ESPN recently released its documentary about Pablo Escobar and Andres Escobar. They called it “The Two Escobars”. This documentary includes the significance of drug money from Pablo Escobar to the Columbia’s soccer team.  It also shows Andres’ (a defender on Columbian World Cup soccer team) tragic story as he was killed upon returning to Columbia after the fatal mistake he’s done in a game against United States that caused the Columbia to get eliminated.

In addition to that, it also highlights another more famous Escobar from Columbia, Pablo Escobar. Pablo Escobar was a Columbian drug lord and one of the richest criminal in world history as stated by Forbes Magazine in 1989. He was born December 1, 1949 and died December 2, 1993. The Medellín Cartel has gained control over almost all of the drugs that got into the United States, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.

He finances the Columbian national team and his favorite team was the 1994 World Cup team. The fame that Pablo gained during his time has yet to forget by the people of Columbia. Two Escobars is directed by Michael Zimbalist and Jeff Zimbalist. The two produced this documentary for ESPN. It was shown last June 21 at ESPN.

    Thanks for posting this as it was a great film that made an impact all over the globe, I know as I was there in '94 at the USA game & have been directly affected by all of this mayhem. I would ask that you please pick up a dictionary though and have the courtesy to spell Colombia properly, it's not Columbia, Illinois or Columbia, South Carolina.
