Here's what happens when a penalty shootout on FIFA 17 never ends

There are certain scenarios on FIFA 17 that EA Sports simply didn't prepare for.

While the latest edition of the franchise is undoubtedly the most advanced yet, it's far from perfect, as a few YouTubers have uncovered over the past few months.

The Daily Trading Tips is particularly renowned for pushing FIFA 17 to the limit, such as when he tested what happens when you score 100+ goals in a single game.

Put simply, FIFA can't handle it.

Every scoreboard reads differently when the 100th goal goes in. Whereas the scoreboard that appears when a goal is scored reads 00-0, the scoreboard in the top left shows 10-0.

The scoreboard inside the stadium also has a mind of it's own, showing 99-0. 

Further more, each and every player on the winning side receives a match rating of 10 after the game - even the goalkeeper, despite doing nothing.

Another scenario is what happens when one team receives five red cards in a single game.

As DTT revealed, when the fifth red card is shown, the top-left scoreboard says a goal has been scored by the opposition team and the game finishes.

Martin Tyler then says: "And it's come to an end here with the final whistle. This is mayhem here. I've never seen anything quite like it, so many sendings off and the game can't continue."

So, on to the next one: what happens when a penalty shootout on FIFA 17 never ends? The Daily Trading Tips has once again discovered exactly that in the video below. Check it out.


It takes 30 penalty misses for something substantial to happen (see at 2:10). When Marcelo misses his attempt, Alan Smith and Martin Tyler deliver a special piece of commentary.

Smith says: "Anytime soon!" before Tyler adds: "Oh here we go again. This penalty shootout is never ending!"

It only gets worse for Smith and Tyler. As more and more penalties sail over the crossbar, they start messing up their commentary (see at 4:10).

And at around 3:46, the scoreboard in the top left stops registering misses and just shows blank circles instead. Clearly, FIFA 17 isn't programmed to withstand a never-ending penalty shootout.
