Did you ever had to substitute your starting GK?

Did anybody ever have to substitute the starting GK? I play football games since FIFA 98/Winning Eleven 2000 and NEVER had to substitute my starting GK. It happened in Winning Eleven/PES to have my GK expelled from the game, but never had an injuried GK. Never.

In FIFA, I don't even remember having my GK expelled (or the CPU's GK), and I don't remember having a penalty kick caused by a GK, neither...

    I want to say I have had penalties caused by a GK just to be safe but I can't think of a specific time... maybe you are right.

    But regards to substituting GK.. nope never. I don't ever put a spare on the bench.
    I basically just sell everyone except my main one in career mode (otherwise they whinge that they arent playing) and scout a youth one to sit in reserves lol

    I do the same thing! Haha
    But I had trouble with International Callings. They called both GKs (even my 70 rated Ivory Coast's backup!).

    Once in Fifa 16, I scouted a GK and he was already rated 78 with 17 years old! I think he finished development at 89. Darren Wedderburn was his name.

    Once my GK was injured during practice, too. But never during a match.

    It's very rare but it does happen. I had it happen in my career mode last year. I was playing my second keeper in europa league and he got sent off and had to bring on my number 1. It prompts you to place an outfield player in goal or substitute one for your sub goalie. Doesn't seem to happen online though which it should

    I mis read the topic. Thought you meant having to use a substitute goalkeeper. No I don't think I've had one injured during a game

    I often get Red card with my GK because I like to run around and slide the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ outta everyone.

    I have substituted my goalkeeper in the past, because he parried the ball to the opponent for the 2nd time in one game. It cost me the cup, so this fool had to leave the game (I know it's Fifa scripting of course).

    The GKs are weird in FIFA... They are dumb and clumsy most of the time, but they are absolute gods on 1vs1 situations. Any GK playing for the CPU will perform the match of their lifes when playing against you, doesn't matter their rating.

    They can read minds (so it makes nearly impossible to dribble them) and will ALWAYS know to what side you'll try to dribble. And they can even ignore the Newton's Laws and can just jump through your striker's flesh and grab the ball straight from their feet and it wil NEVER be a penalty.
