Samuel L. Jackson,
The real Champions League Final Game was Arsenal vs. Barcelona with Barcelona winning 2-1. Real Madrid lost to Arsenal in the first knock-out round with a 1-0 overall score in both legs. See more »
In the Champions League final, when Munez is subbed in, he is clearly wearing a long sleeved jersey. Then there is a cut scene of him clapping, and he is wearing a short sleeve. Then the next cut, he is back in a long sleeve. The same goof happens when he misses a goal scoring opportunity. See more »
A lot of unhappiness around the Bernabeu tonight, a lot of it directed at Gavin Harris. Came out as a hero, he's being called a donkey tonight.

I found Goal 2 Living the Dream a wonderful sequel to Goal. A lot of people have bagged this film saying its too predictable. Hey its not an Oscar movie but hey do you want them all the time.
Goal 2 follows Santiago Munez through the next phase of his soccer career and all the same characters are back. I loved it.
The football scenes are awesome you really believe that the players are playing in front of huge crowds and the storyline is very engaging.
There is a lot of drama in this movie so its not all football scenes but this to me add to the worth of this film. I enjoyed every minute of it and got goose bumps as it really immerses you in the life of a multi million dollar footballer. I cant wait to see Goal 3
