Storyline

England, 1879. With football still in its infancy and an amateur sport, upper-class teams, led by Old Etonians, have dominated the early years of the FA Cup. But a revolution is brewing: against the rules of the FA, James Walsh, the owner of working-class side Darwen FC and the associated mill, secretly pays talented Scottish players Fergus Suter and Jimmy Love to join the team ahead of the cup quarterfinals against Old Etonians, whose roster features several members of the FA Board, including team captain Arthur Kinnaird.

A great tribute to the beautiful game
21 March 2020 | by tilokaudamanSee all my reviews

THE ENGLISH GAME is a beautiful and well made historical drama. Everything about it is compelling - great characters, high production quality and thrilling game sequences. I watched the whole thing in one day and enjoyed every minute of it.
