Ten-year-old Ivan is crazy about Paula, the most beautiful girl in his class. The only thing he loves more than Paula is football, and when a global kids-vs-pros charity match is organised to raise money for a natural disaster, he tries out to represent his native Spain against the best players on the planet.  

Impressing the roguish coach Torres with his mature attitude and team ethos, Ivan gets the call and flies to Mexico to train for the game of his life. However the volatile Torres becomes increasingly erratic as he struggles to get over his ex-wife and with the class bully and love rival Morrenilla also picked, Ivan must fight for Paula's affections.

This is a light and comedic family film which pitches a sweet story of blossoming young love against an event of epic proportions. The story is uplifting and unashamedly optimistic but some real magic is saved for the finale as the big match arrives. The filmmakers displaying an impressive technical proficiency to envisage the grand scale of the event, conjuring a stadium of thousands with seamless CGI as young Ivan takes the stage to realise his dream.
