You may have noticed a number of new football-related titles warming up in the App Store tunnel, yet only two have entered the fray so far.
Kicking off the 2010/11 iPhone season, Real Football 2011 from Gameloft stepped out of the iOS changing rooms earlier in the week, complete with a ringing endorsement from World Cup winner David Villa.
Hot on Real Football 2011’s heels – sorry, studs – comes FIFA 11 by videogame behemoth Electronic Arts.
This third instalment on iPhone of the monster console franchise features a number of gameplay enhancements, including 360-degree player movement, a new D-pad and button configuration, and gesture-driven skill moves.
With over 500 international and club teams – all updated with summer transfers - available to shimmy, shoot, and shuffle as, FIFA 11 offers would-be Wayne Rooneys plenty of depth.
FIFA 11 takes advantage of the Retina display on iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G, making Titus Bramble’s inevitable mistakes even clearer on screen.
So, the nets are up, the ball’s on the centre circle; jog on over to the App Store now and collect FIFA 11 for £2.99 / $4.99 / €3.99.
