How to Play: There are 16 teams in the tournament. Select your team (country) by Left Clicking on their flag with your computer mouse or touchpad. In each round, you play two-legged ties against the opposition. The winning team is the one that has the higher aggregate (combined) score over the two matches. There are 4 players on each team – a goalkeeper and three outfield players. Use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to move your hard-working outfield players around the pitch. Use the Z and X buttons to pass and shoot the ball.
Each match lasts 3 minutes. Keep an eye on the clock along the top of the game screen. You can only control one player at any one time (that player is the one with the green circle around it). Pay close attention to each player’s Fatigue Bar (tiredness bar) above their heads. If this turns completely from green to red – that player does not have sufficient energy to pass or shoot. You cannot control any player while the ball is in possession of either goalkeeper. Opponents are harder to defeat as you advance from one round of the competition to another.
