 After one too many late-night discussions, football fanatic Paul Watson and his mate Matt Conrad hatch the perfect plan: find the world's worst national team, become citizens of that country and win an international cap by playing for them. Wikipedia leads them to Pohnpei, a remote Pacific island whose team is described as 'the weakest in the world' - and in urgent need of a coach.  So Paul and Matt travel thousands of miles, leaving behind jobs, families and girlfriends, to train a rag-tag bunch of novices to glory, and become the youngest international football coaches on record. What could be simpler?  A lot, it turns out.  Adapted from the novel by Paul Watson, produced by Fred Ritzenberg,  Far Films
