EA announced today that their latest installment of the FIFA franchise, FIFA 11
will feature one of Real Madrid's midfield. Please give a warm round of applause to Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite! Unfamiliar with that name? Oh! Sorry! The Brazilian is more commonly known as Kaka around these parts.
Not content to allow Kaka to receive all the spotlight, Manchester United's striker Wayne Rooney was also added to share that spotlight. Rumor has it that Rooney believes Kaka could never handle that spotlight properly on his own. He needed an Englishman to show him the way.
A new feature popped up on to the internet concerning FIFA 11
. You can now play as the goal keeper. I am sure that will be exciting for the entire 5 attempted goals you need to defend from. I kid! I kid! I enjoy soccer. From GameStop's website:
Be The Goalkeeper: For the first time ever, you will be able to take full control of your goalkeeper and command play from the toughest position on the pitch. Compete in all offline modes as well as with 10 of your friends in full 11 vs.11 online team play, competing against other gamers from around the world.
Bah! Forget playing as Wayne Rooney or Kaka, I am going to play as Robert Green and help the United States in their bid for a World Cup playoff berth!
