Summary A six-part documentary on the World Cup. Traces its 76 year history back to pre-World War Two period, through the post-war decades to the 1990s. Provides an analytical account of World Cup football matches played since then, highlighting the crucial matches; decisive goals; legendary players; fanatical fans; and universal appeal. Includes a selective archival footage of FIFA's films. They are stories of the emergence of the superpowers of world football. Features interviews with football greats, such as Zidane, Beckenbauer, Platini and Dino Zoff. This is also an account of how the World Cup has evolved with successive series of tournaments; and how World Cup football has shaped the course of the game of football worldwide. Former football champions, such as Carlos Alberto reflects on what it was like to captain Brazil's 'golden team' of 1970, acclaimed the greatest team of all time. Toto Schillaci tells how his goals transformed Italy's fortunes in 1990; and about the heartbreak of losing in a penalty shoot out. Here a team of international football legends talks about how it felt to win football's ultimate prize.
