FIFA 17: Exciting features make for an impatient wait

The upcoming FIFA 17 is not just the most graphic-rich football game made for the console, PC and smartphone platforms, but it also offers some new features. The game was first showcased at the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) gaming event in Los Angeles in June, and ever since, EA Sports has released trailers showcasing the new features which will lift the entire experience of playing a FIFA game to newer heights.

FIFA 17 Exciting features make for an impatient wait

The game will be released in September on Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. In case you cannot wait, the game is up for pre-order on Amazon.in for Rs.3,999.

New attacking technique

One of the highlights of FIFA 17 is the new approach to attacking and finishing. The game allows players greater control over the ball while attacking. The driven finish mechanics will help players keep the ball low in any situation. This will come in handy when players want to go for a low hard shot aimed at the bottom corner of the goal post. This will prevent balls from flying high if players apply too much power. This will also help players head the ball down during corners.

Set Piece rewrite

Developed with the assistance of Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez, this feature provides more options during gameplay. It allows users to be more creative and improve their chances of scoring goals. For instance, during a free kick or penalty, players can approach the shot in multiple ways and from various angles. Players can step back and control their run-up to the free kicks or penalties to deceive the goalkeeper. Taking shots from different angles and changing the length of the run-up will affect the spin and the movement of the ball. It will also add a marking option in the game to help players convert looping passes during free kicks into goals.

Active Intelligence System

This feature makes players a lot smarter, especially when it comes to understanding attacking opportunities. Developed with the help of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus, players in FIFA 17 will automatically move to spaces where they are in a better position to convert passes into goals. This was a key issue in FIFA 16, where players were often not ready or in a position to take passes.

Physical Play overhaul

Developed with insights from Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard, Physical Play allows players to handle physical tackles in a better manner. Instead of shoving or sliding, the players now have access to a physical play button which can be used anytime to use the players’ body to shield the ball, or receive it in a protected position, or push players from the opponent’s team backwards during a corner. This feature is powered by pushback tech developed by EA Sports.

It certainly looks that way…

 

Update:

 

According to an earlier tweet from Konami, the deal does give them exclusive rights to the stadium.

 

Original Post:

 

Konami announced today that they have signed a 3 year official partnership with FC Barcelona, giving them exclusive rights to the club, including the world famous Camp Nou stadium. The official statement from Konami makes no mention of exclusivity for the ground, but certain sites like Gamesradar, are reporting that this is the case.

 

Losing such a marquee stadium would be a bit of a blow for EA, it’s been a mainstay for many years, and the move also includes historic Barca Kits and former Legends for myclub, shorting EA’s picks for additions to Legends in FUT for FIFA 17 too. Plus, with this deal being for 3 years, if it does give Konami Stadium exclusivity then we wouldn’t see the return of the Camp Nou until FIFA 20 at the earliest.

 

Konami president Tomotada Tashiro said that this partnership was a real statement of intent. “By working closely with a team of Barcelona’s stature we can introduce the PES series to a huge global fan base. This partnership will deliver access to the very best players in the modern game and to one of the world’s most respected and ambitious clubs. The PES series is famed for its realism and control, so the fit between such a skilled team and a game that celebrates such ability is perfect.” 

 

 Here’s how the stadium will look in PES 2017.

fifa15guide – Nolito says he chose Manchester City move over Barcelona

ESPN FC’s Gab Marcotti says Everton are holding out for Man City to meet their asking price for John Stones.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has insisted that he will shake old adversary Jose Mourinho’s hand, when his side take on Manchester United on Monday.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, has reiterated the fitness of captain Vincent Kompany is the most important thing and not when the defender will play again.
The ESPN FC crew evaluate why Yaya Toure is still at Manchester City.

BEIJING — Nolito has said he turned down Barcelona to sign for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Nolito, 29, said he had a straight decision between the two clubs and opted to join the Premier League side in a £13.8 million move from Celta Vigo. 

Nolito started his career at the Camp Nou, where Guardiola promoted him to the first team, and said the Catalan coach was one of the major factors behind his decision to reject his former club.

“The truth is I enjoyed working with him in Barcelona even though it wasn’t much time,” he told reporters. “It’s a reason for me to come here but not the only one.

“It was also about City — they have a great team, it’s a great project, they got to the semifinals of the Champions League last season and the truth is I will try to help this club achieve great things.”

Asked if it was a straight choice between City and Barca, he replied: “Yes. It’s something I spoke about with my family and my management.

“I thought it was the best decision for me and my career. I have come to the Premier League to play with City under Pep Guardiola, who will play me in the first team and I am very happy with the decision I took.

“I wish Barcelona all the best. I am very proud of Barcelona’s interest, but now I am here and I think I made the best decision to come here.”

Nolito, centre, says Manchester City can win the Premier League title this season.

Nolito, who impressed at Euro 2016 despite Spain’s disappointing exit in the round of 16 to Italy, only joined up with his new teammates on their preseason tour to China.

But he has been impressed by what he has seen so far and believes City are capable of challenging for silverware in every competition this season.

“I have been here a couple of days, but I can see we have a good team and we can do anything,” he added. “Why can’t we win the league?

“It’s a different league, the hardest in the world, and I think we will try to win it. Let’s see what happens. [David] Silva, [Sergio] Aguero — they are players who play near me — they are good players. But they have good players from the goalkeeper to the strikers, they have a great team, we have it all.

“I think that it is one of the best teams in Europe. They have some of the best players and facilities in Europe. I am very happy with what I have seen so far.”

Nolito turns 30 in October but was a relatively late bloomer after spells at Barca, Benfica and Celta. He made 34 appearances for Celta last season, scoring 13 goals, and he insists he still has plenty to offer.

“I am 29, I am in the best form and shape of my career and I had a good year last year,” he added. “I am relaxed about it.

“I have followed my path in life, but things have started to come together now. I feel like I have done a good job wherever I have gone.”

Manchester City sent groundsman to Beijing over pitch concerns – source on fifa15guide

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has insisted that he will shake old adversary Jose Mourinho’s hand, when his side take on Manchester United on Monday.
The FC crew breakdown how they see the rivalry between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho unfolding in the teams’ first meeting.
Gael Clichy says the players are enjoying Pep Guardiola’s approach as they prepare for their ICC clash with Man United.
Fabian Delph is enjoying working under Pep Guardiola, branding the Spaniard the ‘ best manager in the world’.

BEIJING — Manchester City sent a groundsman to the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing 10 days ago to try ensure their preseason derby with Manchester United goes ahead, a club source has told ESPN FC.

Concerns were raised about the state of the pitch following a deluge of rain in the Chinese capital. City responded by sending over deputy head groundsman Craig Knight to help local ground staff repair the pitch after large areas were hit by fungus, which made it virtually unplayable.

The Manchester Evening News reports that senior figures at the club are “bemused” that United did not do the same to save the high-profile fixture.

Despite Knight’s efforts, there are still worries that the game could be cancelled with the pitch set to take another soaking with more thunderstorms forecast before the kick-off on Monday night.

Both teams were due to train on the pitch at the stadium on Sunday but had to switch their training sessions to the nearby Olympic Sports Centre instead.

Pep Guardiola had to be handed a towel during his prematch news conference due to the temperature.

City boss Pep Guardiola and United manager Jose Mourinho share concerns about the pitch and are worried about their players picking up injuries. 

“We didn’t see the pitch but there is a lot of water in the last days so we understand it’s not in a good condition but OK we’re going to adapt and adjust,” Guardiola told a news conference.

“It’s our second game of preparation — the most important thing is that the players are not going to be injured.”

His comments were echoed by Mourinho, who said: “I think Beijing is unlucky because the pitch is very bad. I hope our players and City’s players can go home without injury.”

A decision to switch training from the Bird’s Nest Stadium caused problems for the prematch briefing, with Guardiola handed a towel to wipe his face as he answered questions in a sweltering conference room.

Mourinho held his prematch news conference on the side of the stadium pitch because of the temperature and cramped conditions of the press room.

fifa15guide | Man United boss Jose Mourinho: I want to win Premier League this season

Watch as Usain Bolt tells new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho he must make them win the title again.
The FC panel breakdown Manchester United’s loss to Borussia Dortmund and if it’s a bad omen for the start of their season.
Jose Mourinho says he likes the look of Manchester United’s home kit and is motivated to defend the shirt.
ESPN FC’s Paul Mariner believes Juan Mata will be valuable when it comes to the depth of Jose Mourinho’s United squad.

Jose Mourinho says he is targeting the Premier League title with Manchester United this season.

Mourinho takes charge of a United side that has not won the league since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, with Louis van Gaal’s fourth-place finish in 2014-15 their best since.

However, after reinvigorating the squad with the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly — and with Paul Pogba potentially following — he is optimistic that United are ready to challenge once more.

“I want to be champion,” Mourinho said in The Sun on Sunday. “To say before the season starts that the top four is the target? The top four is not the target. We want to play to be champions.

“If during the season we realise the points difference doesn’t allow us to fight for the title, we are going to establish a new title, and when you can’t be champion the next target is to finish top four.

“But day one, I don’t want to hide behind a bad season or no Champions League football to say we want to finish top four.”

He said United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, had not set specific targets on where the team should finish.

“There was no ultimatum,” he added in The Sunday Times. “The message from the owners and Mr Woodward was: get your three years, do your work, improve the team and bring us back where we belong during a three-year period.

“My message was that I wanted to win the title in the first season.”

Jose Mourinho won three Premier League titles during his time in charge of Chelsea.

However, United finished fifth under Van Gaal last season, which means they will take part in the Europa League group stage in Mourinho’s debut campaign.

The former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss said playing on Thursday nights will have an impact on their Premier League campaign and said: “You need to rotate players.”

He added: “[It] is very, very difficult for the Premier League. We play on the Thursday, you travel a lot. Then the Premier League doesn’t make any favours.

“You play Thursday and then I don’t think they are going to play us Monday, they are going to play us Sunday, probably at 12 o’clock. For the Premier League it is the worst. It is much easier to be a Champions League team than that.

“Obviously it is much easier to be what Liverpool were two years ago — no Champions League — and what Chelsea are next season with no Champions League.

“One complete week to work every week — that is a dream, that is a dream for a manager who wants to improve his team.

“So we are in the worst possible situation, but in this moment I want my players to think: ‘Every day I want to be champion and want to fight for the title.'”

Koulibaly focuses on World Cup glory after tumultuous year on fifa15guide

 Listen 

Football fans have many different ways of showing their support for players, but it was still unusual when, in one of the most poignant displays of solidarity, thousands of Napoli supporters held photographs of Kalidou Koulibaly in front of their faces before a Serie A game earlier this year. FIFA.com talks to the Senegal international about 2018 FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers, his time in Italy and standing up to racism in football.

Solidarity and success
The protest action by Partenopei supporters came during Napoli’s match against Capri and it was a show of solidarity with the towering 25-year old central defender, who a few days earlier had racist abuse chanted at him by Lazio supporters. The referee had halted that match and only restarted it a few minutes later, after discussing the matter with both teams and coaches. The player, who has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea in the last few days, said he tried to ignore the chants. “At first I did not pay too much attention, but when the referee had the courage to abandon the match, I understood,” Koulibaly said. “I was supported by my team-mates, players from Lazio came to talk to me, and after the game, I received many expressions of support.”

Ahead of their next league game a few days later, a group of Napoli fans issued a statement asking fans to print the photos of the defender to wear over their faces. Thousands of fans followed the call and when Koulibaly entered the stadium, he saw the display of solidarity. “When I saw our supporters with the picture in front of their faces, it really touched me.”

Thankfully, that was the only serious blemish on Koulibaly’s season, which otherwise was outstanding on the pitch. The young defender played in all but three of Napoli’s league matches in a season in which they finished second to Juventus and qualified for the UEFA Champions League.

On the up
Koulibaly was born in France to Senegalese parents and started his professional football career with Ligue 2 side Metz, before joining Belgian club Racing Genk on a four-year contract in 2012. His stay with the club was short-lived as two years into his contract Napoli made Genk an offer they could not turn down. He soon became a regular in the Neapolitan side and has not looked back since. Earlier this year, no less of a footballing legend than Diego Maradona, said that Koulibaly was the best defender in Serie A. “He can play at any level,” said the legendary Argentina playmaker.

Although Koulibaly played youth football for France, the defender last year decided to throw in his lot with Senegal and earned his first cap in a 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Namibia in September. Les Lions de la Teranga are the only team in the preliminary competition that have a 100 per cent record ahead of their final group game and are assured of a place at the finals in Gabon.

Koulibaly says he is thrilled with the successful run and dismisses talk of a straightforward group that was made up of Burundi, Namibia and Niger. “Whenever teams play against Senegal, they want to do really well, and each challenge is always different. Although I have only been with the team since September, I am already dreaming of playing at the finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.”

Eyeing World Cup return
Now that qualification for Gabon has been achieved, Senegal will turn their attention toward qualifying for Russia 2018. The west Africans have been drawn into a group with South Africa, Burkina Faso and Cape Verde Islands, with the first two matchdays occurring in October and November. “They are quality opponents, but our team is strong all over and we have the talent.”

The only time the Lions participated at the showpiece event of world football was in 2002, when they sensationally beat world champions France and reached the quarter-finals. “Our coach, Aliou Cisse, the team manager, Lamine Diatta, and the goalkeeper coach, Tony Sylva, all played in those finals. They have told us about their experiences and we want to relive them.”

The defender is full of praise for the former captain Cisse. “Since being appointed last year, he has rebuilt the side. In just over a year, he has already achieved results. I know that in Senegal, the fans and the media are demanding, and that is normal. But we must have time.

“The coach is very professional. He is demanding and sometimes hard, but for the players, it’s going well. His ambition is to make Senegal one of the best teams in Africa, and he will succeed. Senegal has the means to achieve that and to win titles. We may be about to begin writing a beautiful story.”
