The action begins in the present day, close to Rio de Janeiro's Maracana stadium. A young Brazilian lad called Oscar is showing off his ball skills to his family as they watch the crowd - including smartly dressed footballers and "WAGs" - arriving for the big game, while grandfather reminisces about football in the good old days. We now "flashback" to...
The 1950 World Cup Final played between Brazil and Uruguay where Brazil, the red-hot favourites are beaten by the underdogs, mainly due to nobody in the team realising that just occasionally, defending is just as important as attacking. "The World at your Feet" makes its first appearance amidst utter Brazilian desolation.
Back to the present day outside the Maracana stadium where Oscar and family meet Ratsy, Patsy and Papa, "Rapping" Paparazzi extraordinaire, who snap anything that moves, including Shannice, a lost WAG. Conversation turns to World Cup history and the very first "World Cup". We now "flashback" to...
West Auckland F.C. 1909, where the club secretary, Mr Barron is talking on the phone. His football club has been chosen to represent England in the first ever "World Cup". There follows the players' - all miners - excruciatingly funny attempts to sell all their household possessions to raise the money to travel to Italy to play in and win (which they did) the "World Cup". We now move back to the present day, outside the Maracana stadium where...
Oscar, friends and family are told how, two years later, West Auckland actually won the "World Cup" again and were allowed to keep the trophy which was unfortunately stolen. This leads conveniently to a London police station in 1966 where...
Mr Corbett and his dog "Pickles" have just arrived to present the astonished policemen with the recently stolen World Cup "Jules Rimet" trophy, found by "Pickles" in a garden hedge. Back to the present day Maracana where...
Conversation turns to the fact that despite "Pickles'" heroics, the recovered cup travelled back to Brazil, only to be stolen yet again! We move to the ice cream stall outside the Maracana stadium where...
Dancers and drummers in colourful clothes gather to dance an impromptu "Samba" before the main event. Still outside the Maracana...
Oscar, friends and family meet an old man, the commentator from the 1950 World Cup final, who gives them tickets for the World Cup final. They all meet some more footballers, this time women preparing for the Women's World Cup. The "Rapping" Paparazzi return, and "Pele" joins them for a final photo call. The show ends with the entire cast singing the show - stopping... "The World at your Feet".
