Angelo Pizzo talks about the art of writing scripts.

Soccer has never been one's of America's great national sports, but in 1950 the USA sent a team to represent their country in Brazil's World Cup. Of course, it helped that the eleven man team was a rag tag bunch of amateurs, college students, immigrants from other soccer-mad nations.
