  1. INTRODUCTION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  Hello again Soccerfans, after finished my Fifa'99 & ISS Pro'98 FAQs, i now
  worked with one of the promising soccer game that called Libero Grande.
  I'm Indonesian Chinese, so i don't know how to read Japanese, but i tried
  my best to work out with Libero Grande. Unlike the other soccer game that
  you can control all of you players, Libero Grande only allow you to control
  one player that becoming a part of the team. Of course the player that
  you control is the key player (or the captain) of the team that you're handle.
  Even you only control one player you can control the team using some button.
  I really enjoy this game. It offered something that really new & inovative.
