Peter Shilton's Handball Maradona

Hello. Do you know me? Whoops, sorry, wrong sportsman. The infamous Dingo Primadonna strikes again. In this - yet another BB re-release, you get to be him-of-the-holy-hands Peter Shilton. But wait. Before you get all over excited, there's more. You get to save five penalty shoots taken at you by assorted players, some of whom have some pretty astounding tactics. I didn't know for example you could curve a ball backwards through 270 degrees. The Diego disease perhaps? Another famous person tie-in to disappoint the unwary millions.

Overall Summary

Tedious football game that badly tries to cash in on Diego Madonna's publicity, miss at all costs.
