When tasked by officials to pursue entry into the 1981 FIFA Youth World Championships in Australia, Evaristo finds himself in the position of building a team from scratch. After initial doubt, Evaristo’s outlook changes once he starts scouting for talent on the dirt-covered streets of Doha. After handpicking a squad of misfits, they embark on a journey of various training camps. There, the team learns to adhere to Evaristo’s method of the off-side trap and counterattack. The side qualifies and even prevails in the first round of the tournament, only to realize that they will play against the tournament favourites, Brazil and England. Through determination, skill, and strategy, Evaristo leads the Qatari team to an unprecedented final. They are defeated, but return as heroes, winning the hearts and minds of Qatari citizens and football fans around the world.
