Abstract

With the reiterated crime tropes tired post-war, and imitating the headline-generating football celebrities of the 1960s such as George Best, the football film focus shifted to team dynamics and the hard-drinking individual indulged for his mercurial genius. This culminates in the Goal! trilogy (2005–9), a FIFA-backed attempt to break the sport in the USA.
