Don’t look forlornly out onto a weekend of shopping centres and national football teams disappointing you – EA SPORTS Football Club is here to put some pep into your days off with our latest challenge.
This time we’re heading to the MLS. The New York Red Bulls may be struggling to make the MLS Playoffs but they are 2-0 up against West Coast powerhouse LA Galaxy and cruising to victory. But, 83rd minute. Free kick. BECKHAM! How many times have we heard that name strangled by over-excited broadcasters? Can you get our commentating team out of their seats and score that free kick, then go on to tie or win the match?
The Challenge: Spark A Comeback Against the Red Bulls
Teams: New York Red Bulls vs LA Galaxy – you are Los Angeles
The Scenario: The New York Red Bulls are dominating LA with a deserved 2-0 lead, but LA has a free kick in a threatening position with Beckham standing over the ball. Can you battle back for at least a draw?
