The trailer has been released.

A trailer for a new Netflix series ‘Captain of the World’, featuring interviews with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane, has been released.

Anyone with a passing interest in football will know what happened at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Despite controversy off the pitch, the tournament was one of immense drama, with four-time Champions Germany being knocked out in the group stages, Morocco becoming the first-ever African side to reach the last four and Messi skippering Argentina to glory after the most dramatic of finals.

But on Friday, Netflix released a trailer for their upcoming docu-series Captains of the World, which will provide a totally new insight into the lives of the world’s greatest players as they attempt to navigate their respective nations to glory.

Netflix claims the documentary offers “exclusive access to all 32 teams” as they fight to win the World Cup, while the trailer includes interviews with Ronaldo, Messi, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Didier Deschamps and England skipper Kane, among others.

The trailer also features several clips from the dressing room and the team hotels during the tournament. You can watch the Captain of the World trailer below.

The rising popularity of sports documentaries, such as shows on Manchester City, Arsenal and more recently Wrexham, have made the World Cup an attractive proposition while it represents a coup for Netflix.

The documentary is part of a multi-million-pound deal with FIFA's broadcasting arm, FIFA+.

The series is a follow-on from the 'Captains' documentary released in 2022, which detailed the qualification campaigns of several teams, including Modric’s Croatia, Thiago Silva’s Brazil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Gabon.

The production company that was in charge of 'Captains' was Fulwell 73, the British group that won rave reviews for 'Sunderland 'till I Die'.
