Product description


Perfection, pride, politics and punch-ups. The South American way of football has never been more readable. (John Crace Guardian)

Extra­ordinarily ambitious. (Jonathan Wilson New Statesman)

A compelling account of how football became a force in Latin America with an impact far beyond the pitch, helping forge national identity and fuelling regional rivalries. (Chris Maume Independent)

Campomar effectively brings out the colour and passion for the game, its evocative language, its artistic power and its sometimes-martial ugliness . . . Fine, scintillating history. (Kirkus)

This year's World Cup has inspired a number of notable books, among them ¡Golazo! by Andreas Campomar. (Richard Williams Guardian)

Absorbing and entertaining. (Literary Review)

Lively history . . . Perfectly timed. (Sport)

Gripping social history. (Daily Telegraph)

¡Golazo! is a timely, intelligent and entertaining account of the development of football in Latin America . . . this is a readable and incisive history, a "serious" football book . . . the main strength of ¡Golazo! lies in the way its perspective extends to the politics - real and mythologised - that lie beyond the sport. (Jimmy Burns Tablet)

A fascinating read. (Sunday Mirror)

Book Description
