The next action-packed adventure in a series about one of the most popular sports for kids in Australia - soccer.

There's a new kid at Jasper's school. His name is Aamir and he can't speak English, but when Jasper remembers his grandad saying that you don't need language to play sport, he takes Aamir onto the soccer field to teach him a few tricks. Aamir already has a few of his own, and he's soon invited to join the Rovers. The trouble is, star Eastville Kings player Badger Mackenzie can't resist doing what he does best - badgering his opponent to put them off their game. This time his target is Aamir. Someone will be sent off the field with a red card - but who will it be? And will it affect the Rovers' wish of one day playing in the finals?
