This game is actually World Championship Soccer II, it seems it was incorrectly named after being dumped and was just referenced as another "sport game", hence the name.

Interestingly, it has the same internal header as the verified USA dump but CRC does not matches (and checksum in header is incorrect).
The language has not been changed and is still english by default, there is no sign it is actually an official Brazil release.

The Brazillian releases "Sport Games" is a 3 in 1 cart with the games: Super Volleyball, Super Real Basketball and World Championship Soccer II.

Thanks for the clarification, the ROM dump indeed includes those 3 games when you look at it with an hex editor, however the first one (World Championship Soccer II) is always automatically played and there is no game selection menu.

From your screenshots, it seems the game is labeled as being 24Mb (i.e 3MB ) but the ROM dump is actually only 2MB which is exactly World Championship Soccer II (1MB) + Super Real Basketball (512KB) + Super Volleyball (512KB).

Therefore, it appears to be a bad dump with the first MB (probably the game selection menu) missing.

Actually, for what it's worth, Super Volleyball is only 256KB, the end of the "Sport Games" ROM dump is filled with 0x00.

See my post on the forums.
The name is good (despite the dump isn't, I mark it as bad).

Name and dump are both correct now :)
