Time is running out. Nobody expected your team to be in this final game, let alone tied with the tough national team from Argentina. As the seconds tick away, the crowd's cheers grow to a deafening roar. The clock is down to under two minutes. Your team has to make its move now!
Your winger slips the ball past the Argentinian defender. He sees you open in the middle and places a perfect pass at your feet. This is your last chance, can you make this shot count?
Goal! is an extremely realistic one or two player soccer game. A player can play against the computer, a friend, or cooperatively with a friend against the computer.
