9780552560405: Goal: Two-books-in-one

"Goal!" is a terrific story of a young Latino boy who is spotted by an ex-scout, playing in a park in Los Angeles, and wins himself a trial at one of England's Premier League clubs - Newcastle United. Struggling to cope with the gritty Northern weather, the rivalries and jealousies from other players and dodgy scouts, he has just this one shot at fulfilling his dream. He has the skill, but does he have the pace and stamina necessary for success? A riveting tale of one underdog, the first of three fantastic football movies coming over 2005-2007. In "Goal 2", Santiago has made his mark in the UK Premier league as a magic midfielder with Newcastle United. But European football now beckons and he finds himself playing alongside stars such as Beckham, Raul and Zidane for Real Madrid.But playing in the UEFA Champions League can bring new pressures - new challenges such as: fighting to keep his place in the squad, trying to resist the temptations surrounding a successful footballer, and aiming to maintain his relationship with his girlfriend back home. Sometimes dreams can turn sour.
