YOUR TEAM ACCORDING TO YOUR NEEDS.

AGR-AGGRESSION......DEFINES WETHER PLAYER WILL ATTACK OPPONENT IN HIS
                    AREA.AGGRESSIVE PLAYERS GO OFF AND FIGHT THEIR OPPONENTS
                    RATHER THAN ACTUALLY PLAYING THE GAME.

ATT-ATTACK..........THIS DETERMINES HOW SUCCESSFUL YOU ARE WHEN TRYING TO TAKE
                    THE BALL FROM AN OPPONENT.

DEF-DEFENSE.........THE STRONGER THIS IS,THE HARDER IT IS FOR ANYONE TO TAKE
                    THE BALL FROM YOU.

SPD-SPEED...........DETERMINES YOUR SPEED,SLIDE AND JUMPING DISTANCE.

THR-THROWING........PLAYERS WHO CAN THROW FURTHER ARE A GREAT ASSET.

POW-POWER...........A PLAYER WITH MORE POWER TACKLES HARDER AND INJURES HIS
                    OPPONENT SEVERELY.

                    TIME,AND HOW FAR THE PLAYER CAN LOOK AROUND HIM,A SMART
                    SQUAD HAS QUICKER REACTIONS AND MOVES INTO INTELLIGENT
                    ATTACKING POSITIONS MORE FREQUENTLY.

THE BALL,PRESS THE FIRE BUTTON. A SHORT PRESS RELEASES IT AT WAIST HEIGHT, A
LONGER PRESS MEANS THE BALL IS THROWN UP HIGH IN THE AIR.

LEFT OR RIGHT CAUSES HIM TO DIVE FOR THE BALL.HOWEVER,HE CAN`T TRAVEL OUTSIDE
HIS OWN GOAL AREA-ABOUT A SCREENS DISTANCE FROM GOAL.

SUCCESSFUL TACKLES DEPEND ON THE RELATIVE ATTACK/DEFENSE ATTRIBUTES OF THE TWO
PLAYERS INVOLVED,IF YOU WIN THE TACKLE,YOUR OOPONENT LOSES ENERGY,AND VICE
VERSA.

ANY TIME-EVEN OFF THE BALL.PLAYERS ARE MOST VULNERABLE WHEN JUMPING AND FACING
AWAY FROM YOU.
