Publisher's Summary

He's back! Budleigh Salterton's most famous citizen, traveller and worldly guru knows nothing about football or Germany, but from the moment he decides to book a strolling holiday in the Schwarzwald ("because it'll be nice and quiet this time of year"), he pitches headlong into the thrilling arena of the World Cup. He may never have played football, but, he was Sports Monitor at school, (or as he puts it, "I was the only one allowed to touch the Master's ballbag at Charterhouse").Originally transmitted over the three weeks of the 2006 competition itself, Giles inevitably finds himself on a series of baffling adventures and mishaps, involving, amongst other things, the Iranian squad, a stolen World Cup, a very big cake and fifty sticks of Leipzig rock. And to make matters worse, his fiancée Bella is coming out to meet him in Nuremberg to help plan their forthcoming wedding. As is her mother.... In this first part of the three Sony Award-winning World Cup 2006 programmes, Giles encounters the Iranian National Squad, a pig-liver doughnut, two sombreros and a man with a red cross painted on his face."Not since I first heard Alan (Partridge) have I felt so sure that I was in the presence of an immortal" - (The Sunday Telegraph.) "Consistently funny and elegantly produced" - ( Mail On Sunday. )"Hilarious spoof" - (Time Out)
