Based on a true story, this film tells the tale of the 1950 US soccer team who, against all odds, beat England 1 - 0 in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Although no US team has ever won a World Cup title, this story is about the family traditions and passions which shaped the lives of the players who made up this team of underdogs.

Attila did not kill his brother Bleda in a duel, a day after his supposed coronation as King of the Huns, as depicted in the film. Nor did Attila become king after his brother's death.

Ive read some of the comments above, almost everything is said, but being a Hungarian - one of the few nations who keep Atilla in high respect - a nation descendant of the Huns, this period of our history always interested me. First the spelling. I dont have a problem with Attila, thats how the world uses it, he was Atilla or Etele among the Hungarians, Etli for Germans...does not matter, it derives from the Turk-Hungarian word ata-father. What is the main problem in this film is the portrayal of the Huns. Just to point out the most annoying and untrue stuff. Huns attacking on foot ? Huns charging mindlessly with swords ? Cmon guys, we researched their exact warfare, strategy and tactics by now, and this is NOT that
