FIFA may have forgotten them but I will never forget Outcasts!, 6 April 2012
Outcasts! The Lands That FIFA Forgot by Steve Menary is a must read for anyone interested not just in football but in people, politics and the world at large.
Steve travels around the world and speaks to people involved at the bottom of the international football pyramid getting to know how a man from Denmark started up the Tibet national team, a German comedian organizing an alternative world cup and a Dad who initially just wanted to raise a team for his son to play for but ended up starting a national football team.
If you are intrigued by the world of Football outside of FIFA, away from the mega rich in the Premier League or La Liga then I cant highly recommend Outcasts enough.
Some of the places covered by Outcasts you may never of heard off but after reading this you will know all about football in the likes of Zanzibar, Vatican City, Kosovo or the Northern Marianas Island.
It may be a couple years since this book was launched but the issues and stories told in this book are still important and relevant today. Their is also a number of great photos inside the book which lets you see for yourself the great characters involved in the book.
