Trivia

Cover

The German front cover shows the Andreas Möller. He won the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund and the European Championship with the German national team (both 1996).

Offside

The 32-bit version of FIFA 98 was the first game in the series to do a proper interpretation of the off-side rule. Until then, most players turned off the option because if a player was offside, doing anything else with ball except running stopped the play immediately - even if the ball was passed backwards and nowhere near the offside player!
