The game's name is based from the 1986 FIFA World Cup Finals in Mexico. However, as this game retains the teams from "Kick and Run", the host nation Mexico are absent from the game.


* All-Stars Team : On the title screen press and hold the start button, wait 8 seconds exactly and release. Do this 3 times and you'll hear a bip-like noise. Insert the coin and go to the team selection screen; put the cursor over Argentina and press and hold start, now choose Argentina. But instead of choosing Argentina you'll get the All-Stars Team.
