Extraordinary But True Stories from More than 75 Years of World Cup Football

Find out how a dog called Pickles helped the Football Association, why an England captain was arrested by Colombian police, where the Mexican wave really started, why the German fans taunt the Dutch with cheesy insults, and which defender was shot for scoring an own goal. With stories from every single tournament since the inaugural contest for the Jules Rimet trophy in 1930 right up to the present day, this end-to-end collection of amusing, bizarre, and shocking true stories is filled with dodgy refs, eccentric mascots, and manic managers.
