"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.

Scene One:

The action begins in the present day, close to Rio de Janeiro's Maracana stadium. A young Brazilian lad called Oscar is showing off his ball skills to his family as they watch the crowd - including smartly dressed footballers and "WAGs" - arriving for the big game, while grandfather reminisces about football in the good old days. We now "flashback" to...

Scene Two:

The 1950 World Cup Final played between Brazil and Uruguay where Brazil, the red-hot favourites are beaten by the underdogs, mainly due to nobody in the team realising that just occasionally, defending is just as important as attacking. "The World at your Feet" makes its first appearance amidst utter Brazilian desolation.

Scene Three:

Back to the present day outside the Maracana stadium where Oscar and family meet Ratsy, Patsy and Papa, "Rapping" Paparazzi extraordinaire, who snap anything that moves, including Shannice, a lost WAG. Conversation turns to World Cup history and the very first "World Cup". We now "flashback" to...

Scene Four:

West Auckland F.C. 1909, where the club secretary, Mr Barron is talking on the phone. His football club has been chosen to represent England in the first ever "World Cup". There follows the players' - all miners - excruciatingly funny attempts to sell all their household possessions to raise the money to travel to Italy to play in and win (which they did) the "World Cup". We now move back to the present day, outside the Maracana stadium where...

Scene Five:

Oscar, friends and family are told how, two years later, West Auckland actually won the "World Cup" again and were allowed to keep the trophy which was unfortunately stolen. This leads conveniently to a London police station in 1966 where...

Scene Six:

Mr Corbett and his dog "Pickles" have just arrived to present the astonished policemen with the recently stolen World Cup "Jules Rimet" trophy, found by "Pickles" in a garden hedge. Back to the present day Maracana where...

Scene Seven:

Conversation turns to the fact that despite "Pickles'" heroics, the recovered cup travelled back to Brazil, only to be stolen yet again! We move to the ice cream stall outside the Maracana stadium where...

Scene Eight:

Dancers and drummers in colourful clothes gather to dance an impromptu "Samba" before the main event. Still outside the Maracana...

Scene Nine:

Oscar, friends and family meet an old man, the commentator from the 1950 World Cup final, who gives them tickets for the World Cup final. They all meet some more footballers, this time women preparing for the Women's World Cup. The "Rapping" Paparazzi return, and "Pele" joins them for a final photo call. The show ends with the entire cast singing the show - stopping... "The World at your Feet".

5 Star Rating

Go For Goal

"I thoroughly enjoyed doing this play for my end of year 6 play. I didn't have a speaking role but I was one of the directors. Which was fun considering that I hate football because I am a typical girly girl. However it has made me to like football a little."
Lexie Sanders, Curledge Street , Paignton
