World Cup fever swept the summer with its superfluous amount of “Hottest World Cup players” listicles and the introduction of “The Team”—the German soccer team that came out on top.

Now, to relive the glory, the German Football Federation (DFB) filmed Die Mannschaft (The Team), a 90-minute movie that goes behind the scenes of the blood, sweat, and tears-soaked Germany’s World Cup win. Produced by German filmmakers Martin Christ, Jens Gronheid, and Uli Voigt, the film will include rare footage, behind-the-scenes clips, and interviews with the 23-man team.

Below, watch the trailer for the film, which showcases Bastian Schweinsteiger’s bloodied face, Mario Goetze’s game-winning goal, and Thomas Mueller looking quite fetch in a pink dirndl.

Die Mannschaft is set to be released in Germany on Nov. 13.
