Synopsis:
Third part of the successfull series about a youngsters' soccer team:

The Wild Soccer Bunch football team, after legendary success, no longer exists. The players are now teenagers and all dedicated to other sports. Nonetheless, there is still somebody out there that believes in them. In fact, little Nerv runs away from an overprotective and “clean-maniac” mother to look for his heroes. The child gets to the football pitch, that is now in a very bad state, where an all girl team called Wild Beasts challenges a team put together by Leon, the leader of the ex-bunch. Captain of the girl team is Fabi, an ex “wild”. Leon has no intention whatsoever of accepting the challenge owing to the fact that he still feels guilty for what previously happened. His legendary team split up after he ran away during an important match. It will be down to Nerv to get things moving in the right direction again and get Nerv and team mates back on the football pitch for yet another exciting challenge.
