Roberto Baggio: Netflix release trailer for film based on legendary striker

Netflix has unveiled a teaser trailer for a new sports film based on legendary Italian striker Roberto Baggio.

Baggio: The Divine Ponytail, also known as Il Divin Codino (which is just "The Divine Ponytail") in Italian, lands on the streaming service on May 26.

The feature is a chronicle of the 22-year career of Baggio, including his difficult debut as a player and his deep rifts with some of his coaches.

Hopefully, for Irish fans sake, there won't be too much focus on his role in the goal that ended our dreams at Italia 90.

Instead, we're expecting a glimpse at his missed penalty kick in the 1994 World Cup final shootout against Brazil.

The incredible drama which surrounded his move from Fiorentina to Juventus or maybe even his flirtation with both clubs in Milan.

Of course, the 'Divine Ponytail' nickname comes from his iconic hairstyle and Buddhist beliefs.
