FIFA 17 Physical Play Upgrades
FIFA 17 allows you to use your player's body more to control the ball. This starts with Pushback Tech that changes how you trap the ball, dribble and defend with more realistic options and actions.
You can control the ball and shield it so that another player cannot interrupt your plan to pass once another player opens up.
The new physical play includes goalkeeper collisions for the first time as well as cross body tackles. You'll see better 50/50 battles and more player jostling and battling for position when the ball is in the air than you did in FIFA 16.
This includes a new option to shield the ball in 360 degrees to keep defenders at bay as you move up the field. Expect a more physical style of play than in FIFA 16.
