Goofs

When Santiago flies to Japan for the deal to join Real Madrid it is said that the deal needs to be done right away because the Transfer Window closes the next day. The Window closes on the last day of August about the same time The Spanish La Liga begin their season, so Real Madrid would not be in Japan on the day the Window closed. Historically, Real have played in Japan in July. See more »

Expectation levels too high!
13 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I couldn't wait for this to hit the big screen but to my disappointment, the film wasn't half as good as i had expected. After seeing the first i didn't know when the super subs dream was going to end, but at Real Madrid with superstars surrounding him, i thought i was in for a treat. But to my mistake, the storyline steers of course of the footballing world bringing in a twist of family life which was almost suddenly killed of by the stress of which football brings. Every little boy's dream is to play football at a professional level but this film gives us an inside view as to what goes on off the pitch and in my opinion doesn't have enough twists in the story. As i'm a football fanatic i loved the matches they played and the 3-2 comeback in the Champions League final was amazing but so predictable. Overall i feel the film was a failure but is still worth watching so that there is some hope that GOAL III can impress and revive the disappointment of GOAL II. Daniel Bryson
