No Victory in Semi Final - S1-E21

Plot hole: The whole team went into the match, and the tournament, without knowing its rules. They all are totally surprised by the fact that the top 2 teams qualify from each group. Of course, that's quite impossible, especially since there are veterans in the team, Tsubasa is a football fanatic, Misaki is a clever student of the game, and you just don't walk into a tournament you have prepared for and looked forward to for ages without knowing such a basic fact.

Kick-Off for the Future - S1-E3

Plot hole: Much of the lines at the beginning of the episode (Roberto's identity, Nankatsu being an 'easier' school compared to the private institute) repeat what was already established in the previous episode, as if it never happened.

The New Soccer Star - S1-E1

Plot hole: Once Wakabayashi wins his challenge against the Nankatsu senior students, he instantly is back at his huge mansion to collect Tsubasa's message. Tsubasa was standing just a few meters away watching The Challenge as it happened, and Genzo had no reason to run away (if anything he was supposed to supervise the team during training), nor he's shown doing that. He's just gone, no explanation. (00:15:20)

A Perfect Duo - S1-E8

Plot hole: For no reason and without the fact being addressed at all, 2 defenders take the kick off for the second extra time (and naturally lose it instantly, while Tsubasa and Misaki would never have). (00:18:00)

A Perfect Duo - S1-E8

Audio problem: When Urabe gets in the field to ask to be a substitute, western dubs (verified in the Italian and spanish dubs) have Ryo (or "Bruce") ask him who he is. Ryo knows perfectly well who Urabe is, and they played a friendly match just a couple episodes before too. (00:06:45)

Where Is the Rival? - S1-E5

Trivia: When Sanae starts waving the flag she made for Tsubasa, in the background you can see a couple of grossly disproportional characters most likely drawn as a joke by some animator, and even the Road Runner. (00:14:55)
