I'd heard of this film from a couple of places, but an Asian friend finally convinced me to watch it.

A newspaper article then shows Hung being stripped of his title of soccer chairman and sent to jail for five years, while Team Evil players are permanently banned from playing soccer professionally. Sing explains his desires to Fung who offers his services to coach Sing in soccer. Soccer is an extremely violent, unsophisticated sport, governed by corrupt, lawless organizations, wher victory goes to the team with the most firepower, up to and including nuclear-powered football cleats.

Sing proceeds to use the soccer ball as a weapon. Very Good: An item that is used but still in very good condition. For example, in the film a group of bar thugs beat up Sing and Iron Head after listening to their -style tribute to. The plot is well done also. However, this backfires and when Mui reveals her feelings to him, he tells her he only wants to be her friend. A good clean transfer too.

Minimal wear on the exterior of item. Mui and Sing combine their martial skills and rocket the ball downfield.
