Goal! 2 by Robert Rigby

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: fighting to keep his place in the squad, trying to resist the temptations surrounding a successful footballer, aiming to maintain his relationship with his girlfriend back home. Sometimes dreams can turn sour . . .
