    • Synopsis
    • In the early 80s, El Salvador was living the beginning of what would be a 12 year long civil war. It was in that time that from the common people, a group of soccer players emerged to unite an entire country with their game. It was this group, that through soccer, was able to bring back the hope, happiness and pride, a nation had lost to war.
      In the middle of flying bullets and armed confrontations, El Salvador’s National Soccer Team achieved an unforgettable classification to the 1982 Spain World Cup, where against the world’s strongest soccer teams, they would try to score their first World Cup goal ever.
      El Salvador was defeated by Hungary 10-1 in their first match, and it was in this game, the worst defeat ever in a World Cup, that El Salvador scored what is still today, the only Salvadoran goal in this type of competition.
