I tried the First Kick demo's Training mode yesterday. Unfortunately, you don't get much of a chance to practice the more advanced techniques against the CPU, and it's 3-on-3 instead of the typical 4-on-4. Teaching is one thing, but actually executing the moves in an actual match is a completely different matter.

And just as a side note, you can't even control Boom Boom, which is a big step backwards when compared to what you could do with the Kritter goalkeepers.
