`The game is finally getting the literature it deserves.' The Times `Brilliantly tackled...unique.' London Evening Standard `Mightily impressed.' When Saturday Comes `Exhaustively researched....fascinating.' The Independent `An indispensable guide to football history and culture.' FourFourTwo An end-to-end collection of amusing, bizarre and shocking true stories from the pre-eminent competition of the world's favourite sport, replete with a supporting cast of dodgy refs, eccentric mascots and manic managers. Find out how a dog called Pickles saved the FA's blushes, why an England captain was arrested by Colombian police, where the Mexican wave really started, why the German fans taunt the Dutch with cheesy insults, and which defender was shot for scoring an own goal. If 90 minutes plus extra-time and penalties is just your sort of entertainment, The World Cup's Strangest Moments is guaranteed to score. Now fully revised and updated with great new stories from the qualifying campaigns for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
