9780152059217: GOAL: Glory Days

You saw him on the screen in the hit movies GOAL: The Dream Begins and GOAL II: Living the Dream. Now the saga of young professional soccer player Santiago Muñez continues in this final installment of the GOAL trilogy.

With a fresh start and a warm welcome from his old fans in Newcastle, Santi returns to England and to the team where his career began. Soon he’s back at the top of his game, and when he is selected for a 2010 World Cup squad, it seems as if his dream of playing in the World Cup finals is within reach.

But when Santi is injured during an international warm-up game, he worries that this could be the end of it all. With no time to waste, the pressure is on for him to get back on the field. Will his injury keep him from achieving his ultimate goal? Or will he recover in time to play in the greatest competition of his life?

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up The follow-up to Goal!: The Dream Begins (2006) and Goal! II: Living the Dream (2007, both Houghton) is the story of Santiago Mu&ntildeez's lifelong plan to become a world-famous soccer player. This installment continues up until the World Cup 2010. In fact, this book actually covers the story of two lives: Santiago and his stepbrother Enrique, who is now living in England with Santiago, his wife Roz, and their new daughter, and plays on the Newcastle Soccer Under-16 team. Rigby does an admirable job of catching readers up with the plotline, even though fans of the earlier two books will begin from page one with a caring fondness and hope that Santiago succeeds in his dream. Descriptions of the play-by-play are excellent and are interspersed with heart-wrenching moments of failure and disappointment. Rigby occasionally drops in the names of well-known soccer stars to keep the saga current. Teenage Enrique has his own problems with fitting in and with keeping the bullying he endures hidden from his family. Readers can identify and sympathize with his dilemma and the difficult decisions he must make. Purchase this book where the film or the first two books have been popular.
