A Lucky ShotThe Best Club 3

Magnus Ljunggren, illustrated by Mats Vänehem

The hightlight of the year is only a few days away – the Derby Cup! Last year both the boys and girls teams lost the finals to Ekeby. The boys were winning a bit into the first half of the game with 2-0 and yet they lost! This year they would take their revenge.

When the Best Club plays the first match of the tournament the Ekeby players stand watching and cheer on the opposition. The Best Club players are so upset they almost lose the match. Can they really do that? When Ekeby start their match a few of the Best Club players start to boo when Ekeby get the ball. The rivalry increases and in the end it gets out of hand… Who has done what? The guilty must own up and apologize to the Ekeby players or they will not go in to the Friends Arena with the national team for the training match against Spain. The guilty confess and everyone is talking about how they should pay for their bad behaviour. Finally it is decided that instead of punishing them, they should invite the Ekeby players to join them when they enter the arena for the international game.
