European Soccer Challenge is the second soccer game released for the Lynx. It can be played by one or two players via ComLynx connection.

The game offers friendlies and a tournament. The tournament features 32 teams, with three two-legged tie rounds plus semi-finals and finals. Players can select from more than 120 club teams from 32 European countries. Tournament progress is saved via passwords. Options include three difficulty settings (determining how much tackling is automatic), match length (between 4 and 90 minutes) and a selection of controls.

A match is seen from a bird's eye view perspective. The Lynx' two buttons trigger high and low kicks on offense and regular or sliding tackles on defense. The low kick button is also used for volleys and headers in the appropriate situations.
