Book Review: Worst in the World – International football at the bottom of the FIFA Rankings by Aidan Williams

Back in 1992 FIFA introduced their rankings to establish who the best teams in the world were and of course once that list was created, there had to be logically a nation that sat at the bottom of it and with it the label of ‘the worst team in the world’.

Book Review: Ryan Giggs – Fifty Defining Fixtures by Tony Matthews

The latest footballing figure to feature in the Fifty Defining Fixtures series from Amberley Publishing is ex-Manchester United and Wales legend Ryan Giggs. These books are not intended as a full biographical analysis of a player or manager’s career, but rather an overview which the author illustrates through their choice of key games. And in that regard there is a place for this type of formulaic book, as long as they are done well.

Book Review: 66: The World Cup in Real Time by Ian Passingham

30 July 2016 will mark fifty years since England captain Bobby Moore raised aloft the World Cup at Wembley after a 4-2 victory over West Germany in the Final. On the one hand it should be a time for celebration and acknowledgment of the achievement of Sir Alf Ramsey and his squad, but on the other it will be a harsh reminder of England’s lack of success in international football since that time.

Book Review: The Soccer Diaries – An American’s thirty-year pursuit of the International game by Michael J. Agovino

In 1982 the FIFA World Cup took place in Spain and Agovina managed to watch on the Spanish International Network (SIN) a game between Argentina and Belgium. He was hooked, Agovina “wanted to be part of that. It was less than two hours, less than a baseball game or football, basketball or hockey but it was exhausting – and exhilarating.”
