Not Available Online
GOAL! III: TAKING ON THE WORLD! is the third part of the football film trilogy Goal! and is directed by legendary music video Director Andy Morahan. Taking place during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, it sees Mexican footballer Santiago Munez (Kuno Becker) pitted against his Real Madrid team-mates and England players Charlie Braithwaite (Leo Gregory) and Liam Adams (JJ Feild) in a mutual quest to lift sport's ultimate prize. Also starring are Nick Moran and Tamer Hassan. Santi is motivated to try and win the trophy for his late father and family back in Los Angeles and Madrid. Meanwhile, Charile and Liam just want to try and end the Three Lions' "40 years of pain". For all three charismatic footballers, the path to potential success is one fraught with temptations and torments - and all three have to deal with personal issues off the pitch that affects their roles on it. Gracing the screen with a splash of glamour are two beautiful WAG'S: Italian actress Sophia Tardelli and one of our heroes' ex-girlfriends, June (Anya Lahiri). Also following the tournament around Germany in their St George's Cross festooned camper van are the 'Geordie Boys', whom we first met back in Goal!. Providing the often hilarious fan's perspective of the matches are Gordon (Mike Elliott), Foghorn (Christopher Fairbank), Walter (Jack McBride) and Phil (Craig Heaney). The film includes incredible football action shot at the 2006 FIFA World Cup Finals in Germany which was shot by legendary Director Michael Apted.
