Game Of Their Lives, The

SYNOPSIS

In the spring of 1950, the United States was extended an invitation to compete in the World Cup in Brazil. Faced with budgetary restrictions and no official soccer team to call their own, the U.S. set out to recruit players in the soccer hotbead of St. Louis, Missouri, where they found a group of young friends with no professtional or international playing experience, only an unabashed love of the game. Leaving behind their wives, girlfriends and families for New York for a short 10-day training period in which these young men from different races, religions and backgrounds were forced to see past one another's differences and become a full-fledged team. With the odds considerably against them both abroad and at home, the U.S. team arrived in Rio with little training and even less fanfare. After a crushing defeat by Spain in the World Cup opener, the Americans expected more of the same.
