It is an opportunity to witness top-level sports and, above all, the media pressure experienced by these top-level athletes who were expected to only do one thing: win.

About the Documentary

A well-made sports documentary that, however, does not reveal anything new. It delivers what it promises: following the players and conveying the pressure they felt during this event and what ultimately happened.

The documentary explains all the steps leading up to the World Cup and takes us through interviews with the players, the coach, the media… everything that surrounds the world of football, with all its grandeur and immense demands.

A three-hour-long documentary, divided into four chapters, that analyzes not only the American team but also women’s soccer itself and its tremendous evolution in recent years. The American players themselves attest to it: everything has changed and improved in football over the last four years.

Our Opinion

The documentary’s true value lies in its interviews: the players speak candidly and discuss every aspect of their training camp, matches, and practices. We can walk with them in Australia and see their day-to-day lives.

It is not a dramatic or sensationalized documentary, but it does show how everything has been transformed in sports, even in the last four years.

Including a legendary team like the United States.
