Trivia

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 »

Goofs

In Real Madrid's locker room, before the final match for the champions league title starts, you can see the LFP logo (Spanish football federation) on the sleeves of Real Madrid's t-shirts. It's totally inappropriate for a European tournament, for it is used only in domestic leagues and cups. Though both halves of the game are played with the right equipment, the Champions League won.

Announcer: What a humiliation. 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.

Big step back
21 March 2007 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

I loved the first Goal!. I found it to be the best football movie since Victory,and was glad to know that it would be followed by 2 sequels that will take our Mexican Pele to Real Madrid to play Champion's league final and then to the world cup. Sorry to say,or write,and sorry for myself,this one is a step back,a big one.The only part that isn't worse in this one is Alessandro Nivola,the guy knows what he is doing and does it good.For everything else...hmmm.. First-the script is rather clumsy,making our "hero" deal with such problems as meeting his mother that left him when he was a kid,dealing with a jealous girlfriend,an injury,loss of a friend and an agent....and in a mix of all this he does actually play for Real Madrid and meets Becks,Raul,Roberto Carlos....almost like that isn't the most important thing here and the reason why me and lot of other people want to see this in a first place. The chosen director wasn't the happiest choice because the guy has serious problems with pacing and working with actors like he has already showed in his debut,the 2005 remake of Hause of Wax.I saw that a third Goal! will be directed by Michael Apted and that is a good news,at least I hope so. Well it's not all bad,after all there are so few football movies these days(unlike boxing or American football)that I cherish even a flawed one like this and will definitely check out the third Goal! once it's out.
