A story about rival football firms and how one man wants to see them team together for the European Championships of 1988

This made-for-television drama film caused more than few ripples at the time of its release, but is of course now highly praised. The cult classic would not normally be listed on this site, but Nick Love broadly remade the film in 2009, thus the original has been included here for completeness. The film includes shots of the frontage to King’s Cross station, with its neighbour St Pancras also visible.
