Description

Play your favourite team as they make their way through the European Football championships. You can either select your team and let the computer's AI battle out each match, or take over control of the players and put the ball in the back of the net yourself.

This was Krisalis' second game in the sport genre, a sequel to Manchester United - The Official Computer Game.

Background graphics

The pattern on the background of the menus is based on the 1990-92 Manchester United away kit, the last of Adidas-designed kits for the Mancunian club. It would be later re-used into European Club Soccer.
