Sammy Striker and the Football Cup

Sammy Striker is NEVER found without a football at her feet, and one day at the park, she’s spotted by Melissa McDream – who coaches the Under 8s National Team! Sammy is a dribbler extraordinaire, headed straight for the top. But as the Football Cup comes closer, Sammy’s shots on goal go a bit…wonky.

Will Sammy work out that it’s what makes her DIFFERENT that will help them win the cup?
