Most men are football fans, this is a phenomenon that occurs in almost everyone.If we see a rolling ball, no matter which party is concerned, we were smitten; as well as play football video games, read about football and, why not, we watched movies about this exciting sport.

In recent months much has been talking about maybe making a film about Lionel Messi and Pele has already confirmed that soon begin filming a movie about him, so thanks to the collaboration of xmovies8 we took the opportunity to review the top 5 films about football .

A peculiar Spanish film adaptation, directed by Roberto Santiago and starringFernando Tejero , who will play Fernando, a frustrated archer who must assume great responsibility to replace the goalkeeper by a team of third division.The film is an adaptation of the book of Osvaldo Soriano .

Skedaddle (2007)

We are possibly at the first football movie focused from the point of view of an umpire who in addition to suffering a deep depression, he will be forced to continue his life directing all kinds of parties and ignoring insults the audience.The film was directed by Alvaro Fernandez Armero .

British cinema gave us The Damned United , a drama inspired by real cases.Football has never been focused on the new concepts of Michael Sheen , who adds a different and original vision. In that sense, the black humor is the best ally for these films.

Offside (2012)

This is the latest football tape. Also starring actor Fernando Tejero and under the direction of David Marquis . In offside is a comedy co – produced between Argentina and Spain. History tells us the unfortunate events that happen in a football team. Hugo Silva, Diego Peretti and Patricia Montero also participate.
