There are plenty of myths floating around the FIFA community. Players contend scripting is in the game – although developer EA Sports has always denied this. There are often accusations of pack weighting in favour of prominent players of the game. And then there’s the curious case of Nick Pope’s height.
Nick Pope is a talented goalkeeper who plays for Premier League club Burnley. According to Burnley’s official website, he’s 191cm tall. That’s just over 6’3″.
But! In FIFA 21 (and past FIFA games in which Pope has appeared), Burnley’s number one is listed as 6’7″. That’s a tip-toe over 200cm.
