This is one of the strong projects on Neo-Geo dedicated to football. There are two game modes here: saurus cup and vs mode. There are sixteen teams from different countries to choose from. Among them there is a Russian. The playing fields are quite small. During the match, you can see the referee getting in the way. You can even hit him if you want. The figures of the players are quite well drawn and endowed with movement dynamics. Before the start of the match, you can make your own permutations of the players. Goalkeeper control is also configurable (auto or manual). During the game, you can perform various beautiful tricks (hidden heel passes, kicks through yourself and others). The controls are consistently comfortable and fit well with the movements of the players. Musical accompaniment perfectly copes with its duties. It takes a step towards the realism of real football. During the match, weather conditions can even change (for example, it will rain), which affect the control.
