Piccadilly Press ISBN 9781848121621

Harry and his friends are excited to be going to a tournament at Wembley with lots of top players taking part. Harry can't believe it when his favourite player is sent off the field and later other players also start to behave in very unusual ways. Harry notices strange things happen when the owner of one of the teams, Anton Antovich, is around. Could Antovich be responsible? Harry has to use all his Super Soccer Boy powers to reveal Antovich's plan. This is a humorous and gripping story. It is very well written and brilliantly illustrated by the author. If you enjoy it as much as I did, look out for the other books in the series.
