After the controversial and compelling premiere on the life of Diego Armando Maradona, it is time to review the five best series and documentaries based on soccer. What would be missing?

It is an 8-episode TV series that tells the life of the megastar Carlos Tevez, from his childhood in the neighborhood of Fuerte Apache to reaching the top with Boca Juniors. On Netflix it came to light.

Edson Garantes do Nascimento exposes everything he learned on the street to become the star of the World Cup in Brazil in 1958. Few could imagine that from that moment football would never be the same again. It can be seen on Youtube.

Created by Martín Zimmerman and directed by Adrián Caetano, in order to unmask the black areas of the traded around football activity. Recommendable.

It is a miniseries about the origins of modern football in England, where two 19th century footballers, from disparate social classes, face professional and personal conflicts in order to change a booming and non-professional sport – and a country -.

Diego Armando Maradona (1960-2020) is played by three different actors in a science fiction, throughout his life and prolific career; from his humble beginnings in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Fiorito and going through his career as a footballer at Barcelona and Napoli, among other outstanding events in his life.

Another of the most notable focuses is his key role in the victory of his national team in the Soccer World Cup in Mexico ’86. At 22:00, on Channel 9, it reached 8.8 rating points. Furor when it was seen on Argentine TV and on Amazon.
