Its a great one. Also Once Brothers about the Yugoslavian war & their basketball team.

But that Colombian team was stacked. Amazing they did so poorly in 94.

Its been awhile since I watched the Escobar documentary, didn't they suggest that his murder wasn't actually tied to the WC own goal but more just the typical violence that came out of nightclub confrontations in Medellin at the time?

It's speculated that had Pablo not been killed Andres would have lived because Pablo was such a huge soccer fan, specifically columbian national team fan nobody would have been brazen enough to go after anyone from the columbian team.  Pablo kept all other gangsters in check.

While we're at it, "Hillsborough" is equally a great but very tough watch.  Really messed up, everything about it from the disaster itself to the investigation, still not settled to this day.
