I saw your blog about your World Cup on FIFA International soccer for the Megadrive. Like you I have been doing AI tournaments since I was a kid. I currently have a FIFA 97 (PS1) World Club Championship and World Cup almost at the end of qualifying. I have also completed both tournaments on FIFA 96.
I have done loads of world cups on International Soccer. I loved your qualifying format. I used to mix OFC with AFC and also Conmebol and Concacaf into the same competitions.
If you send me your email I will send you all the results from my FIFA 96 season😎
