How far would you go to live your dream?
In GOAL 2: LIVING THE DREAM, the second part of the successful football trilogy, the story moves from Newcastle to Madrid, with incredible football action from Beckham, who has just signed up to play with LA Galaxy. Real Madrid beckons for the Toon Army's favourite player, Santiago Munez (Kuno Becker). Whilst his fiancee, Roz (played by Anna Friel) plans their wedding in Newcastle, he realises every footballer's dream and gets to wear the legendary white shirt alongside some of the biggest names from the world of football including David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane and Raul, Guti and Iker Castillas.
Mirroring the paths of many footballing legends before him, Santiago, in the second part of the trilogy, basks in the glory, the acclaim and the money, only for this illusion of happiness to be shattered and his life destroyed. As the fame hungry, avaricious and beautiful Jordana seduces our aspiring Galactico, his past is closing in to catastrophic results. Set against the backdrop of Real Madrid, Santiago discovers the ugly face of success and begins to lose his career, his friends and most importantly Roz.
Talking about his involvement in the Goal movies Beckham says:
"It's an exciting project and it's about football so the acting comes naturally on the field for me. It's still nerve wracking being part of a big film like this but to be able to do something like this in a football movie is special. In football I've achieved so much and I've lived every dream that I've ever dreamt as a youngster. On the field I've achieved nearly everything any footballer could. Off the pitch I have an amazing family and life couldn't get better. It's nice to be involved as I'm sure these films will go down in history."
