In the My Squad mode, you’ll be able to build your dream team by selecting the best official players from all the major leagues. To recruit players, you’ll have to use squad points. These will be received at the end of each match in all game modes. In addition, you can earn them when completing match objectives and answering the loading screen quizzes.

Choices have to be made during development so players get the best possible game in time without compromising quality. Custom character creation is a feature we had to cut in order to focus on gameplay.
