Synopsis

After suffering a world record 31-0 defeat at the hands of Australia in 2001, the tiny Pacific island of American Samoa - officially the worst football team on earth - are still in search of their first ever competitive win.

When maverick Dutch coach Thomas Rongen arrives on the island to help the team achieve this elusive goal, he discovers that his team consists of an emotionally scarred goalkeeper, a collection of clinically obese 'athletes' and the first transgender player ever to compete at international level. To complicate matters further, their best player has joined the US military and now lives 6000 miles away. They haven't scored a goal for four years.

With the team about to embark on a gruelling World Cup Qualification campaign, Rongen has just one month to transform this ragtag of losers into a winning team - and perhaps learn a little about himself along the way. http://archersmark.co.uk/next-goal-wins/#.UrBX7I3N8Uo
