Premiering on September 29 at 2:30pm/1:30c, this new episode will take a look at the story of how France became champion of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™. It’s the story of a team of immigrants and sons of immigrants overcoming obstacles as they grew up to become the symbol of a generation and includes an analytic view of the three Hispanic rivals that they faced: Peru, Argentina, and Uruguay. “Que Momento” was born from Andres Cantor’s signature phrase “Que Momento,” which he uses to describe the most exciting moment in a soccer match. The quarterly special takes an in-depth journalistic look at some of the greatest and most memorable moments in sports history.
