About the Film:

Directed by Mike Brett, Steve Jamison. 2014. UK.  90 mins.

After suffering a world record 31-0 defeat at the hands of Australia in 2001, American Samoa – self-described as “the worst football team in the world” – is still in search of its first competitive win. When maverick Dutch coach Thomas Rongen arrives on the island to help the team achieve this elusive goal, he discovers that his ramshackle team includes an emotionally scarred goalkeeper and the first transgender player ever to play international football. They haven’t scored a goal for four years. With the team about to embark on a gruelling World Cup Qualification campaign, Rongen has just one month to transform this ramshackle collection of players into a winning team– and perhaps learn a little about himself along the way. Next Goal Wins is a hilarious and moving exploration of what it really means to be a winner in life.
