EA Sports released FIFA 17's first patch earlier this month in the hope it would fix the game's many problems - but it hasn't.

While certain updates have improved overall gameplay, a number of infuriating glitches remain.

Upon FIFA 17's release, videos emerged of random red cards being given to players, penalties being taken without a goalkeeper and Jeremy Mathieu scoring a free-kick from 45 yards.

That's without mentioning the bizarre mod that involved players kicking around an FA Cup-shaped football with pieces of the stage scattered on the pitch.

A fresh video has now emerged demonstrating another glitch on FIFA 17, featuring West Ham's Dimitri Payet and the rabona skill.

In the below footage, Payet goes to shoot with his right foot but instead finds the top-right corner with the most awkward looking - and ridiculous - rabona, beating the goalkeeper all ends up.

So much for FIFA 17 being the most realistic football game yet...

EA's latest instalment certainly hasn't been without its problems. Last weekend, upon the release of Battlefield 1, gamers complained about being unable to play FIFA 17 online.

The issue has since been resolved but what's apparent is the sheer amount of 'outage' from FIFA, Battlefield and Madden 17 is causing all kinds of problems.

So much so that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users have been threatening to demand refunds.

Indeed, when EA's online servers went down, they said: "EA is currently experiencing an outage. EA games, services & support may be impacted. We're working to resolve as fast as possible."

Damn technology.
