This comprehensive guide starts with how it all began, and then traces the growth of football from its 19th-century roots to the magical moments of today. There are flashbacks to the dream teams of Arsenal in the 1930s, Real Madrid in the '50s and Brazil in the '70s, and the major championships of Europe, South America and Asia. Illustrated on every page with colour photographs and archive material, this guide aims to encapsulate the heady mix of nostalgia and passion for the beautiful game felt by fans around the world.
