This looks like it is going to be an incredible documentary. Here is the premise. American Samoa is pretty much the worst team in international soccer. They were so bad that they lost a game to Australia 31-0. That’s just crazy. It’s the worst loss in an international match. Something had to be done. So who do they bring in to coach? Thomas Rongen.
Dunny and I both know Thomas. He’s a good dude. He was Dunny’s coach at New England when Dunny entered the league. Thomas has a ton of coaching experience at all kinds of levels. He was a great player in his day and he can tell one helluva story. Anyway…
So Thomas takes over to try and help move the needle a bit for American Samoa. Make them a better team. Better players. It just so happens that a film crew decides to document the process. And the trailer for it looks amazing.
I can only imagine what the journey has been like for Thomas and the American Samoa players. This looks like it hits all kinds of emotions and that it is an incredible story. Hats off to our friend Thomas, American Samoa and the filmmakers of this. I can’t wait to see this!
There is a Tumblr showcasing the behind-the-scenes of the movie making experience. You want to check that out as well. More details when we get them.
