Go for the goal!
Josh and his talented travel league soccer teammates are having trouble coming together as a successful team. All the players on Josh's elite travel league soccer team, the United, are talented, but they each seem to be playing for themselves. As a result, they can't win a single game. Tired of always losing, Josh begins to wonder if he made a mistake by leaving his old team. But just when Josh is about to give up on his new team, he makes a discovery: the 1999 United States Women's World Cup team faced similar difficulties the year they won it all. Using team-building exercises was their solution, and Josh convinces his coach to try the same approach. Will they be able to turn the United into a real team? Author Fred Bowen continues his Sports Story series with play-by-play action that's sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats! An afterword provides the real story of the 1999 United States Women's World Cup team.
