'“It’s all here. Everything you should know about soccer, the world’s game.” —Los Angeles Times“This updated edition serves as a reminder that this is not just a classic sports book. . . .

A winning celebration of the beautiful game.” —The New York Times Book Review“[A] beautiful ode to the beautiful game.” —Sports Illustrated'
