The Norwegians make believe you send FIFA suggestions regarding how to enhance the women's game. Their plans include more compact pitches, lighter balls and getting gamers toss the ball off free kicks.

They can create a letter from FIFA Leader Sepp Blatter, who covers his "response" towards the plans by writing: "HAHAHA these suggestions made my day. LOL."
