Man, thanks anyway. I will try to install new OS in the evening - it might help. But still EA should provide us with a fix because it really a mess!

Compared the dxdiags to my PC... all have short machine names!

Renaming the PC to a longer name fixed it for me, the goalkeeper stays where he belongs now...

 

Good howto from MS: http:/windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/change-computer-name#1TC=windows-7

 

 

(Mod edit: 

 

We've received reports from FIFA 15 players on PC that their teams and goalies run to and stay in midfield during gameplay. This seems to affect FIFA 15 players with PC names of four characters or less. Our team is investigating and working to resolve this as soon as possible. 

In the meantime, please rename your PC using more than five characters until we have a permanent fix. Thanks for your patience and stay tuned for updates.

This sounds like the wierdest fix ever. If someone can confirm it, it would be ridiculous as it sounds insane.
