Who doesn’t love the World Cup?

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.

Netflix has released another football documentary series, this time about the greatest tournament of all – the World Cup.

Becoming Champions – which is available to watch on Netflix now – focuses on 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.

Interviews with several World Cup winners – including Lothar Matthäus, Rivaldo and George Cohen – feature throughout.

Check out the trailer below.

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, the streaming giant has also premiered a behind-the-scenes look at Juventus and, more recently, Argentinian club Boca Juniors.
