epad has one) or press ESC.
If you are using a gamepad as your primary control device, within the FIFA 16 la

T or SPACE screen that you press SPACE or ENTER.
Once in game, you can customize your game experience in CUSTOMISE -> SETTINGS ->
CUSTOMISE CONTROLS. Note: You must enter this screen with the control device yo
