FIFA 14 has finally arrived in the Windows Phone Store, giving football (or soccer, for our American readers) fans the chance to kick off with over 600 licensed teams and 16,000 players.

It’s taken EA an awfully long time to bring the sports simulation title to Microsoft’s mobile OS, however. FIFA 14 launched on iOS and Android last September, which highlights the problem Microsoft faces in attracting not just high-profile apps, but feature parity and timely updates for Windows Phone 8.

FIFA 14 is free to download, but additional game modes such as Manager and Kick Off are unlocked with in-app transactions. With 33 leagues to choose from, the only question is: Who are you going to play as first?
