Can a team of goalkeepers win the league in FIFA 17?

It’s certainly an imposing strike force – with Neuer leading the charge

Up front, there’s a formidable strike partnership of Manuel Neuer and David dDE Gea – two keepers known for their footballing skills.

Joe Hart and Hugo Lloris are on the wings, with Bernd Leno and Thibaut Courtois in the middle.

Samir Handanović, Gianluigi  Buffon, Petr Cech and Jan Oblak make up the back four, with who else but Jack Butland between the sticks.

The team of keepers soon find themselves bottom of the table

Despite being a team of goalkeepers, they conceded four in their first match against Manchester United – and failed to score themselves.

Before long, despite a couple of goals from Neuer, Oxford United are languishing at the bottom of the table – with a goal difference of -9.

Then, something magical happens.

Oxford manage to beat Sevilla 2-1, with Buffon scoring a penalty.

Sadly, that glimmer of hope fades fast – and Oxford rack up more losses, ultimately leading to their manager’s demise.
