Film details


Comedy. Unqualified, old-school Mike Bassett becomes manager of the England football team, as nobody else is interested in the job. His team, not helped much by unruly former star player Tonka, scrapes through to the finals in Brazil, where Mike needs all his powers of rhetoric to rally the team and appeal for support from the nation's fans and press, to bring some chance of victory.
