Nice try...

.. and that's it. The graphics may be funny if I were still in kindergarden, the challenge to beat the different nations is highly unrealistic - e.g. I can beat Italy or France in no time, but the "great" soccer nations Honduras or Ghana are unbeatable...

Therefore, the game is extremly frustrating. If you really want to play, play against a friend, that's at least a bit fun.

Thanks for your feedback.

Regarding the skill level of opponents, they are based on FIFA rankings. For example a team with a very low ranking will go the wrong direction when trying to save more than 50% of the time, while a team with high ranking will usually go the right direction. But luck is a factor, and playing the same team your results will certainly vary from game to game.

Also, while for example one may percive Italy as a great footballing nation compared to Ghana, Italy has a rank of 13 while Ghana has a rank of 15, so according to current ranking they are pretty much on par.
