    • Synopsis
    • Before the Premier League and multi-million pound salaries, in England ‘football’ was a dirty word. The game was in disgrace, the fans, hooligans, the nation, it seemed, were all played out. Then there was Italia '90 - The World Cup - a shot at redemption.
      But this was no ordinary World Cup and no ordinary time. The manager, Sir Bobby Robson, was under intense media scrutiny, and his team described as ‘donkeys’. Yet over six short weeks, through their heroic exploits they united a nation, coming within a heart beat of reaching the World Cup Final.
      Featuring match action - from Platt's last-gasp winner against Belgium, to the silky skills of Gazza and the cool finishing of Lineker - and previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage, this is the definitive story of England's greatest adventure on foreign soil... so far.
      Soundtrack includes tracks from Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets, Adamski, Joy Division, The Charlatans, New Order, James, The Farm and others.
