GERMANY, June 2006: Mexican football star Santiago Munez (Kuno Becker) is 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: the FIFA World Cup.

Santi is motivated to try and win the trophy for his late father and family back in Los Angeles and Madrid. Charile and Liam just want to try and end the Three Lions’ “forty 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.

Triumph and tragedy sit side by side in equal measure on this journey as the players compete on the field of dreams to achieve the ultimate dream – to score the winning goal in the World Cup final and lift the cup in victory to the delight of a whole nation of fans.

Co-starring Nick Moran (Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels) and Tamar Hassan (City Rats) and introducing stunners Anya Lahiri and Kasia Smutniak, Goal III: Taking On The World is the third and final instalment of the Goal franchise.

It’s released to buy on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday, June 15, through Metrodome (cert. 12).
