Soviet Football: The Untold Story

This film offers new insights into the USSR and the KGB, showing how Stalin used football to enhance his image. The secret police controlled everything except football, which escaped its grip because the players were seen as heroes. Footballers became propaganda tools for the Soviet regime, except when they were deported to the Gulag for beating teams supported by the KGB! Football in the USSR was a political and ideological combat sport.
