Goal: The Movie - DVD
Since he was a child, Santiago Munez (handsome newcomer Kuno Becker ‘Imagining Argentina’) has had few possessions, little money but one big dream: to become an international football player. An immigrant to the U.S. from Mexico, Santiago has been working menial jobs while playing football every chance he gets. One day at a local match, he’s spotted by a British talent scout (Stephen Dillane ‘The Hours’) who recognises something extraordinary in Santiago, the kind of talent English Premier League Club, Newcastle United, is hungry for. It’s the break aspiring player’s dream of - yet few ever realise. Soon thrust into a foreign land where football is a religion and players are worshipped by millions - including many adoring female fans - Santiago must prove he has what it takes on and off the field to play with and against the best in the world. Made with the co-operation of FIFA and featuring some of the beautiful game’s most famous players this is the incredible story of a gifted athlete who must manoeuvre his way through fame, fortune, off-field temptations, triumphs and defeats, to reach his ultimate ‘Goal’.
