FIFA 21 Player Discovers Bizarre 'Red Card' Glitch That Completely Breaks The Game
A FIFA 21 player has captured the moment a defender committed a red card challenge and wasn't sent off for it - while winning a free kick for his own team.
EA Sports' hit franchise is well known for having quirky bugs but this one could be the weirdest of the lot.
In the clip posted by marktobias on Reddit, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is through one on one and bursts into the box before being taken down by Joe Gomez.
The challenge sees Gomez catch the ball and fire it into the back of the next, but it's pulled back for a foul. On top of that, the Liverpool man is only booked and somehow wins a free kick for his team.
Aubameyang is miles onside, so the free kick decision comes completely out of the blue.
Fans commented on the glitch and they think it's genuinely game-breaking and could cause massive problems online.
One fan said: "Yellow card for the assault and the free kick was because you didn't let Gomez catch you and block the shot like you're supposed to."

While a second added: "How tf can they make this game so bad. Firstly this should be a clear red because Gomez was the last man and it was a clear cut chance, and secondly it should be a clear free kick...."
Another tried to explain what had happened, stating: "I think the reason it was given against OP was because his player, after being completely destroyed in what should've been a red card, collided with the keeper.
"So I think the game is assuming he fouled the keeper, and Gomez was booked due to the millisecond advantage played before that."
Professional footballers have even begun to shine a light on glitches in FIFA 21.
Jota was preparing to take a penalty with his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo but the ball was stuck on the line and his opponent's goalkeeper appeared to be stuck behind the net.
He captioned the video: "Great thanks @EASportsFIFA" - accompanying with a laughing emoji but looking a little displeased when he panned the camera on himself.
Back in April, avid FIFA player Jota was crowned the Premier League's best FIFA player after a five-day tournament - beating future Reds teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold in the final.
