I enjoyed this story very much. It was actually a realistic soccer story and it didn't have to deal with any other side stories. it maintained me entertained for the whole anime and the ending was very exciting, and it left you asking for more. I recommend this anime to the true soccer fans, who know the reality of soccer and that know how hard it is and how much you have to work to make it in the sport.
