Netflix has released another must-see football documentary series

If, like many a football fan, you’ve used the Christmas break to binge-watch the excellent Sunderland ‘Til I Die in its entirety and are now at a loss as to what to watch next, fear not – this should help fill the void.

Netflix has released another football documentary series, this time about the World Cup.

Becoming Champions, which is available to watch on Netflix now, takes a look at the stories behind the players and countries that have won the World Cup.

Made up of nine episodes, the series takes an in-depth look at each nation to have won the tournament with episode five – ‘You only win once?’ looking at England’s triumph on home soil in 1966. Interviews with several World Cup winners – including Lothar Matthäus, Rivaldo and George Cohen – feature throughout the series.

Looks good, doesn’t it? The perfect excuse to lie on the couch, stuff your face with a few more chocolates from the Christmas tub, and waste away another day or two until the new year.

This is just the latest football documentary to land on Netflix. As well as the recently released look at Sunderland, they have also made behind-the-scenes series on Juventus and, more recently, Argentinian club, Boca Juniors.
