The Final Score: Season 1/EP 1
While a telephone rings loudly in another room, the television in the living room reports the death of Cameroon’s national football player: Andres Escobar. A woman picks the phone and starts crying after listening to the caller. We’re shown a timeline of years past where men last-named Escobar have been killed for several reasons. There’s extreme violence, burning of cars, blood on the floor and finally the screen stops in 1987 in Medellin, Colombia. A family has gathered for breakfast. After several calls for him, Andres Escobar finally comes to the table with a bowl of ice which he sets down on the ground, and places his feet in it. His leg is inflamed. A toast is made to Santiago Escobar who’s going to play for America, and Andres gives him a scapular as a parting gift.
On a football field, Andres does leg stretches while the others train. He watches as a player, Quique, is scolded by the coach. A dentist, Fransisco, is attending to a patient when his wife, Margarita, walks in to tell him he has visitors. Agudelo, a patron, has come to recruit Fransisco as a manager, but the latter says he’s not interested at all.

Quique is present there, but he escapes with minor injuries because of his identity as a national player. Andres Escobar is in the doctor’s office, getting a report about his leg. His condition is not getting any better as it worsens anytime he runs. The doctor tells him the only way to recover is by quitting soccer.

Fransisco arrives at Agudelo’s office and accepts the offer of club manager on the condition that he brings local players on board. Agudelo accepts and they clink glasses to it.

On his way home, Quique is stopped by a group of men. They ask about the shootout and Quique says he couldn’t recognise the assaulters as they wore masks. It’s another day of practice and Andres is told to stand down even when he has a good chance with the ball. When the lineup is being called for the next game, Andres leaves the room. His name is not on the list. He stays home and listens to the commentary on the game. The team has lost another game. Don Agudelo speaks with Fransisco after the game. He tells Fransisco that the team has to win against America at all costs because it’s now a war. The losing team will be ousted. While playing a game with his daughter, Fransisco realises what he has been doing wrong. At the next practice, he switches things up a bit.
Andres is told to lead the opponent to the offside of the pitch, creating holes in their defense so that their team, Atletico Nacionel can slip in. Andres gets kicked over a lot during practice that his ankle starts to hurt. Quique does not make the list of lineups. The coach tells him to stick with training.

René tells him that he must defeat his brother, Santiago, on the pitch. Quique is in his room, sulking, when the older man comes to tell him he has visitors. The men take him away to deliver unknown merchandise.

Another day, Andres shows up for practice and finds the field swimming with cops. Hernan tells him that the cops arrested René on suspicion of kidnapping.

It is time for the elimination round of the world cup and the team is playing against Argentina. Andres goes to watch the game with René in prison. They set the TV up so that the other inmates can watch too. Soon after, Quique is let out too so that he can see the game. Andres asks Quique about his case and promises that they’ll play together on the team again. Quique says Clara blamed everything on him so he has 30 years with no immunity on the counts of terrorism and weapon trafficking.
The inmates offer René a bottle of gin and he shares it between Andres, Quique and himself. Andres doesn’t like the taste at first but gets used to it soon after. The national team is winning against Argentina by 3—0. The prison gets noisier as the goals pour in. By the fifth goal, the officers can no longer contain the crowd. They take Andres away and take Quique somewhere else that’s not his cell. They also take René away but we’re not shown the particular cell. Andres calls for René and Quique as he’s being dragged away but the officers don’t stop. Some prisoners are let free and they enter Quique’s cell and stab him severally until he dies.
