The Best Ever Soccer Documentary !!!
29 September 2015 | by AtilianoSee all my reviews

This documentary of the 1986 FIFA World Cup is the best ever documentary of the game of soccer I have ever seen !!! And I have seen many documentaries of the game !!!

The narration, editing, voice over of actual broadcasts, the music and their placement within the film - everything was just brilliant. From the background of the 1986 Mexico City earthquake at the beginning of the film, the introduction of the many famous players at the time, the sound of cheering squads from different countries and then to the final championship winning goal by Jorge Burruchaga the film never fails to thrill !!!

Director and Writer Tony Maylam did a brilliant job !!! I just hope it won't be his last !!!
