Rebound plays Riva!

In the 1970 World Cup in Mexico, Luigi Riva scores an extra time against West Germany and advances to the final. In the final, Brazil will beat Italy, but the legend has already been born!
Years, decades later, the journey of the same ball continues to spin and ends in a strange twist in the chest pocket of the Italian Monsier Priha for four men dressed in darkness.
Rebounds take on the task and the crowd encounters both internal and external threats along the way.
Eventually, the ball is handed over to Atik Ismail(One of the most legendary football player ever from Finland), creating Ismail's hundredth goal in HJK's shirt.
The journey by no means ends there, but perhaps it is just beginning?
The story is about love for a species that has always connected young, old, living and dead.
The soundtrack is title track from Rebound´s new album "Riva!"

Video musicale Rebound: Riva!
Alla Coppa del Mondo del 1970 in Messico, Luigi Riva segna nei tempi supplementari contro la Germania Ovest e avanza alla finale. Nella finale contro il Brasile, perde, ma è già nata una leggenda!
Anni, decenni dopo, la stessa palla continua il suo viaggio e in uno strano intreccio finisce dalla tasca della giacca dell'italiano Monsier Priha a quattro uomini in abiti scuri.
I Rebounds intraprendono la missione e la squadra affronta minacce interne ed esterne lungo la strada.
Infine, la palla viene consegnata ad Atik Ismail, che segna il suo centesimo gol con la maglia dell'HJK.
Il viaggio non finisce affatto lì ma forse è appena iniziato?
È una storia d'amore per uno sport che ha sempre unito i giovani, i vecchi, i vivi e i morti.
La musica è tratta dal nuovo album di Rebound 'Riva' di cui è the title track."
