You’re both the coach and a player managing your team in World Soccer Champs. This free football game app gives you a chance to lead your team to triumph in a fun and exciting ‘soccer’ match, league or cup. The free version includes many national and international clubs but not necessarily real players or club names.
The game is full of genuine football associations from around the world and heaps of local clubs. World Soccer Champs gives you the pleasure of playing with swipe-controls on your device's screen to pass, dribble and shoot when in the attack or to tackle when defending. Similar games you can try are Dream League Soccer and FIFA Soccer.
Basic gameplay features
The matches in this game don't take too long, since you control your players during critical moments of play. Despite its simplistic graphics, you can expect an entertaining yet challenging experience from this innovative game engine.
In the free version of the app, you get most major soccer clubs, albeit with slightly altered names due to licensing restrictions. For instance, L’pool represents the team wearing red jerseys from Merseyside, England, and Madrid is a strong side sporting a white kit.
You can choose your starting 11 before starting a match. As in real football, you have seven players on the bench and can bring them on during the game by pausing the play and making a substitution. You can strategize based on player attributes such as Speed, Pass, Shoot, Tackle and Goalkeeping. You can also change your tactics and formation before or during a match.
You can tap on a player to pass the ball, or tap on any point on the pitch to run your player with the ball to that spot. When you have the chance to score, you’ll want to slide your finger towards any part of the goal. To win back the ball, you can just slide your finger on the screen towards the opposition players.
Play a match or tournament
You can buy in-app data packs to unlock naming licenses and play with real player names in their real-life clubs. You can also engage in the transfer market: buy players with high potential and cash in on the ones approaching the end of their careers.
