In this fascinating collection of true stories taken from more than 100 years of soccer history, Andrew ward has gathered together the most extrordinary happenings ever to befall a soccer field. They include stories about the game spectators couldn't see: the game that lasted four days; the games between the strikers and the police in 1926 and between Eton College and the unemployed boys; the games of three halves; the game decided by a hypnotist; and the one in which the same player scored all four goals—two for each side. A delight for all soccer fans, this is also a unique look at the more curious moments of the beautiful sport.
