Lately, American football has been getting all of the attention, but EA is looking to bring that other popular form of football back into the spotlight by showing off some brand new screenshots of the upcoming FIFA 11, while also providing us with a few details.

First and foremost, FIFA 11 will be sporting improved, high resolution graphics that will look especially crisp on the iPhone 4′s and the new iPod touch’s Retina display.  The game will allow you to take the field with worldwide superstars like Real Madrid’s Kaká and Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney.   It will include more than 500 teams from real leagues around the world, and over 50 authentic stadiums.

EA appears to have tweaked the controls quite a bit as well, with new dual control options that provide more gameplay sophistication for veterans and simplicity for those just getting into the game.  Fans will be able to pull off defense-splitting passes, powerful shots, penalty kicks, and pro-style tricks in no time.

FIFA 11 will be arriving in the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch sometime in October.  Take a close look at the screenshots and tell us what you think about EA’s latest FIFA offering.
