    Viva Football is a new type of soccer simulation that recreates all the passion, excitement and unpredictability of the real thing.

    The game employs a unique control system that gives players complete control. Shots, passes and crosses can be hit exactly as the player wishes; devastating through-balls are knocked with breathtaking accuracy; nifty one-twos, feints and dummies out-fox your opponent. Viva Football is flexible enough to offer experienced players pin-point accuracy whilst ensuring first-timers can pick up and play without frustration.

    Using polished, hi-res 3D, combining speed with impressively realistic visuals, Viva Football allows you to play as as any international team from 1962 to 1998: from Brazil 1994 right down to the 1970 Netherlands Antilles team. Pick from any of the 987 teams with 1 974 authentic kits, 16 224 players and 259 584 player attributes. And with the help of PlayerChat’, the players shout to each other whilst politely pointing out where the ball should be played to.
