Two weeks on from its release and gamers will be all too familiar with FIFA 17's many flaws.

EA Sports have made an admirable attempt to create the perfect football game, but the harsh reality is their latest instalment once again features a number of bugs.

Last week, we brought you a video of FIFA 17 giving the most bizarre red card, where the 'guilty' player was dismissed having done absolutely nothing wrong - literally.

And then, yesterday, in-game footage emerged of one gamer taking a penalty with no goalkeeper in sight, simply sliding the ball into an open goal.

Another video has now surfaced (see below) and instead of revealing a FIFA 17 glitch, it highlights an infuriating issue that has long plagued the game.

With AC Milan's M'Baye Niang clean through on goal and just the goalkeeper to beat, he inexplicably pulls up with an injury, gifting possession back to the opposition.

TYPICAL FIFA...

The user is 4-2 up at this point, and while there's no commentary, you can still imagine them going absolutely mental when his player started hobbling and gave up the goalscoring opportunity.

Back to the drawing board for EA, then, who have a number of issues to rectify when they eventually release a patch.

Perfection is out of the question - there will always be flaws with a complex game such as FIFA - but there really are some glaring errors in the 2016/17 edition.

Injuries are part and parcel of football, of course, but for a player to pull a muscle as he bears down on goal is just ridiculous, not to mention extremely annoying.

And in case you were interested, here are the videos involving a random red card and no goalkeeper showing up for a penalty.

"WHAT FOR, REF?!"

EASIEST PENALTY EVER
