Just like every single summer over the last few years, we can start to take a glance at the best football games for the upcoming season. It's time to start thinking about the exciting 2020-21 season we have ahead and the new games that are waiting for us. A season that will have its reflection on the two major football video games out there: on the one hand, FIFA 21, developed by EA Sports, and on the other, PES 2021, implemented by the guys at Konami.
Both contenders will fight for the honor of being the best football title on almost all platforms (Android, iPhone, PC, Xbox, PlayStation...), but if there's a game that can stand up to these two on Google's mobile operating system, that's definitely the Dream League Soccer or DLS franchise developed by First Touch Games, who have just released their new game for this season.
However, this isn't a pure football simulator although if you want to focus on dribbling, tackling, shooting, and passing on the pitch, you can do so without any further problems. Each year, at First Touch they improve the game's artificial intelligence to make the players less predictable whilst they also improve the graphics and animations, although they're not yet at their best.

But the strongest point of DLS 21 is definitely its management aspect, thanks to which we can become a renowned manager capable of taking our team from third division to the summit of football and have nothing to envy of Mourinho, Guardiola or Zidane.
