    Though the entire tournament was a treat to the eyes, it reached its climax on December 18 when Messi’s Argentina triumphed over Mbappé’s French team in an impressive penalty shootout.

    Messi delivered an outstanding performance and was consequently honored with the Golden Ball as the best overall player.

    Set to kick off on December 30, the series promises to provide a thrilling reminiscence of the World Cup tournament, along with an insider’s view.

    With another sports documentary, Netflix seems to be in an effort to up its docu-series game.

The platform also hosts the racing series ‘Formula 1: Drive to Survive’.
