In the spirit of 'Remember The Titans', 'Miracle' and 'The Rookie', 'The Miracle Match' is the incredible story about the men behind one of the all-time greatest upsets in sports history. Two weeks before the 1950 World Cup, a ragtag group of recreational soccer players from St. Louis and New York were chosen to represent the U.S.A. in Brazil. Consumed with conflicts -- personal, cultural and playing styles -- they had mere days to become a team. And then they had to play the British, the best team in the world. Inspired by a newfound belief in the team, their passion and talent turned into pure magic on the field -- and the unthinkable happened. Filled with heart-stopping action, and featuring Patrick Stewart, this triumphant story is a rousing celebration of the human spirit, love of the sport and pride in country.
