Product Description

The true story of the footballer who put his life on the line. Many believe that, throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the Medellin drug cartel of Pablo Escobar was partly responsible for financing and building the Columbian national football team. In an early match against the USA at the 1994 World Cup, Columbian defender Andres Escobar no relation to Pablo scored an owngoal that led to the team s elimination. Less than 10 days later, Escobar was killed: shot dead in his native Medellin. The killer reportedly shouted Goal! with each pull of the trigger. Was Escobar s murder an isolated incident, or was it a revenge hit organised by cartels that had lost money gambling on the match? And would the murder have happened if Pablo Escobar, himself shot dead the year before, had been alive? Award winning directors Jeff and Michael Zimbalist examine the mysterious events surrounding Andres Escobar s violent death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant football documentary 13 Oct 2013
By Agnetha
I was intrigued by the subject, being a huge football fan, but twinning Andres Escobar`s story with Pablo seemed to add an extra bit of intrigue for me. It reflects all the pain and suffering mixed with the joy for the game of football. It shows the good and evil, in the symbol of Andres Escobar, and the ruthless evil figure of Pablo Escobar (also shown to have a good side, much like a "Robin Hood" figure). This was all captured in a very objective manner and the film makers did a wonderful job of bringing this all together on this dvd. A truly incredible film/documentary all football films (and non football fans) should watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best football film ever! 16 Oct 2012
I saw this on ESPN last night and thought the research, archive footage and narrative was brilliant. Compelling how two Escobars Who are intrinsically linked through their lives can be so different in morals but killed, allegedly by the same people. The best film about football I ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant documentary. 3 Jan 2012
This documentary is about the murder of Columbian footballer, Andreas Escobar, which was strong believed to be linked to his own goal in the World Cup that ended up eliminating Columbia from the tournament.
In turn the links between the goal, drug cartels (Pablo Escobar), betting, and the murder are closely looked at.

I have to admit I have only watched this documentary on tv and not the DVD so I can't comment on the visual quality but the content of the documentary is outstanding and has rightly deserved all the awards it has claimed.

The background of the the two Escobars is covered superbly from birth to death, their links to each other and their impacts in Columbia.

It's revealing shocking and heartbraking. Views from people closely linked to both sides are covered.

A must see for not only football fans but anyone who can remember that outstanding Columbian team or just the news headlines concerning the murder.

Outstanding!
