1. INTODUCTION

===============================================================================

So, you are bored with playing the FIFA 2002, and want some change. Well, this 
guide should help you change some things in the game. It is meant to explain 
to you how to create or edit the players/teams/competitions in this game.

Through this, you can create a new player (which looks just like you), or 
change an existing player (maybe you want Beckham to have his new hairstyle). 
Then you can create a new team (with your family and friends as the players) 
and you can also create a new Cup/League (the first one you would like to 
create should be the World Cup itself).

I hope I can help you do all this. Excuse any grammatical/spelling mistakes, 
as English is not my first language. But I am sure you won't have much 
problems in understanding what I am saying. OK, let's start then.

===============================================================================

2. THE CREATION CENTRE

===============================================================================

The Creation Centre is where all the creation or editing will be done.

2.1 Accessing the Creation Centre
=================================

After the cool intro movie, press any key. Now choose the second option, Game 
Modes. Now choose the sixth option, Creation Centre and behold, you are there.

2.1 The Options available
