We don't usually report glitches in games unless it has unintentionally hilarious results - think dragons flying backwards in Skyrim. But when it involves a goalkeeper appearing to get down and dirty with a striker in FIFA 12, we thought it too rib-tickling a mishap not to pass on. Check it out below. Certainly tops Vinnie Jones …
See this is why footballers are truly the pinnacle of athletic ability, not only can he chase down his victim, he can assult him, finish off, then instantly get up and try to chase the ball again
...on second thought that sounds like I'm saluting sexual assault...
Whereas a cricketer would have taken 2days of foreplay before even taking their jumper off.
Back of the net ! Get in !
Serious Foul Play
Dragons flying backwards
Oh yes, HIL-AR-OUS! [sic]
... bugger me!

EA Sports - If it's in the game, it's in the game.

Reminds me of my favourite line of football commentary from a World Cup match:
"He shoots, and has Seaman all over the box"
Pity England lost though.
Good, but not as good as cricket commentator Brian Johnston's
"There's Neil Harvey standing at leg slip with his legs wide apart, waiting for a tickle” (1961)
"The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey" (1976)
and my favourites
RTE's George Hamilton commentating as Emilio Butreguanio leaves pitch: "He's pulling him off. The Spanish manager is pulling his Captain off!"
Ken Brown commentating on golfer Nick Faldo and his caddie Fanny Sunneson lining-up shots at the Scottish Open: "Some weeks Nick likes to use Fanny, other weeks he prefers to do it by himself."
The Football Bit
Oh and he's managed to squeeze it in! And he got it in from an impossible angle.
"Hah, bumhug! "
I see what you did there. Well played, sir.
That's the new penalty...
... for going offside.
You know what they say...
... any hole's a goal!
