David Beckham (known as England’s mid-field general by some, and the sexiest man alive by others) had his foot broken by an Argentinean opponent only eight weeks before a World Cup final. The incident was just the latest chapter in a notorious 40-year battle between the two nations. Through the use of a powerful soundtrack and rich archival footage dating back to the two teams’ infamous 1966 World Cup match, Scottish director Diarmuid Lavery’s blow-by-blow account tackles one of the most intense rivalries in the history of sport: the on- and off-the-field battle between England and Argentina. Passion, patriotism, tension and tears colour the masterful play and low blows on the march to victory, and make great viewing for football lovers and loathers alike. Chris McDonald.
