I think EA did good job with the pace downgrade. Finally you can catch up to running scrubs.
That doesnt mean that Mertesacler should catch Martial when you are 5yards infront and kicking the ball into space! If you dont flick right joystick, you will be slow with the ball on your feet, but withojt it your pace should be just fine.
Good job, but needs some tuning with kicking the ball while sprinting.
