Under Staline, football was an instrument of propaganda. The fate of the Games were in the hands of the secret police and army. Newly declassified records reveal the many dark secrets hidden in the history of Russian Football up until the cold war. Today interviews of the children of the veteran players, historians contributions and never seen archives are combined to tell the story of these unsung sports heroes who bare witness of the greater political History of Soviet Russia, where Sports and Politics collide. A fascinating historical perspective and a topical subject ahead of the Football Worldcup taking place in Russia in Summer 2018.
