2.0 out of 5 stars Same as FIFA Fever October 24, 2005
All of the footage is the same. I was so excited to see they brought out another FIFA title, but everything is the same, not only that, you can get it on over stock dot com for $15, and FIFA Fever is only $12, which has much more footage.

This is an excellent historical account of the formation of what the world calls football but Americans call soccer; truly the beautiful game. It contains rare historical footage from the turn of the 20th century to the present day. It provides an accurate account of the creation of association football, FIFA, and competitions from teams from the five continents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun gift for a World Cup Fan April 25, 2014
Verified Purchase
I do not follow footie myself, but bought this item as a little surprise gift for a friend who does. With the World Cup coming up, I think he will be pleased to have it to help him fill the time until the matches start. And, I suspect it will help any new to the sport viewers, such as myself learn a bit about the history and highlights of the sport.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful game February 11, 2014

This is a very historical DVD, there is not as much footage of games. We would have liked more coverage of games and less history but still an interesting watch and you will learn a lot about FIFA!
