Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play The manager of England&39;s national football unexpectedly succumbs to a heart attack and suddenly the search is on for a replacement Most people who seem qualified for the position have the good sense to turn it down and so the responsibility falls to Mike Bassett a scruffy and loud-mouthed lout whose claim to football fame is leading a previously undistinguished team to a league championship Bassett insists that England will win the World Cup under his leadership but that&39;s before he replaces his star player with a once-gifted footballer who has since developed a drinking problem and hired a one-time car salesman as his assistant After stunning losses to Poland and Belgium Bassett goes from a favorite of both fans and the press to one of the most hated men in England; hoping to whip his team into shape he subjects them to the high-tech training methods of eccentric Dr Shoegaarten which injures more players than it helps Despite Bassett&39;s ineptitude England manages to qualify for the World Cup tournament thanks to group opponents Turkey losing their final game and he flies to Rio with his team in hopes of somehow turning their bad luck around

When Phil Cope (Malcolm Terris), the manager of the England football team, suffers a heart attack during the qualifying rounds of the World Cup, the Football Association opts to replace him with Norwich FC manager Mike Bassett (Ricky Tomlinson). Followed everywhere he goes by a documentary crew, Bassett gets off to a rocky start when his boys lose to Poland, and he doesn't fare much better in games against Belgium and Slovenia. The press are against him, and the country as a whole seems to have little hope for the national team, but can Bassett do the impossible and turn the lads' game around?
