Each of the players on the field is guided by his or her own Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is mostly based on that player's unique characteristics. Twenty different personalized attributes were created for each character. This helps keep the game going by directing the players to tend the goals, set up for defense, pass the ball, etc. The only player not run entirely by his/her own AI is the player you currently control.
