Fifa has launched the FIFA + digital platform, which allows free viewing of rich content to football fans around the world, reports 24 Sata.
The series “Captains” will soon be available on the platform, which follows six captains behind the scenes as they lead their countries through the qualifications for the World Cup in Qatar, including Croatia’s fierce leader Luka Modrić.
The series explores the leadership qualities of each individual but also the different roles of captains, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Gabon), Brian Kaltak (Vanuatu), Andre Blake (Jamaica), Hassan Maatouk (Lebanon), and Thiago Silva (Brazil) in addition to Modrić.
At the age of 36, Modrić remains the engine of Real Madrid and the Croatia national team, and one of the main reasons why Netflix, one of the world’s largest streaming services, showed interest in the FIFA documentary. As 24 Sata has learned, they are in advanced negotiations with FIFA, and the mentioned series will probably be found on that popular streaming platform as well.
The Netflix streaming service has already released super-successful documentaries about Michael Jordan, Michael Schumacher, and Formula 1, to name a few.
The series will, among other things, feature never-before-released footage from Luka’s childhood, details from his private life, and viewers will be able to see first-hand the atmosphere within the national team during their hunt for the World Cup in Qatar.
According to 24 Sata, Luka expressed regret that the cameras did not film Croatia’s path to the silver medal at the World Cup in Russia. Still, this series should also arouse great interest among viewers.
Equally, FIFA+ will soon release a feature-length documentary, “Croatia: Defining the Nation,” by acclaimed director Louis Myles, which talks about how football unites and connects the Croatian people and a group of friends who have gained global recognition in the face of extreme hardships. Each of them became a legend and painted their country around the world.
The film tells many stories of Croatia’s bronze national team in 1998, such as Davor Šuker’s Golden Boot at the 1998 World Cup, and the captain of the national team at that time, Zvonimir Boban.
