The latest in the series that gave you The Tour de France, The World Cup will stand out from other World Cup books on the market with a strong, irreverent, humorous writing voice. The World Cup leaves the pundits' picks for who will win and who will star to the other books (they invariably get it wrong anyway) and concentrates on the weird, whacky, controversial and legendary moments of the world's best sporting event. With cult heroes, rule breakers, fanatic fans and everything else under the sun, there are hundreds of brilliant tales in the history of the game and they will be covered just as extensively as the heroes and greatest matches which also deserve examination. One for the fans and the beginners!
