  1. Whatever you say but tackle is not working at all whatever I try. MAYBE they works somehow but is impossible to get close to the running attacker to do it. If I press the shoot button the player only stops and makes a hilarious movement, if I press and hold L2 still not doing anything that can help. Another huge problem is that the goalkeeper is not defending at all, no matter what button I press he just stops and watch the ball going into the goal.

  2. Pls I want to use normal direction buttons is hard for me using the joy stick in fifa 17 ps3 , is giving me hard time rectify this, pls kindly help me out, I will be hoping for your favorable response thanks.
