TriviaTaking advantage of the first qualification for a major competition since 1986 and the dominance of the Sega Saturn, the game was heavily marketed in Portugal, and was one of the first localized titles released in the market. A massive TV campaign included FC Porto players Domingos Paciência and Vitor Baía (which also gave interviews about the game) was started before the tournament and commentary was provided by the late Jorge Perestrelo, who would provide commentary for EA's games in 2003.
