I’d never heard of this film but came across the movie when I visited this smart soccer blog by Jennifer Doyle. But the movie is called ‘Vikash Dhorasoo: The life of a football substitute’.
It’s about Dhorasoo, a player who was supposed to be a big part of France’s World Cup run in Germany but ended up spending a majority of his time on the bench. Seems like a very interesting film, less about the play on the field but more in the mind of the player, a new look at the game, along the lines of the one about Zidane.
Dhorasoo is of Indo-Mauritian origin and played for PSG in France.
