"This is a country riddled with violence, but we cannot be afraid." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for a new mini-series from Colombia titled The Final Score, also known as Goles en Contra. Based on the Andrés Escobar murder case of 1994 after the World Cup, this series explores the complex link between pro soccer (fútbol) and drug cartels during the ’80s and ’90s in Colombia. The complicated relationship of several of the Colombian national team players with drug trafficking, one that culminated in the own goal and murder of one of the most beloved defenders in the world. "The difficult decisions that our idols had to face match after match, as they fall apart amid a violent nightmare. But, above all, it's about the dream of a country and a team that will be remembered forever." Starring John Alex Castillo as Francisco Maturana, Juan Pablo Urrego as Andrés Escobar, Patricia Tamayo as Aparicio, Andrés Mauricio Pizarro as René Higuita, and Brain Andrés Velez Gallego. The 4:3 style is jarring, but the rest of it looks engaging.
