World Trophy Soccer (also known as European Club Soccer) is a reworking of Manchester United Europe, using the same side-view gameplay and a wider view than Krisalis' other football game of the time, John Barnes' European Football.

All the teams who were in contention for one of the 3 main European tournaments as they were at the time of the game's release are included, although with fictitious player names and a few inaccurate kits. Cutscenes detail the match's progress, while a referee is active on the screen. The game can be played in arcade or simulation modes, with 6 different formations available.

While names are fictional and were created from combining different names from real footballers and football-related persons, there's still a Ronald DeBoer in Twente (number 7). On the other hand, Portuguese teams got names as fascinating as Emilio Ivic, Manuel Mladinov and Tomislav Antonio. I guess there really were a lot of eastern players around here back in the day.
