‘FIFA’ and Sweaty Goals are the Rot at the Roots of English Football

Vice: England supporters have suffered plenty. I lived through the pain of seeing Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle miss their penalties during Italia '90. I suffered regular sights of Des Lynam's moustache, and bore witness to the very real horror of Gary Lineker doing his business on the pitch, rather than in adverts for crisps. But several years from now, when my kids are playing for England in their own semi-final against the Germans, it might not be a skied spot kick that costs us a shot at glory in the final. It could easily be EA Sports' FIFA (Soccer) series.

The story is too old to be commented.
