There is a good chance you have time on your hands right now due to the coronavirus. If you are like me, you are mainlining shows on Netflix and Prime. If you are looking for football to watch, there are plenty of great documentaries to view while self-isolating. Here is a look at five you shouldn’t miss.
Boca Juniors Confidential
Boca Juniors are the biggest football club in Argentina and arguably the largest in South America. Boca Juniors Confidential is four-episode documentary that follows the club ahead of the 2018 Superliga season. It is a great inside look at one of the biggest, most well-supported football clubs in world football.
Sunderland ’til I Die
Sunderland ’til I Die debuted in 2018 and is comprised of two seasons. It is an incredible documentary looking at Sunderland following their relegation to League One. The club’s strong fan support is on display throughout the documentary making it an incredibly strong football series.
Make Us Dream
Make Us Dream is the ideal documentary for Liverpool fans. It details the life and career of former captain Steven Gerrard and pays close attention to the time leading up to his Anfield departure. The documentary shows just how much football impacts the body and mind of a player no matter how successful they are.
All or Nothing: Brazil National Team
Prime’s All or Nothing series is a brilliant look at football clubs and national teams. The series started with a series on Manchester City and followed it up with a series on Brazil during the Copa America 2018. All or Nothing follows the team’s highs and lows of the competition as they lifted the cup trophy. The next All or Nothing documentary will be based on Tottenham Hotspur.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a polarising figure, but one thing is for sure, he never disappoints on or off the pitch. Becoming Zlatan follows the striker’s career using archival footage from his early years at Malmo up to his time in Italy.
