Brian Glanville's dramatic history of the world's most famous soccer tournament has become the most authoritative guide to the World Cup. His classic, bestselling account is a vivid celebration of the great players and legendary matches in the competition from Uruguay in 1930 to Brazil in 2014 - as well as a bold attack on those who have mismanaged the "beautiful game". Fully revised and updated in anticipation of Russia's hosting of the event in 2018, this is the definitive book on the World Cup for soccer fans and novices alike.
