     3. Game Types
      A. Friendly
           You choose the two teams, rules and time length. A one-time deal.
      B. Tournament
           A round-robin tourny with 5 groups. Games can be saved
           You can play as 8 teams.       
      C. League
           Same as Tourny except no Groups.
      D. Playoff
           Go straight for the World Cup!! 16 teams compete for the gold. You can
           have 8!
     4. Tips and Hints
       * Farther and higher shots from the goal score more!
       * If you control your goalie and oppo. has a corner, take goalie
          out and tap up the kick! It works!
       * To clear the ball fast, chest pass it to a buddy and volley it.
       * When going down, kicking for goal is different. Pressing down shoots
          it high, pressing left shoots it high and left, pressing right shoots
          it low and right, pressing up shoots it low.
       * Take your winger into the corner and have him chip in front of the goal,
          the, power-head it!!
       * To do the super-dribble, tap (B) when running, but don't hold it! This is
          a sure-fire way to lose defenders. You go faster and it is harder to steal.
       * Watch the penalties!
       * If a player is injured, replacing him doesn't fix the problem! You'll have
          to wait out the half.
