From Warner Bros. Pictures and Pathe Productions, we see the 2010 film Africa United heading to Netflix for the first time and given that we just saw the end of the World Cup; there is a nice football (or soccer) theme.

The story revolves around four children who travel two thousand miles to the World Cup but encounter the struggles of life along the way, including HIV and child prostitution.

The film holds 89% on RottenTomatoes, and a review on IMDb concluded that the film “makes you laugh” and “will make you cry”.
