"Go For Goal" tells the true story of the Football World Cup, as related to Oscar, a young, rising Brazilian football star by his father, Lucas and his grandfather, Leonardo.
The history of the World Cup is told in a series of flashbacks, including...
The 1909 "Sir Thomas Lipton" World Cup competition, won by an English amateur team - West Auckland - and won again by the same team in 1911...
The 1950 World Cup Final played in Brazil featuring Brazil vs. Uruguay...
The 1966 World Cup featuring "Pickles", the dog famous for finding the stolen "Jules Rimet" trophy and...
"The World Cup Hall of Fame", featuring famous and infamous moments from many past Football World Cups and told as a song.
The show ends in the present day at the "Maracana" stadium in Brazil, where the importance of "facing life's challenges" is explored in the final song... "The World at your Feet"
"Go For Goal" is dynamic, very funny and historically accurate - yes, England really did win the first two Football "World Cups"!
This musical has gone down a storm in pre - publication performances - especially the songs - and is a brilliant way to enthuse your children about the true story of the Football World Cup.
