In attack, players analyze space more effectively, curve their runs to stay onside, create passing lanes and vary attacking options.Varied Defending Options - Slide Tackle targeting has been enhanced so skilled players have more reach and avoid tackling through the dribbler. Better effort clearance logic, such as sliding to block crosses and overhead kick clearances, give defenders more tools to prevent goal-scoring opportunities.Refined Goalkeeper Intelligence - Numerous improvements mean that goalkeepers now have more urgency and better perception of where to intercept loose balls, resulting in a more responsive and powerful rushing system. New animation warping technology provides game-realistic goalkeeper positioning and momentum, resulting in more varied scoring opportunities.Manager Mode Authenticity - More than 50 major improvements were designed to create an authentic experience to mimic the real-world game.

Select exactly how many attackers and defenders you want in play (eg 11v11, 5v5, or even 5v3), and practice in open play or from set pieces.Customizable Set Pieces - Design and record your very own free kicks and corners on the training ground for use on match day to outwit your opponent.
