T-Mobile UK has launched a special edition Samsung phone to celebrate England's latest attempt to avoid being ignominiously knocked out of the World Cup tournament. Hoping to rekindle the team's fomer glories, the handset is preloaded with a video clip of Geoff Hurst's winning goal in 1966.

The Samsung E370: Three Lions Special Edition comes packed with enough England-themed wallpaper images, animations and video clips - you can also see Beckham's classic free kick against Greece in 2001 and Lampard's qualification-clinching goal against Poland in 2005 - to keep any Blighty-backing footie fan happy.

And T-Mobile has plenty more video moments from the 'boot-iful game' for you to download. For a small consideration, of course...

As for Samsung's contribution, it's a tri-band slider phone with Bluetooth and a 1.3 megapixel camera ready for snapping goals on your nearest pub's big screen.

T-Mobile said the Three Lions Special Edition E370 is available on both pay as you go and pay monthly contracts. ®
