    The best football (soccer) movie ever made. Although the story is pretty cliche but the visuals are actually quite good. I guess it's only really enjoyable for football fans.

    A slickly mounted slice of can-do nonsense.

    The appealing young man's tribulations are predictable, his triumph inevitable; while he gets respect, we get another Rocky-style dose of emotional uplift, cloaked in the usual game-day clich├ęs.

    How much viewers care about what happens in Goal! is directly proportionate to how much they care about soccer, because decent execution aside, there's an underdog fantasy movie just like this one for every sport.
