New screens featuring Gallic artistry as FIFA launches a pre-emptive strike in the clash of the season

What's the best way to win those titanic footy encounters? Get a significant strike in before the opposition can react and that's the strategy EA seem to have adopted as the mighty FIFA franchise takes on Pro Evo 5, in one of the most remarkable footy face-offs this autumn.

With the thrills of the Ashes drawing to a close and England losing the plot in the face of Northern Ireland's superb display the other night, football fever is set to grip the nation all over again, and we don't mean the thrills of the Premiership. Nope we're talking footy on your gaming screen and it should be first strike to FIFA with a release timed for the last day of this very month.


So we've got a brand new selection of nine FIFA screens for your delectation featuring some Gallic flair and invention, plus a spot of England wunderkind Wayne Rooney. They're quite large, but well worth the view in our opinion.

We'll be sure to bring you the very latest on the big match showdown, when FIFA trots onto the pitch later this month.
