Seven minutes remain in extra time in the Rugby World Cup Final. South Africa trails New Zealand 12-9.
The New Zealanders are pressing and if they score, South Africa is almost certainly lost. South Africa is called for a penalty and its captain, François Pienaar (portrayed by Matt Damon), huddles the team and gives them a 20-second inspirational speech.
It’s short, sweet, and to the point.
