| Before FIFA
This film made for Channel 4 was broadcast in the run up to the 1982 World Cup.

A true life tale set well before 1930 when the first FIFA World Cup competition was held.

This was a story set in Italy in 1909 where a World Club competition was held and a team for West Auckland who represented England won the Sir Thomas Lipton trophy.

It was a tale of whimsy and a great deal of humour and good performances all around especially from Dennis Waterman who was looking to move away from his Minder role.
