Plot & Details

Jackie Collins screenplay falters in this so-so melodrama about a soccer player and his road to fame and fortune. Rod Turner (Ian McShane) is a has-been soccer whiz who one day gets a second chance to reach for the brass ring. He joins a team owned by a playboy rock star (Paul Nicholas) and managed by Jake (Adam Faith), a vicious, mean-spirited devil. In spite of the manager and a suddenly complex personal life as he gets involved with the rock star's girlfriend (Suzanne Somers), Rod is determined to make this second chance work.
