    BASICS
    ===============================================================================
    
    Controls:
    `````````
    D-Pad         Move players and goalkeepers
    A             Perform Action

    Basics:
    ```````
    As you control the game you can switch actions and pull it off afterwards. For
    example, as you have the ball, use the Boot-Arrow action to do a short pass or
    shot. The three actions for outfielders while you have the ball:
    Boot - Arrow            Short Pass/Shot
    Boot - Arrow - Arrow    Long Pass/Shot
    Player ~ Player         Dribble
    
    While you don't have the ball, the actions are slightly different:
    Boot - Arrow            Slide
    Boot - Arrow - Player   Slide into Player (may result in foul)
    Player ~ Player         Run faster
    
    For throw-ins you only have two options:
    Arrow                   Short Throw
    Arrow - Arrow           Long Throw
    
    It's similar for goal kicks:
    Arrow                   Short Kick
    Arrow - Arrow           Medium Kick
    Arrow - Arrow - Arrow   Long Kick
    
    Corner Kicks:
    Arrow                   Short Delivery
    Arrow - Arrow           Long Delivery
    
    The game will automatically switch your control to the nearest player. There is
    no way to do this manually.
    
    
    Display:
    ````````
    The top half of the screen is the playing area. It takes up nearly all the
    space. The bottom part s for actions, current player number and the time left
    in the half. Your player has a small number over their head, '1' if you are
    Player 1 and '2' if you are Player 2.
    
    You only see the score when somebody scores, but you can press START to pause
    the game and see the current score displayed in the center.
    
    
    Menu:

    Press any key to begin.
    
    TEST PLAY: Play a single game against the computer. You can edit the original
    	   team roster to make your own.
    
    VS PLAY: Play a single game against each other. You can edit the original
    	 team roster to make your own.
    
    TOURNAMENT: Play a tournament to win against all opponents. You can start a new
                one or continue from a previous game. You may also trade players
                before you start.
    
    LEAGUE: Play a league, playing two games against every other team in the
            process of finishing 1st in the end. You can start a new game or
            continue from a previous session. You may also trade players before you
            start.
    
    For the first two modes you can pick between 3, 5, 10 or 15 minutes per half.
    At half time you don't actually get to pick anything but continue.

    Notice that all players don't have stats, and are essentially the same person.
    You can therefor also switch a striker to goalkeeper and achieve the same
    results.

    TIPS:
    ===============================================================================
    
    The goalkeepers in this game blow. Simply shoot long from around the area of
    the penalty box to have a good chance to score. They don't even catch the ball,
    but just leave it a their feet. Sure it's the same as catching, but shows you
    how lousy the game design is for the 'keepers.
    
    Dribble around to the side of the penalty box and the central defenders will
    often run away as if you aren't a threat. You will be man-marked but won't have
    to deal with three guys instead. Once you run back into the penalty box they
    will return to haunt you, yet by then you will try and shoot to score.
    
    Dribble is used to control the ball better and don't lose it quickly when the
    opponent slides in. When you are far away from the other player controlling
    the ball, switch to run to get near quickly. Don't give them an opportunity
    to shoot, remember the first tip I gave you and think how that can apply to
    others too.
    
    Passing is a bit risky. You may just want to try and far up the field with one
    player. When you are in the back and there are opponents approaching then boot
    it forward before losing the ball, but once you are in attack just try and go
    around the indiviuals and shoot.
