World Cup by David Ross, Bob Cattell


World Cup by David Ross, Bob Cattell

England hosts the World Cup finals - and Sherwood Strikers provide the home squad with five players, including midfielder Thomas Headley. But the national coach is under a cloud, the team is no happy family and the opposition is the world's best. They say that England likes to win through from an underdog position - but can it really be done? In the high-pressure chamber that is Wembley, Thomas Headley faces the toughest test of his career.
