Movies about any sport are difficult to make without being overly cliché or cheesy at some points. Of course, even if they’re either of those, if done in the right way, they can still be incredible. Even harder than making a movie about a sport like boxing is one about a team sport like soccer. Whether you choose to put the focus on the entire team in a more general sense or you shine a light on just a handful of players, it feels like you’re missing out.
