Details

In this soccer game, each team has one forward, two backs and a goalie. The forward and backs always run in formation. You only control the goalie when he has the ball, otherwise he is computer controlled.

The game is played in 2 halves with the object to score as many goals as you can in the time allowed. The allowed time varies by game setting. (see Game Variations below)

Difficulty switches
Left for player one, right for player two.
Set to A to make your goal wider, so as to give the other player an advantage.
