World Cup Italia '90 World Cup Soccer Super Futebol

Overview

World Championship Soccer (JP: World Cup Soccer, EU: World Cup Italia '90, SA: Super Futebol) is a Genesis soccer game and the first of its genre for the system. It is based on the 1990 World Cup event, which for that year was set in Italy, and features 24 international sides competing for the titular trophy. The game features a top-down, vertically-oriented perspective of the pitch.

Because the game was created several months before the 1990 World Cup, even before the qualifying rounds had concluded, the twenty-four teams the game features would not correlate to the actual twenty-four that competed in the event.
