Summary
From the hastily convened inaugural tournament to today's "Greatest Show on Earth," every World Cup is covered. Holt celebrates the grace and glory on international football's greatest contest, but also examines less savory aspects of the Cup's history, such as the murder of Columbian defender Andres Escobar after he scored an own goal against the USA in the 1994 World Cup. There are plenty of statistics--some conventional, others quirky, yet always revealing. Alongside detailed accounts of epic games, there are brief biographies of the heroes of the World Cup; some famliar, others less widely known
