Screenings continuing at the Dunfanaghy Film Club this Friday with the colourful documentary “Next Goal Wins”.

It takes place at the cinema room of Dunfaanghy Work House this Friday, September 25, at 7.30pm.

This documentary chronicles American Samoa’s 2014 World Cup campaign. The same team made footballing history and the planet’s back pages when their efforts to qualify for 2002 produced a series of catastrophic results, including a whopping 31-goal defeat by Australia.

At the beginning of Next Goal Wins, the World’s official Worst Team are tied for 204th and last in the Fifa rankings, and have been outscored 229-12 since starting international play in 1994.

This engaging, feel-good sports film is commendably respectful of its subjects and tells the story of how them team adapt and react when a new tough talking coach takes the helm of the side.

Everyone is welcome.
