You can score DIRECTLY from a throw in on FIFA 17

Did EA forget to check the rule book?

FIFA 17 may have been out for months, but we bet you haven’t discovered this.

One gamer has posted footage of him scoring directly from a throw in on the FIFA sub Reddit.

He first takes a huge run up before launching the ball across the pitch.

The keeper flounders and it ends up in the back of the net – probably because he’s not programmed to deal with the scenario.

Sadly, gamers were quick to point out the goal shouldn’t have been given, as it’s treated the same as an indirect free kick.

One fan suggests it may have been down to the ‘distorted hitbox of the goalkeeper’ touching the ball. This then registered it as a touch and therefore counted as a goal.

Take a look for yourself below.
