But now the Three Lions are roaring a defiant and challenging message that this time the ‘Golden Generation’ can bring back the World Cup from Germany. It would be the first time England have ever won the World Cup on foreign soil. So, can they do it? Yes, they can, say so many experts who are extensively featured in ‘This Time’. Award-winning sports writer and bestselling author Harry Harris brings you the comprehensive guide to the 2006 heroes, featuring penetrating insights into all the players and special features on England captain David Beckham, Wonder Boy Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen.
