Wonder Goal

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Andersen Press

Being the new boy on the football team is no fun, especially for one little boy who trips over the shoelaces his team-mates have tied together. But when he scores a screamer of a goal, he hopes they will accept him.

Every night the boy dreams of becoming a famous footballer, just like his Dad dreamed. But even when he reaches the national team, he is still the new boy and still gets teased. This time though, his wonder goal is the first goal of the world cup final and his Dad is there to see him. Dreams can come true.

Ambition, hope, skill and determination feature in this simple story of one boy's journey to the top in his favourite sport.
