    DescriptionWhether it be from a surprise free kick or a never-ending dribble, a nonchalant lob or a volley on the run, the goal can be a thing of beauty and jaw-dropping skill. From Diego Maradona's weaving dribble against England to Wayne Rooney's astonishing bicycle kick against Man City, "Back of the Net" shows exactly what made these goals so great. Graphic illustrations break down each goal into its component parts, showing the angles of play plus the movements of all the key players and their positions on the pitch. Meanwhile commentary explains the background to the goals, the players and just what makes each goal so special. With sensational skills, football's biggest legends and the most exciting teams from around the world, "Back of the Net" shoots and scores as essential reading for every football fan.

    Review quote
    "Essential reading for football anoraks" Woman & Home "For those who like books that can be picked up and put down just a few minutes later, yet retain an interest for long after, Back of the Net is perfect... And that's the beauty of a book like this - even when it's not in your hand it sparks football's greatest debates" -- Chris Lakey Eastern Daily Press "A compendium of the best 100 goals ever scored" The Times
