The 10 Unwritten Rules Of FIFA 18 For Gentlemanly Competition

FIFA 18 is out and all over the world football fans are getting stuck into the latest iteration in the best selling football game franchise.

Whether you play online, or offline against your friends, there are a few guidelines to ensuring that the game is played in the correct manner for maximum enjoyment, and to violate them would not be advised.

Some are more offensive than others, but if you don't want to lose friends or become an enemy of someone you have never met, you would want to know the dos and donts of playing FIFA 18.

Unless it's a worldie, skip the replays.

We don't need to see you tapping a rebound in from three different angles. Get on with it.

Passing the ball sideways when you are through on goal will result in an insult.

The single most divisive issue in the history of FIFA. Everyone has their own view, but it never feels good when it happens to you.

If a corner is cleared to the edge of the box you've got to try and volley it like Paul Scholes.

If you don't, you're no fun as while the chances are low, the reward is spectacular.

Playing a 5-at-the-back formation on ultra defensive is an open invitation to celebrate any goals obnoxiously.

You deserve every 'Shhhhh' celebration you get for your anti-football ways.

Never refuse to change kits if you are the away team.

If you can't be reasonable with your kick choices it's a red flag as to what can be expected in game.

Scoring own-goals on purpose is the lowest of the low.

Just quit the game, don't waste both of our time. What does this possibly achieve?

Going 1-0 up then passing the ball around your back four is an act of cowardice.

You clearly did something right to take the lead, why not have confidence you can do it again?

Dabbing will be interpreted as a show of disrespect.

Adding insult to injury, you know exactly how it will be received.

Never hit 'Play Match' without first going to 'Team Management'.

Calm down, I'm setting my team up the way I like because I'm a tactical mastermind.

If you win, act like you've done it before.

Nobody likes a showboat. Don't sent messages online, and don't rub it in if you're in person. Take the high ground.
