Now, if you’ve played this section, you would have noticed how easy EA Sports has made it to score.

In fact, even with minimal power and no direction, Ronaldo will bang it into the right hand corner 99 per cent of the time.

After all, they want to make their cover star look as good as possible.

But what happens if you do all you can to miss? Does the game remember in someway? Does it penalise you later on?

YouTuber DTT wanted to find out.

He aimed as far away from the goal as possible then got Ronaldo to hoof it in to the crowd.

Sadly, all we get is an upset looking Ronaldo and one very relieved looking keeper. The game then continues to play.

It’s a huge missed opportunity if you ask us.
