In the spring of 1950, the US was extended an invitation the compete in the World Cup in Brazil. Faced with budgetary restrictions and no actual team, they set out to recruit players from the soccer hotbed of Missouri, where they found a group of young friends with no professional or international playing experience, only a love of the game.

A fun movie based on a true event: in 1950, in the early days of soccer’s world cup phenomenon – and the last time Brazil was the host – a little known ragtag group of Americans, assembled only 2 weeks before the tournament, shocked the world when they upset reigning powerhouse England. Could it happen again?!!

A nice film about a sports team brought together for the USA to have an appearance in the World Cup in 1950. It was an interesting choice to have Stewart partly narrate the story since he is from Great Britan and this story is about the match between the US and England.
