This retrospective offers viewers a chance to see what it was like both on and off the field for the teams that competed in 2022's FIFA World Cup. It offers a very condensed narrative of the tournament's start, mainly highlighting the more prominent teams and biggest upsets. But as eliminations continue, more time is spent following specific teams and players. The interviews featured throughout are interesting, but the combination of behind-the-scenes footage and high-stakes moments in key matches is what makes Captains of the World an emotional and entertaining watch. No doubt that football fans will enjoy it.
