Everybody has a dream, and for Sh Kazamatsuri, that dream is simple: he wants to be the best soccer player he can possibly be. He's the spirited leader of the Josui Junior High team and everyone looks up to him. In turn, he tries to keep the team together at any cost

Fresh from their victory in Korea, the Tokyo Select Team enter the Japan Toresen--the national youth team tournament. Their first game is against the powerful Kant Select. And their leader is a figure from Sh 's past--Toshiki Sugama. Even if they make it past this rival, another team is waiting in the wings with a new batch of surprises.
