Book Description:

Top 10 of Football publishes in time for the 2010 World Cup, when football will be at the forefront of global consciousness.

About the Author:

Russell Ash has written and contributed to over 100 successful books, including over 20 years of The Top 10 of Everything and their complementary titles including Top 10 for Men and Top 10 of Britain. He is regularly featured on TV and radio.

Ian Morrison had a trial with Stoke City in the summer of 1964, but failed because the trainer would not allow him to play in his glasses. A sports statistics fanatic, he has been compiling records since receiving the aptly-named Maurice Golesworthy’s Encyclopaedia of Association Football as a Christmas present in 1956. He has written or co-written over 80 books on sports ranging from boxing to American football, snooker to motor racing, as well as The Hamlyn Encyclopedia of Soccer.
