Description

Rather than attempting to simulate the whole of football, this title concentrated on the goalkeeper's task of saving shots. In each match you will face a succession of shots from different distances and angles, and aim to save as many as possible. 16 teams were included for you to select your team and opposition from. There's a practice mode, and a skill challenge, where you move up through the game by saving 4 successive shots. The C64 version has a little sampled speech and extra sound.

Trivia

The game was licensed by England football goalkeeper Peter Shilton. The title was a slightly dubious attempt at cashing in on England's unfortunate defeat at the quarter-final stages of the 1986 World Cup, when Argentina beat them 2-1, the first goal being scored by Diego Maradonna, which the referee gave even though replays proved that he had punched it into the net with his hand. Maradonna infamously referred to it as 'The Hand of God'. Notice the slight difference in spelling of his name, presumably to avoid a lawsuit.
