Review Text

For a man who a couple of years earlier hitchhiked round Ireland accompanied only by a fridge in order to win a 100 bet, taking on the entire Moldovan football team (one at a time) at tennis was only a tiny, imaginative step away. But just tracking down the team proved fraught with difficulties, not least of which were acquiring a smattering of Romanian, negotiating food poisoning and navigating his way around authorities not necessarily itching to help. And to cap it all, Hawks finds himself going to Israel to play the last of his games. Here's an amusing story of a journey with a purpose, which proves it's not the winning but the taking part that counts. (Kirkus UK)
