Publisher's Summary

Paul Faustino, South America's top sports writer, sits opposite the man they call El Gato - the Cat - the world's greatest goalkeeper. On the table between them stands the World Cup...

In the hours that follow, El Gato tells his incredible story - how he, a poor logger's son, learns to become a World Cup-winning goalkeeper so good he is almost unbeatable. And the most remarkable part of this story is the man who teaches him - the mysterious Keeper, who haunts a football pitch at the heart of the claustrophobic forest...

What the Critics Say

"This stirring adventure - a soccer story? a ghost story? - defies expectations... Both lyrical and gripping." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Gripping storyline"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was appealing to all of the family. Made a long journey pass pleasantly.

    His meeting with Paul Faustino in which he recounts the game and penalties.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How I became the greatest keeper in the world.

    "A page turner I wasn't expecting to enjoy! Highly recommend"

    Once I realised this was about football I thought I'd hate it but had to read it as part of our book challenge. But I loved it!! Well read and engaging story - I couldn't put it down.

    Read it!
