Zico Soccer (ジーコ サッカー?, "Zico Soccer")[3] from Electronic Arts is a Super Famicom football management game that allows players to become the head coach of an international football team; it was named after the modern-day soccer legend Zico (as known as the White Pelé). There is an exhibition mode, training mode, and two different kinds of cup (tournament) modes.[4]

The game starts with a coin toss and the winner chooses to have possession of the football or to choose what side of the field to defend. No club play is possible with national leagues, there are only international teams. However, England is excluded along with most other FIFA member nations. Instead of directly controlling the players, the manager/player must choose who must pass the ball to which player, where to shoot the football, where to move the players on the board, and how they should shoot the football. The game is mostly in the Japanese language although some words are in the English language.
