Synopsis

Following a 31- 0 drubbing at the hands of Australia in 2001, American Samoa were officially declared by FIFA to be the world’s worst football team. That did not put them off however, as this moving and uplifting documentary demonstrates. We join the team – who include the emotionally scarred goalkeeper who conceded those 31 goals, and the world’s first international transgender player - as they attempt to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with the help of maverick Dutch coach Thomas Rongen. Football fans will find much to enjoy, but what makes this film stand apart are its portraits of the wider, often impoverished American Samoan community, local pride, and a group of warm, charismatic (if not especially gifted) footballers, who embody the true spirit of sport.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
