You can choose the skill level of the opposing team on a scale from one to five, so as your team improves, so do your opponents. Select a computer team or play against a friend. You even choose the length of the match, and as time ticks down, do your best to score the winning goal!

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):

    WORLD CUP EXCITEMENT



    Your passes have to be crisp and your goal shots have to hit the opening with unerring accuracy if you're going to have a chance at winning this fact-action game. Soccer is the world's most popular team sport. And this top-level video game is loaded with all the excitement of World Cup play--kickoffs, throw-ins, goal kicks, offsides, and the corner kicks. The action never quits.

    GAME PLAY: You bring the ball downfield with evasive dribbling maneuvers and a few quick passes to your teammates. You try to set up for a shot on goal while keeping the ball away from the defense. Pick your slot, aim y our shot, and let one fly. The defense moves to steal the ball and block your shots! Tie games get settled in penalty kick sessions so practice your skills. You can play against the computer at five different skill levels or with a friend.
