It had been 52 years since England last won the world cup…...there was a good feeling about this one across the country that they were going to do well because of their dominant qualifying performances. The group stages were somewhat of a breeze despite a tight loss to group leaders Belgium. They managed to get through to the last 16 where they beat Columbia on penalties but convincingly swept Sweden aside in the quarters. The streets of Manchester filled with excitement ahead of a semi-final showdown with the Croatians. Despite going ahead early in that match England were sadly beaten by an extra time winner and were knocked out of the world cup. This project is a documentation of the highs and lows faced by fans that summer.
