An inspiring tale of one of the greatest underdog stories in sports history. Based on the true story of the 1950 United States soccer team who, against all odds, beat England 1 - 0 in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Coming together to form the team just ten days before the start of the Cup, this ragtag team of recreational players came together to represent the United Sates. Although no U.S. 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 and how they defeated England, the world's best team at that time.

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.
