    "This Netflix-original may never make it to universal popularity, but it's become a hit on its own platform. As society battles issues gender rights, a young African-American girl from Brooklyn decides to follow her dreams despite the prejudices that others try to impose on her. It's an inspiring story that helps us take a step back from politics and look at an individual as someone with hopes and dreams."

    "Definitely one of the best Netflix film! They have lots of chick flicks but I find them too cliche so its nice to see that they have sports films like these too! First Match takes you to Monique's journey... how she was forced to be tough and finding her family"

    "First Match is trash. It is exactly the typical Netflix propaganda that is ruining the entertainment industry. People are tired of the strong woman meme."
