The Liverpool Goalie is a warm comedy, in which both girls and boys play football, worship their idols, and are frustrated by complicated friendships, young love, anxious mothers and overambitious football coaches.

There's just something special about Scandinavian children's films. This one has the perfect combination of funny situations, creative fantasy scenes and believable characters. The problems of growing up are dealt with in a comic but nevertheless serious and encouraging way. AND it's got football cards in it. ;)
