The FIFA Women's World Cup begins this weekend as Sepp Blatter resigns and accusations of corruption in the world governing body rumble on.

The England players and their coach are in Canada, psyching up for the opening festivities and the media circus: waving and smiling for the photo-shoot and fielding questions about the shortness of their shorts. How do they feel about being guinea-pigs for artificial playing surfaces and who should take over from Blatter?

But you can put up with anything for the sake of the beautiful game.

Helen Cross writes this lightly surreal comedy.

Director...Mary Ward-Lowery
