"It’s a funny old game." The world’s favorite sport has certainly given us its fair share of strange moments, and this absorbing collection gathers together the best of them, from more than a century of the beautiful game. From Blackburn Rovers’ one-man team to Wilfred Minter’s seven-goal haul in which he still ended up on the losing side, here are goals and gaffes galore drawn from all levels of the soccer-playing world, whether high-profile internationals or the lowest tiers of domestic soccer. The stories in this book are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious, and, most importantly, true. Revised, redesigned, and updated for a new generation of soccer fanatics, this book is the perfect gift for the soccer obsessive in your life.
