Debt-ridden Albion United teeters on the verge of extinction, following the death of their female owner in a tragic accident involving a trophy cabinet. When her ruthless brother announces his intention to fold Albion and build an urban golf course on their historic turf, life-long fan Ed (The Englishman) decides to fight back. Ed enlists Albion’s star striker Kel (The Irishman) and Accountant Dunc (The Scotsman) to join him on a kamikaze mission to save their team. Their goal: go to The World Cup to find a billionaire investor. Their deadline: just two weeks.

 

In common with his Celtic comrades, Ed packs some deep-seated emotional baggage, based on unresolved fatherhood issues. This steadily unravels as the pressure increases, going off the scale when his surly teenaged son Jamie runs away from home and turns up to join his father at The World Cup. His plans in tatters, Ed rashly sends Jamie straight back home – a decision he soon regrets…

 

With the guys’ attempts to entice an investor following the same downward spiral as the England team’s results, a last-ditch shot sees them pursue a wealthy - but mysteriously elusive - American. When they are led a merry dance by this investor’s train-wreck daughter, the guys’ pact and Albion’s future look doomed.

 

But with less than twenty-four hours remaining, a chance lead at a crunch England vs Germany knock-out tie offers the solution to all of their problems. All Ed has to do is: re-unite the warring Kel and Dunc; drive 400km in 3 hours; negotiate security and ticket touts; rescue the wayward heiress from an apparent mafiosi kidnapping and just maybe he’ll get a chance to pitch his beloved Albion to the big-shot ‘Daddy’. If he can achieve all this, he’ll surely gain the respect he craves from his impressionable son...
