Goal! Two-Books-In-One

Written by Robert Rigby

Goal! Two-Books-In-One Synopsis

Goal! A young Latino boy 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? Goal II! Santiago has made his mark in the UK Premier league as a magic midfielder with Newcastle United. European football now beckons and he finds himself playing alongside the stars of Real Madrid. But playing in the UEFA Champions League can bring new challenges, like fighting to keep his place in the squad, and trying to resist the temptations surrounding a successful footballer. Sometimes dreams can turn sour...
