The Game of Their Lives in a nutshell
The tagline to this movie is not strictly true, since the game was against England alone. The movie tells the tale of the 1950 US football team who, against all odds, beat England 1-0 for the first time in their history. The story details the passions which shaped the lives of the players who made up the team.
The Game of their Lives is an exciting underdog movie and is motivational in that it's a true tale about a team of ordinary men who did something extraordinary. They didn't expect to win as most of the teams they played in the tournament were largely professionals, whereas they were just amateurs. If you're not English, you’ll probably be very inspired by the movie!
