Next Goal Wins Release Date, Cast, Plot, and Everything You Need to Know
Football (or soccer) has had a big effect on the culture around the world, for improvement or for worse. At the moment, the FIFA World Cup in Qatar is getting attention both on and off the field.
Many people are saying that this appears to be the most contentious World Cup ever. Even though this is bad, it makes it a great idea for a movie, since everyone is thinking about soccer and the World Cup in particular.
Soccer and movies have been together for a long time. Some of the best feel-good movies, like Gurinder Chadha’s Curve It Like Beckham, are set on a soccer field. Hugely popular documentaries, like Netflix’s title FIFA Uncovered, look at great sports victories and failures.
Steve Jamieson as well as Mike Brett’s Upcoming Goal Ends up winning was a documentary that a lot of fans liked. With a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, the docudrama was a commercial and critical success when it came out in Brazil during the 2014 World Cup.
Now that the 2022 World Cup will be held in Qatar, the name Upcoming Goal Wins is back, but this time as the title of a comedy-drama movie that will come out next year.
The movie is based on the same-named documentary, and it follows the proper football trainer Thomas Rongen, who was known for his harsh and unusual ways of teaching. He tried to make the American Samoa National Team’s not-very-good players into stars. Mike Brett as well as Steve Jamison are in charge of making the documentary.
The sports drama movie was supposed to come out on April 21, 2023, but it has been forced back five months. It will now come out in theatres on September 22, 2019, in the fall of 2019.
Next Goal Wins will now come out at the same time as The Expendables 4, an action movie with a lot of big names. It will also come out in the same month as The Equalizer 3, The Nun 2, and other high-profile projects.
Next Goal Wins is a sports story about an underdog team that is based on a British documentary by Mike Brett as well as Steve Jamison that came out in 2014. American Samoan soccer became famous for a bad game they played in 2001. To save the squad, Coach Thomas Rongen tries to turn the worst soccer team in the world into a team that can qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
Next Goal Wins has a lot to offer sports fans who like to watch sports shows and movies. The drama is about how Dutch football coach Thomas Rongen tries to coach an American Samoan team. Thomas wants the team to win, but they still have a lot more practice to do before they can reach their goal.
Next Goal Wins Release Date
The team that scores the next goal wins, yet what if the goalpost continues to move? The long-awaited soccer movie Next Goal Wins by Taika Waititi will be forced to learn a tough lesson as the movie’s launch date has been moved back yet again. Next Goal Wins has been set to come out in theatres on April 21, 2023, thanks to Searchlight Pictures. But the movie will not come out until September 22, 2023.
Next Goal Wins Cast
As we’ve already said, Next Goal Wins has a great crew, but a good crew without a good cast often can lead to a bad movie. The casting team for Next Goal Wins worked hard to put together such a group of actors who are sure to make a lot of noise on the screen.
First, and most notably, the wildcard coach Thomas Rongen is played by the famous Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class). Rongen’s unusual style made the original documentary a lot of fun to watch for soccer fans and people who liked the original documentary. Fassbender seems like an odd choice for the part, but fans are excited about it.
Elisabeth Moss (from “The Handmaid’s Tale”), Will Arnett (from “Arrested Development”), Rhys Darby (from “What We Do in Shadows”), Uli Latukefu (from “Black Adam”), and Angus Sampson (also from “Black Adam”) join Michael Fassbender (Fargo). This is, of course, just a small part of the great cast list that was put together for this movie.
Next Goal Wins is one of the most important movies to see in theatres next year. It has a lot of great talent on display, Waititi’s hilarious style of comedy, and a story about an underdog that will touch the hearts of everyone who sees it.

Next Goal Wins Plot
Since this is a tribute to an original documentary with the same name, it seems likely that the story will be the same. The British film chronicles American Samoa soccer as they try to get to the 2014 Brazil World Cup while the rest of the world thinks they are among the worst soccer teams ever.
There are, of course, many obvious differences between documentaries and fiction films. However, if the source material is followed with enough attention and care, the film can do more than just pay homage to it. The official plot summary also shows how much the people working on Next Minute Goal want to stay faithful to the original. It says:
NEXT GOAL WINS is a film titled Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok). It is about the infamously bad American Samoa soccer team, which is best known for losing a FIFA match 31-0 in 2001. Fans of sports movies, fans of original documentaries, and comedy fans can all get excited after reading this synopsis. The wonderful Taika Waititi is in charge of making the movie, which is a good sign.
The Next Goal Wins trailer hasn’t been released yet, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen soon. That once trailer is out, people will be able to get a better idea of what to expect. The central thrust of the movie is that Coach Thomas did take on the poorest soccer team on the planet and tried to train them to win.
Coaching is a very difficult job because it takes a lot of patience, determination, as well as persistence. Even when your team disappoints and lets you down, you can’t give up on them as a coach. Coach Thomas has had to make his soccer teamwork even though the players aren’t very athletic. Even though the movie is called a drama, there will be funny parts.
