Group - Shows the world cup table, two qualify and there is two points
for a win and one for a draw. If it is tied at the end goal difference 
will be used, your team will qualify if there is an absolute tie. The 
top team qualifies as a number one seed and second place as a number two

Stats - Shows you various stats, including morale, and the tables for
the triangular cup.

Squad - You must pick a squad of 20 players (2 keepers, 7 defenders,
6 midfielders and 5 forwards>. Click on GK, Def, Mid or For, for a list 
of players. There are two lists for each position except Goalkeepers and
Welsh forwards, click on more for second list. Click on the player

following order Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland.

When the days business has been completed or to play a game click on
next day.

Picking the best team - The results are worked out by a combination of 
caps, skill and age. The average player has form seven (Form fluctuates
for most players each month). If a player has less than 10 caps he loses
the team some strength, an uncapped player exaggerates the effect. 
Players with over 40 caps increases the teams strength. Old players
weaken the team also. It is a good idea to give inexperienced players
caps in friendlies and easy games. Some senior players may retire before
the world cup so make sure there is adequate cover.

Injured players have zero form, players get injured at the beginning
of the month and after withdrawals.

On the pick team page pick a tactics and then 11 of the squad, if a

will be requested to save the game, do this and load it up on the
