A standard adult football match consists of two periods lasting 45 minutes each, known as halves. There is usually a 15-minute “half-time” break between them. Each half runs continuously, meaning that the clock is not stopped when the ball is out of play. The signaled stoppage time may be further extended by the referee. Football/soccer is played using a single round ball, and two teams of 11 players compete to get that ball into the other team’s goal, thereby scoring a point.
Time-wasting is illegal, subject to referee penalty, and countered by opposing team attempts to hurry up the restart of play. Nevertheless, the models showed that strategic time-wasting is widespread. The findings were consistent across many time-wasting opportunities. The empirical results and simulations offer clear advice to the soccer governing bodies. The goal of having a fair game with limited strategic rule-breaking requires a different set of rules, for example by stopping the game clock when the ball is out of play.

EFootball was met with overwhelmingly negative reception from critics and players alike because of the game’s poor technical and graphical quality, and its lack of teams and features. The game has gone through a complete overhaul as it tries to compete with the FIFA series. PES 2010 has improved animations and 360-degree control was introduced, available on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions of the game via the analog sticks on the respective controllers. PS3 owners benefited from this when using the DualShock’s D-Pad, but the Wii D-Pad is limited to eight-directional control and the Xbox 360 D-Pad to sixteen-directional control due to their hardware. The referees were reworked to make better calls during matches. It also features more licensed teams and players than ever before.
