This is no ordinary soccer match. This is war! The battlefield: a stadium in occupied Paris. The armies: German All-Stars vs. Ragtag Allied POWs. The objective: demonstrate another “proof” of Aryan superiority. Guess who wins? Better yet, guess who cleverly uses the match as a means of escape?
Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine and Max Von Sydow star in this rouser directed by the legendary John Huston. The climatic match is a heart-inthe- throat, hat-in-the-air exhibition of brute force and balletic grace featuring soccer legends Pelé, Bobby Moore, Osvaldo Ardiles, Co Prins, Mike Summerbee and more. Score a splendid entertainment goal for Victory!
