I was watching black starz when I saw this footbal movie start. I'm not a fan of sports movies, I always found them lame and predictable but Goal is a exceptional football movie about a mexican football player from LA who travels to england in the hopes of playing for NewCastle. For the first half hour of the movie I was waiting for the black star/co-stars to come on because obviously its "Starz in Black", but I kept on watching and I'd say that this maybe the best football movie I've watched since Bend it Like Beckam. Anna Friel is hotty white girl but thats besides the point. Goal gets a 9 out of 10. As good as a football movie can get.
