FIFA 17 produces infuriating goalkeeper error in extra time

No game can affect your mood quite like FIFA 17.

Enjoyable one minute and excrutiatingly frustrating the next, EA Sports' latest instalment is riddled with errors that often result in rage quitting or throwing your controller in anger.

We've all been there: it's 1-1 in the 90th minute and one of your players makes a ridiculous mistake to give away a last-minute winner.

Or perhaps you're dominating a game but just can't seem to score, while your opponent musters one measily attack and finds the back of the net to scrape a lucky victory.

Inconsistent is the word I think I'm looking for.

FIFA 17 players will now be all too aware of the game's many glitches. In recent weeks, we've brought to your attention footage of referees awarding random red cards and players taking heavy touches while clean through on goal.

A new video has now emerged of another infuriating FIFA flaw, this time involving a goalkeeper.

In the footage below, on FUT Champions, Eric Bailly passes the ball back to Thibaut Courtois only for the Belgian to completely miss his kick and allow Breel Embolo to score.


What's worse is the mistake came at 3-3 in the opening minutes of extra-time, meaning the player's opponent went 4-3 up and probably won the game. If that didn't result in a rage quit, I don't know what will.

EA have always had an obsession with creating the perfect football game yet 22 years on from FIFA 94 - the first ever FIFA game - and they're still trying.

They even released a patch recently to fix some of FIFA 17's many issues, but it doesn't seemed to have solved anything. Back to the drawing board.
