After another failure that puts their classification at the CONCACAN Tournament at risk, the Mexicanine Team changes its coach. The chosen to take the helm of the team is the veteran Bernardo "Profe" Lapata, one of the star players who many years ago almost led to the triumph of the National Team in its best tournament in history, along with two great teammates: Cañón Colmillo and Lobo Perreda.

Lapata decides to summon new blood to the National Team and thus he meets by accident with Polo and Juancho, two great amateurs strikers, bound by something more than football/soccer. The great talent of Polo and Juancho will lead the National Team to the Grand Final of the Canine Cup, but both will have to overcome their great egos and personalism to learn to play as a team and thus achieve the much desired Cup.


The film's teaser was released on 24 July 2014.[5]


The original idea comes from Carlos Pimentel who began working with Arnaiz in the story since July 2009.[citation needed]
