World Soccer Striker Eric Cantona's Football Challenge


World Soccer '94: Road to Glory is a soccer game best known as Striker in Europe. It was originally released on the Amiga and Atari ST computers, and was ported to DOS, Amiga CD32, Genesis and SNES. The SNES release changed the name for each region: World Soccer '94: Road to Glory in the US, World Soccer in Japan, Striker for most of Europe and Eric Cantona's Football Challenge in France.

The first game in the cult Striker series, this game features fast paced soccer similar to although Striker uses a 3D top-down view. The game has sixty-four selectable International teams that range from Brazil to Qatar. Every team is editable from the options menu.

The game was followed by multiple sequels. World Cup Striker (known as in the US) came out for the Super Nintendo the following year. Striker Pro, Striker World Cup Special and are all from the same series as well.


  • Super Cup: A straight knockout tournament featuring all sixty-four teams

  • League Mode: A custom league made up of as many or as little teams. Everyone plays each other twice
