Now much to the dismay of her father he let her go as he could see how upset she was by not getting to play alongside Keira Knightley when there was a professional scout in the audience.

We see her enter after halftime when they were down a goal, they tie it up and Jes is given a free kick to win after being inexplicably tackled. Naturally she is finally able to "Bend it like Beckham" as it were and they obtain the victory.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is yes, I see no reason why Buff couldn't play tonight.

Good movie.
