Gary Lineker tells the inside story of England's World Cup campaign. Starting with the qualifying process under new manager Fabio Capello, he shows how the England side evolved and improved, after the disappointments under Eriksson and McClaren. Lineker assesses how the key players performed in the build-up to the tournament, and which ones managed to bring themselves to the fore during the hard-fought Premiership season.
Once the squad is selected, Lineker provides a day-by-day account of England's progress. Based on his own experiences of two World Cup tournaments as a player, plus his ongoing role in the media, Lineker gives a fascinating insight into the unique pressures of the World Cup and assesses England's performances. With plenty of behind-the-scenes drama, this first-ever African World Cup is sure to be one of the most dramatic sporting stories of the year, and who better to record what happened than Gary Lineker?
