Concentrating on the lesser-known countries like the Faroe Islands as well as the better-known ones, Connelly goes beyond the clubs and national teams to discover where they fit in their countries and what they mean to people.
The chapter on Sindelar the Austrian player is possibly the best piece of football writing ever whilst the chapter onm the Superga disaster gives a much better idea of that tragic event than the whole book that recently came out about it.
Helped by Sarah Williams's magnificent photography this book is essential reading for anyone who cares about the game and wants to find out more about Europe. Thgere are tales here that everyone should know and it is beautifully written if badly edited in places.
This book is a great read and I can only say that Charlie is a great writer.
