Sega International Victory Goal, known as Worldwide Soccer: Sega International Victory Goal Edition in North America, Worldwide Soccer in Brazil and just International Victory Goal in Europe (the title screens do not match the cover art) is a football game for the Sega Saturn and a launch title for the system in North America and Europe in 1995.

International Victory Goal borrows its core engine and many assets from Victory Goal, the major difference being that the game features international teams, rather than just those in the Japanese J. League. These teams include Italy, Spain, Denmark, Netherlands, England, Argentina, France, USA, Germany, Romania, Belgium and Brazil.

This game was not released in Japan, presumably due to its similarities with the original Victory Goal. Instead, Japan received a different Sega International Victory Goal later in the year, which makes a number of more prominent changes.
