Goal in a nutshell

This movie sees Santiago Munez (Kuno Becker)  an illegal alien living in Los Angeles develop a real love and talent for football, despite his hardships. In fact, his talents are good enough to gain the attention of a scout, who gives him the opportunity to go to England and try out for Newcastle United  which he does, knowing that if he doesn't make it he will not be able to go back to the US.

Goal is a heart-warming story of one man's struggle to better his lot. Despite the fact that in real life it would be impossible to play in an EU country without being a professional player already, Munez heads to Newcastle in spite of the protestations of his father. The movie portrays a dream that millions of young lads have probably had, and was followed up with several sequels.
