Cup ClassicsThe Cup Classics from 1966 and before are presented in black & white, and feature the old style ball (made of leather, stops like a dead weight, etc.) which behaves differently from the modern one. The two Cup Classics from the 30's (1930 and 1938) have an old film quality. The dress and hairstyles of the different eras are accurately portrayed (sideburns in the 60's, short hair in the 50's, very short shorts in the 70's, long shorts in the 50's, etc.). However, there are some inaccuracies:
ReferencesDuring penalty shootouts, if the player scores one of the possible commentary strings is "That's how we score'm, John", said by Chris Waddle. The same Chris Waddle that blasted his shootout spot kick high into the stands in the WC'90 semi-finals against Germany, which ended up in a tearful defeat for the British side. Germany went to win the tournament 1-0 against Argentina, and Italy beat England 2-1 for the third spot.
