Who would have thought that the Welsh national side ever qualfied for a tournament,after this there were a couple of times that Wales almost qualified but always missed out by a toothcomb the recent ones being Romania at home in 93 and Russia in the Euro play-offs in 2003.

Onto the review I first read this book after borrowing it from a friend and reading it was very interesting how disorganised and naive the FAW were back then (sounds like now) I mean they didn't know most of the players and they booked their flights back early because they thought that Wales would not make it to the quarter finals.

It was also good reading about manager Jimmy Murphy who was Bubsy's assistant at Man utd who missed out from being killed in the Munich air disaster as he went to manage Wales in the play-off qualifier against Israel and John Charles almost missing the tournament due to the Italian FA wanting him to play a Italian pre season competition as Italy did not qualify that year.

What probably makes things hard to swallow was that we lost against Brazil by one goal with John Charles injuried and that when Wales returned they were not given a heros welcome home, most of the Welsh public didn't even know they were in the world cup.

Recommended for any Welsh football fan.

A brilliant story for all football fans. Really great gift that can be passed around. Loads of good input from players.
