Description

Soccer. No other sport in the world captivates a bigger audience — and no other competition electrifies its fans like the World Cup. Now, just in time for the next World Cup competition, comes a book just for kids, jam-packed with information about each and every World Cup ever played.

Want to know who was behind the biggest surprise defeat of the 1950 tournament? It’s in here. Curious about what happened to the Jules Rimet trophy when it was in England? Turn to the chapter on World Cup 1966. Wondering what the term Total Football means?

And because it all comes from Matt Christopher, young readers know they’re getting the best sports writing on the shelf.
