Whistle!, Vol. 17

Daisuke Higuchi

Everybody has a dream, and for Shô Kazamatsuri, that dream is simple: he wants to be the best soccer player he can possibly be. He's the spirited leader of the Josui Junior High team and everyone looks up to him. In turn, he tries to keep the team together at any cost!

The members of the Tokyo Select Team must find out what they are made of as they prepare to take on the Seoul Select Team. Tatsuya is feeling depressed at seeing how much Shô has improved in recent months, while he himself has not. And when Katsurô goes down with a knee injury, Kentarô is thrust into the role of starting goalkeeper. Will the team find the courage to meet the challenge ahead?
