Enjoyed watching!
25 October 2018 | by sennayrtonSee all my reviews

A very good movie about one of the best World Cup tournament with one of the best national team that ever existed. This is about football, not soccer. The governing body of the sport is FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) not FISA (Fédération Internationale de Soccer Association).

Since I consider myself a big fan of football and history enthusiast, I enjoyed the movie. It gives a good perspective on how much the game has evolved since those days. From the simple rules, referee criteria that was used to the simple and joyful style of play.

The movie itself is well structured and follows the correct chronological line of the tournament, something we don't always see in official movies from great football competitions.
