One day, Lam meets a young man named Shun/Little Sun (Dicky Cheung) and is impressed by his kung-fu and kicking skills. Shun or little shun has this disease which he has a bad really bad memory and will not remember people except everything relating to soccer for example, soccer players, soccer teams and soccer matches.Lam immediately comes up with an idea to form a Kung-Fu soccer team and apply martial arts skill to the game of soccer. When Lam Chung Fu created the soccer team, they lost their first game with 16-2. However they were trained really hard by Lam Chung Fu and won most of their games. During these times Shun were in help by a traditional Chinese doctor which had new medications that can help him. However this new medication has a huge risk. The risk is that, Shun could die. Shun's sister, a person with many kung fu skills, gave Shun the choice with Shun wanting to do the new medication. Shun however survived and is back to a normal person with him being the captain of the team. The story continues with their team winning and having many sponsors. Near the end, Lam Chung Fu's brother, Lam Chung Pau an evil person wants their team to lose, so Pau created another Kung Fu soccer team to compete against them. Pau has many evil workers to work for him and later killed 2 people from Fu's soccer team. The two players were a goal keeper who tried to save his team mates while they were trapped in a building by Pau and a defence player who tried to save another player from his team by donating his kidney because of pau's player who kicked Fu's player really hard during a soccer match. The defence player was unlucky and died after the operation while the player who he tried to save, survived. The players all succeed at last and were world known because of Lam Chung Fu's hard work.
