  1. I love how the crowd just sit there in complete silence. Remarkably accurate recreation of the atmosphere between Crystal Palace V West Brom, circa 1980.

  2. First footie game for me. Then came Emlyn Hughes International Socer and Microprose Soccer.
    Ahh, those were the days.

  3. Fab blast from the past! I owned a c64 back in the 80's. I remember it came as a cartridge (high tech for the time). The game was later updated and rereleased as "Emlyn Hughes International Soccer" in the late 80's.

  4. Not a touch on Emlyn Hughes’s International Soccer which had penalties, back passes and the ability to play passes at different angles and more. But graphically very similar as if this was an earlier inferior version. Although this game had a lady with bleach hair presenting the cup whereas there was no such ceremony with EHIS. Memories…..

  5. My god just been transported back 35 year….where has my life gone…..can imagine in another 35 year people look back @ FIFA fir the PS5 and say exactly what we’ve said and thought about this.

  6. What amazes me is not once, back then, did i think the graphics were bad or even really think about them. Proves gameplay is the most important thing and props to Nintendo for always focusing on that

  7. Great game! Thanks for posting. The "bounce it on the head" trick from kick-off was always a goody! 🙂

  8. Fu 1 dei primi videogame a cui giocai e sicuro il 1mo di calcio, 1984/85, all'epoka avevo 7/8 anni.

  9. This game was a revolution when it came out.
    Kids today could not even begin to understand it..

  10. At the time it was released, it was both the best and worst football game on the C 64. Even when I was playing it with no other alternatives, I thought it was rather daft.
    Years later, Microprose's Soccer came out and blew everything else out of the water. But I'll say this for Commodore's International Soccer: it was fun to play against a friend.
    Microprose Soccer was incredibly hard when playing against the computer.
