A mosque is being built onthe site where Cinderheath's iconic steelworks once dominated the town. 'The Tipton Three', from just down the road, are imprisoned in Guantanamo; the BNP expect to win new seats on the council. St. George's flags fly from cars and windows; the World Cup is beginning, England to play Argentina. But first, a controversial Sunday-league football game must take place billed by the press as 'a match to spark a race war'. Rob, once a professional footballer like his famous father, is now a track-suited teaching assistant, sympathetic to the children of the families he knows to well. On the pitch, as the BNP prowl the touchlines, he finds himself facing Zubair, the brother of his missing best friend. Both men are bound together by the mystery of Adnan's disappearance.
