Synopsis:
'Next Goal Wins' is an inspirational story about the power of hope in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. In 2001, the tiny Pacific island of American Samoa suffered a world record 31-0 defeat at the hands of Australia, garnering headlines across the world as the worst football team on the planet. A decade after that humiliating night, they remain rooted to the bottom of FIFA's World rankings, having scored only twice in seventeen years. Against this backdrop of serial underachievement, the team face the daunting prospect of a qualification campaign for the upcoming 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
It would take a miracle-maker or a madman to turn the team's fortunes around - and in maverick Dutch coach Thomas Rongen the islanders somehow find both. A film for non football lovers and football fans alike, 'Next Goal Wins' is a classic underdog story set amongst the beauty and tribal magic of the South Pacific.
