If you did a quick medal count between Cesc Fabregas and Park Ji-Sung, the difference is quite a relevation. Cesc’s only club honors for Arsenal are one FA Cup medal from 2004-05 and a Community Shield winner’s medal from 2004 (but that doesn’t really count, does it?). Park Ji-Sung, on the other hand, has won the following with Manchester United: four Premier League trophies, 3 League Cup winner’s medals, one Champions League winner’s medal, one FIFA World Club Cup and one Community Shield medal (although that is a token piece, in my opinion). That doesn’t account for his medals he won in Japan and in Europe for PSV Eindhoven.

However in a sneak preview of FIFA 12 (see above video), FIFA 12 Gameplay Producer Santiago Jaramillo explains how a player’s vision attributes will affect the game in FIFA 12 — and shows that winner’s medals aren’t everything. The example he provides shows the difference between Cesc Fabregas and Park Ji-Sung getting the ball. You would think in a video game that it wouldn’t make much of a difference, but you might be surprised by the results.

When FIFA 12 comes out, I know which midfielder I’ll be making sure plays in my team!
