| Not as bad as all that
As an American who appreciates soccer, I got a kick (no pun intended) out of this movie. It is the real Pele (not a look alike) and he does a good job in the movie. The plot is predictable, as most of the sports movies in the mid 80's were (Youngblood, All The Right Moves, Air Up There) but in a world with not enough Soccer movies (at least in this country) this one was well appreciated. Jim Youngs comes off as somewhat believable in his role as the hero, a young man from US looking to join up with a South American soccer team. I have not seen it in a while, but I remember enjoying this movie thoroughly. If you are a fan of football/soccer, I recommend it.
