Tecmo World Cup '90 is a football (soccer) arcade game released in 1989 by Tecmo. An unofficial bootleg of the game named Euro League featuring European club teams was also released. An unfaithful home version was developed by SIMS for the Sega Mega Drive renamed simply Tecmo World Cup (in Japan, the game was called Tecmo World Cup '92), and ported to the Sega Master System as Tecmo World Cup '93.


The player can select one from eight available national teams in Tecmo World Cup '90. Japan were included despite them failing to qualify for the World Cup in 1990. The game was an unofficial release, giving them the chance to include the team to appease Japanese players.

The following teams were selectable.

A later European revision of the game was released which included  France (also non-qualifiers) in place of the USA and  Spain in place of Japan.

The Genesis version (and Master System's) features 24 national teams:

Euro League features 8 club teams:

Note that in this bootleg the official club names and logos are not used.
