Mikke is despairing. Once again he is an average football player on Clausenengen’s boys’ team. The magic from Maradona’s captain’s armband, which Mikke found in Naples and which made him a fantastic football player for a while, is gone.
Clausenengen will only beat Nordlandet and Sondre Goma in the Norway Cup, if Mikke, Hansa and Shearer don’t find new items of clothing that Maradona wore when he played. And where better to look than in Maradona’s home town, Buenos Aires?
The magic is gone. The hunt continues. Game on! Maradonas mål is the second book in Stavrum’s football trilogy.
Football, feel-good and magic!
‘Arild Stavrum has written a wonderful book about friendship, football, scary villains, lovers and superstars! [...] In this book, author Arild Stavrum also shows his magical powers. Or to be more precise, magical storytelling powers. [...] Here you will find excitement, action and football magic that surpasses your wildest dreams.’
‘The narrative tempo is fast with short, clear chapters. [...] Stavrum writes a lot of humour and warmth into the story, in the uncertainty of the main character’s romantic relationship with Kari and his close relationship with his father. It is here that author Stavrum’s best qualities are revealed. [...] Stavrum subtly peppers the text with fascinating football history.’
