Nationwide is looking to strike a cord with football fanatics in the run up to the World Cup with the launch of a bond which will benefit from a rate rise should England win the tournament.

The 4 Year Football Bond is a fixed term account with a minimum investment of £1K paying 4.15% yearly (4.05%). A conditional bonus of 0.50% will be paid each year from 14.5.11 to maturity if Mr Capello's boys do the business in South Africa.

Early access can only be made if the account is closed, an act that is subject to 320 days' loss of interest. Further additions are not permitted.

This is a competitive account which savers hope will be boosted by a glorious summer performance by the three lions.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
