EA leaves FIFA and changes its name! FIFA 22 could therefore be the last chapter of the saga to be called in this way, with the mandatory conditional for the moment but with new rumors in this regard that seem to confirm this track.
As reported by VGCEA has filed multiple registrations for a new brand, which should be the name of the Californian house's next football video game. The name in question is simply EA Sports FC, which should serve as the official name of the series should discussions with FIFA lead to the end of the collaboration.
It should be noted that today the franchise is officially titled EA Sports FIFA, which makes the idea of how FC, which stands for Football Club, is the real name of the next game. This is certainly not a disengagement of the North American company, but at least a way to re-discuss the terms of the collaboration with FIFA if not its interruption starting next year.
EA Sports Group general manager Cam Weber said: "Looking ahead, we are also exploring the idea of renaming our global EA Sports soccer games. This means that we are reviewing our naming rights agreement with FIFA, which is separate from all of our other official partnerships and licenses in the world of football."
UEFA Nations League 2021: France beats Spain to win the tournament
France defeated Spain in the 2021 UEFA Nations League final, played in San Siro, Milan, Italy. Victory in comeback for France, under in the second half due to Oyarzabal's goal.
It took Benzema a minute to re-establish parity with a splendid right-footed shot before Kylian Mbappé scored the winning goal in the final. The transalpines thus become the second national team to register their name in the roll of honor of the competition after the triumph of Portugal in 2019.
France had a better start in the first half and already on 5 'became dangerous with Benzema, good at skipping Unai Simón, but his cross in the middle was neutralized for a corner by the Spanish defense.
Spain tries to respond, controlling possession. In the second half the match remains balanced, but devoid of emotions. At least until the 63rd minute, when Theo Hernandez goes one step away from the advantage: his conclusion is printed on the crossbar.
A minute later, Oyarzabal runs deep, Upamecano stumbles and the Spanish forward scores the goal. At 66 'Benzema marks an unstoppable trajectory for Unai Simón with his right. Two minutes pass and Mbappé would have the ball for overtaking, but his lob with Unai Simón out of the posts ends just a little high.
Mbappé made no mistake in the 80th minute, when he beats the goalkeeper of the opposing team. In the 88th minute, Lloris' intervention on Oyarzabal's splendid volley shot was decisive. France is champion of the second edition of the continental tournament.
