After a thrilling match won by the Haarlem Football Club HFC, a youthful supporter listens to the tall stories told by older members of the club in the local café. That night, because of his excitement, the boy has a nightmare in which he alone has to defend the HFC goal, even against a gigantic football.
He is so successful that his club wins the match. However, the plucky young goalkeeper is then chased by a gang of angry farmers with pitchforks. They get hold of him, but then the boy is shaken awake by his father.
