The World Cup: The Complete History by Terry Crouch
The Socceroos have the chance to make some history of their own in Germany in June, when they face Japan, Brazil and Croatia in their group phase of the World Cup finals.
In the pages of this encyclopedic book is everything anyone could ever want to know about the World Cup, from the very first finals in Uruguay in 1930 to the last qualifying match for this year’s tournament in Germany. Whether you want to know which Australian player scored on own goal in 1974 in Hamburg, find out which two dozen players have been awarded the golden boot over the past eight decades, or simply study the players of the four first-time African teams for 2006, this is the ultimate reference work to answer all your questions and supply every statistic.
Above all, it’s a celebration of the beautiful game’s premier occasion, as every four years the footballing nations come together, pitting the finest players of all against each other, for one of the greatest sporting events in the world.
