Product description

Who was the first player ever to be sent off? Which genius, in a moment of equal madness and inspiration, decided to try and score while the ball was still above his head? And who invented that most courageous but uncomfortable of skills - the header? In this complete collection of footballing firsts, Tim Harris charts the development of the game - moment by moment, rule by rule, and idea by idea - from the simple pastime of years gone by to the complex and technical global game it is today. Who Invented the Header? is a compendium full of surprising facts and scintillating stories which will engross football fans.
