I have every World Cup Higlights DVD and this is by far the best. It is comprehensive, provides highlights for every game and the fact that it is in HD makes it all the fun to watch. I think it is watching it on HD that really makes this DVD so enjoyable.
Only drawback is that it will not play on PS3s sold in US/CANADA. It will play on any Blu Ray Player sold in US/Canada but not on PS3s since SONY retricts region free DVDs on PS3s.

1.0 out of 5 starswhy not make a bluray region A/1?????June 3 2011
By maza - Published on Amazon.com
I don't understand why this bluray wasn't made compatible for us in the US. The year is 2010! i thought for sure this year i could start adding blurays to my vhs/dvd collection of soccer goals videos, but i guess i'll have to wait till 2014 for a bluray that i can watch without buying a universal bluray player (if they exist) I'm sure the footage in this bluray is worth it, but it just sucks that it's only for region B or 2 :-(

5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent compilation and great productionDec 2 2010
By Alberto Pena - Published on Amazon.com
Excellent compilation of best plays, all the goals, best saves etc and the final in full. Several angles of most plays and goals, great quality, stunning images. As it states in the description this is zone 2 so it didn't play on U.S. zone 1 PS3 (don't know about Blu-Ray players) but I could play it smoothly on my PC connected to my TV. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 starsGood product... works on region 1 USA players tooAug. 5 2014
By Boss - Published on Amazon.com
The version that I received worked fine in my Region 1 (USA) blu-ray players. I could not find any marking on the cover to signify a specific region. I am assuming that this is an region free product.
The image quality is decent for 1080 widescreen. I do not expect it to be really clear do to the nature of the product as a compilation of various footage.
Disc one is divided into the various 8 groups and knockout round highlights. Disc two is the final.
