4.0 out of 5 stars One Love is a true testament of the spirit of soccer., 23 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: One Love: Jamaica's Reggae Boyz in the 1998 World Cup (Hardcover)
Occasionally a sports book comes along that touches the soul of human fortitude. Jamaica's rise to soccer respectability, leading to their unprecedented appearance on the world's stage in France, is one of the most inspiring stories within soccer's vast global community. Written with the flair of English soccer journalist Daniel Davies and incorporating the first hand, behind-the-scenes accounts of British-come-Jamaican footballer Robbie Earl One Love delves well beyond the realm of sport embracing the proud psyche of a developing soccer nation.
From the gun-totting leader of the Jamaican Football Federation to the unorthodox, yet effective, coaching techniques of the Reggae Boyz' Brazilian headmaster Davies and Earl reveal an unusual caste of personalities. They even make some wild accusations about a Canadian soccer official that is neatly tucked into their depiction of the events leading up to a crucial World Cup qualifier in Canada.
One Love is a brilliant text worthy of a place on any soccer enthusiast's bookshelf.
