Represent England without going to South Africa

Sadly, we can’t all be good enough to travel with Fabio Capello and his 23-man squad to South Africa this summer. While we may dream about playing in front of millions of fans across the globe, for the vast majority of park players this it isn’t going to happen.

But before you get too depressed, there is a way you (and your friends) can represent your nation at one of the biggest football events on the planet – that’s right, it’s The Football Superstars World Cup!

Taking competitive football gaming to the next level, Football Superstars is giving you the chance to represent England (or the nation of your choice) at the third FS World Cup. The previous two competitions were won by Romania and Russia, and it’s about time the cup came back to the true home of football.

Whether you're a rampaging winger like Theo Walcott, a rock in defence like Rio Ferdinand or a fox in the box (and out of it) like Wayne Rooney, there could be a place for you on the team. You might even fancy yourself as a manager and decide who plays and who doesn’t. Either way, you are going to have to earn the right to wear the colours (or the lovely navy blue suit!)

To participate all you need is a PC, an internet connection and some dedication. Football Superstars is free to play and can be downloaded right away!
