sure you win all three leagues. The latter two competitions, may require you to play the second leg in the UEFA Champions League as the team could have lost the first leg or save beforehand and if the team loses you can simply reload and try again. Not having the auto-save on can help so you don’t skip the match and can’t find an old save.

 Latin American Treble Winners 
Awarded for winning the League, LATAM Champion, and League Cup in a [Master League] season

As with European Treble Winners, I suggest editing Sao Paolo and winning the treble.

 Asian Treble Winners 
Awarded for winning the League, AFC Champions League, and League Cup in a [Master League] season

WE United was my team of choice and I unlocked most of the Master League trophies with them, as my whole squad was transferred in but not edited. I had the likes of Donnarumma, Neymar, Mbappe, Bellerin and Pogba who all reached 90+ overall.

 Leading the Nation 
Awarded for becoming a national team manager in [Master League]

I found the earliest time you can unlock this trophy is after the second season which makes the next trophy a little harder, since you will get the job after the previous tournament has been held. You need to qualify for the next one and win, thus using up three seasons of simming but you will be doing this on your way to True Star.

 World Champions 
Awarded for becoming an International Cup Winner in [Master League]

Mine personally glitched on me when getting to the final and winning, even though I unlocked the GP for winning the tournament I didn’t unlock the trophy and I didn’t have an older save so it required me to play a further four seasons to win the tournament when I actually played. Make sure you save before the final and if the trophy doesn’t unlock for you, reload and play the match.

 Silver Collector: Basic 
Awarded for obtaining Silver in all [Basic] level Skills Training

All four Silver Collector trophies are pretty simple, as the difficulty will rise but there’s nothing too hard. Most of the passing and shooting are easy, just be careful when your opponents are involved. Simple stuff, the game instructs you and can help with the rest of the game.

 Silver Collector: Intermediate 
Awarded for obtaining Silver in all [Intermediate] level Skills Training

 Silver Collector: Advanced 
Awarded for obtaining Silver in all [Advanced] level Skills Training

 Silver Collector: Expert

 Have a Try Online 
Kicked off against another user in Quick Match

From the Main Menu, go: Match => Quick Match. You only have to kick off and can quit right after but it won’t harm any statistics, though you may upset the other person.

 Lobby Host 
Kicked off as the host in a Friendly Match Lobby

Like with Have a Try Online, you only have to kick off then the trophy will pop.

 First Online Divisions win 
Awarded for winning your first [Online Divisions] match

First Online Divisions win and Promoted in Online Divisions can be combined as one win will allow the chance to promotion without having to play the other eleven games in the division. After the win, simply press and you will advance. The win could happen after one game or five or whatever, I personally unlocked it after three games as the other two were played against a very good opponent. Eventually I played a clean game and won 6-1 as my opponent kept bringing their goalkeeper out and I passed it around them.

 Promoted in Online Divisions 
Awarded for being promoted to a higher division in [Online Divisions]

See First Online Divisions win

 First Win: Competition 
Awarded for your first win in an [Online Competition]

This is a time sensitive trophy as I was only able to see a competition open on the weekend. You just need one win and like the aforementioned online win you can get good games and win or lose unfairly. All I can suggest is to keep trying and eventually you will succeed.

 Team Play 
Kicked off while taking part in a Lobby

Go: Online Match Lobby => Team Play Lobby, then kick-off. The trophy should unlock as you kick the ball to your teammate at the kick-off, you can choose to continue the game or not, entirely your choice, I personally played until the finish.

 Win a Casual Match 
Won a Casual Match in Online CO-OP

Even though Win a Casual Match is supposed to be done against a random teammate and Win a Clan Match is meant to done with a friend a friend, I earned both with the same person. The Clan win was easy because we had similar tactics, then we both started simultaneously searching for a match against the A.I and found each other pretty quickly. Once we won that second match, the trophy popped.

 myClub: 1st Divisions win 
Awarded for winning your first [Divisions] match in myClub

The myClub trophies are fairly similar to the division win versions but the difference is you will be playing with a club made up of random players you obtain. I will mention my full team in Legendary Streak but playing early in myClub could be easy or later as the team you play will be random.

I’ve faced superb teams with bad people controlling them and vice versa, as you cannot determine who you will face, I even tried to connect against a friend and it never worked. I unlocked this trophy and sim division win on my 5th and 2nd try as simulating is a little easier you only have control over the substitutions. Winning both games will allow promotion. Be warned that when an opponent quits, you will get the points for a promotion but not the trophy for a win. You can also achieve promotion on three draws, but ensure you win to get the trophy.

 myClub: Promoted in Divisions 
Awarded for being promoted in myClub [Divisions]

See myClub: 1st Divisions win

 myClub: 1st Divisions (SIM) win 
Awarded for winning your first [Divisions (SIM)] match in myClub

See myClub: 1st Divisions win

 myClub: Divisions Promotion(SIM) 
Awarded for winning promotion in myClub [Divisions (SIM)]

See myClub: 1st Divisions win

 Training Match 
Kicked off while taking part in a myClub Friendly Match

This match will allow you to play with your myClub team against another player but ranking means nothing, just kick-off or play. I personally played and it was an enjoyable game without worrying of needing the win.

 Legendary Streak 
Awarded for winning 2 in a row in myClub VS COM with Match Level set to Legend

This trophy is not easy and will likely take many attempts to get right.

To unlock Legend you are required to win games on Superstar which unlocks the difficulty but I unlocked it in exhibition playing as my super edited team vs a terrible team on Superstar. I suggest playing myClub so you get used to the team you will be using.

Going from Regular to Professional is quite simple as you will win plenty of games with a wide margin like I did but then the step up to Top Player can take time as you will need to win two in a row on each Weaker, Medium and Stronger to advance like the previous year.

I struggled with Top Player stronger for a lot of games as I kept winning one and either drawing or losing the next, then I got better players and made the next step to what last year stressed me out on Superstar.

Another I’d say 40 games to get the six wins required I reached Legend for the first time, after like Top Player I was stuck at the same game over and over again.

Legend is no joke. Even though you’re facing a weaker side of 50 rated players, some of them play like Messi and the ball is stuck to their foot. After my first game I got a 0-0 and I was thrilled and little confident oh did that change when I was destroyed by Dybala and lost 4-0. Then I was demoted back to Superstar and needing more wins to progress.

This was a running pattern. My total on Legend was 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. Not bad but remember it has to be in a row which is awful.

Scripting, if you’ve never heard of it, prepare to see it. Scripting on PES is something I’ve never experienced first hand until playing Legend, which is a thing where say Messi can be caught by a slow defender with ease. I experienced this a lot getting through the games where a small player will out jump an enormous defender.

Anyway to the good part, I did eventually get two wins in a row and the first win was incredible a 4-0 win with R. Sterling scoring a hat-trick after my main RWF was out of form. Then the second win was the most intense I’ve had in PES, 87th minute winner after my goalkeeper made 12 saves, he was superb and then the trophy unlocked. I literally ran around the house liked I had actually scored.

You can either tough it out and hope you get some decent players or cheat a bit and spend real cash on buying some players. Here are the ones I managed to buy:

G. Donnarumma 85
David Luiz 86 l A. Laporte 85 l R. Varane 85 l T. Meunier 83
Iniesta 87 l L. Modric 91 l Koke 87
A. Griezmann 91 l R. Firmino 86 l S. Mane 87

M. Reus 88 l K. Mbappe 85 l M. Icardi 85 l D. Maradona 84 l R. Sterling 83 l N. Semedo 83 l U. Bolt 76

With that team I had speed and strength in both ends of the pitch but I had two stars Griezmann and Mane who I used merely to run down the wing and cut it back to someone in the box, something which was so simple but effective on Superstar and a few times of Legend.

I can’t give much advice as people play differently but what I can say is when you take the lead, don’t pass the ball between your defenders and goalkeeper like last year as the A.I is smarter this time. Instead have someone hold the ball in the opposition corner and keep dribbling up and down until the final whistle. I used Modric as he had the best ball control.
