Join host Roger Bennett of Men in Blazers for this story of the U.S. men’s soccer team that swaggered onto the international stage and set out to win the 1998 World Cup in France. When they arrived, they faced only one serious opponent: themselves.

I found the host really charming- you can tell he has a lot of enthusiasm for the sport, the United States, and for the story. I give his energy 5 stars. The execution is excellent. He's got all the experts and celebrities in for interviews and really captures the drama that the men went through. However, I feel that the story itself is overblown. The way Roger carries on God think he was covering an election, not an over- hyped and underperforming sports team. I love soccer, but by the end of the series I was bored.
