Documentary  TV-G

On June 12, 2010, the United States and England met in a highly anticipated World Cup match in South Africa. The two teams last played in June of 1950, when the U.S. defeated the English club in one of the great upsets in sports history. Five of the starters on that championship team hailed from the working-class — and predominantly Roman Catholic — neighborhoods of St. Louis. Their aggressive, fast and tough style set the standard for the way soccer would be played at the national level. A TIME FOR CHAMPIONS charts the influence of St. Louis' immigrant community, amateur leagues and college teams on the development and increased popularity of soccer in the United States. The story is told through archival footage, still photos and interviews with baseball legend Yogi Berra, NBC sportscaster Bob Costas, U.S. Soccer Federation president Dan Flynn, Michigan State coach Joe Baum, Indiana University coach Jerry Yeagley, former players of St. Louis University and members from the 1950 World Cup championship team.
