There are plenty of action pictures of the 1966 World Cup available but the vast majority of pictures in this book are from behind the scenes and they are amazing and Harry Pearson's text adds the humor to a very happy year for Englishmen ! Could we see England players coming out of a record shop the day after a World Cup semi final today ? But we can from 1966, it was a different world and era and this book is worth buying, you can pick it up any time and find something new. If you are a football fan(of any nationality) buy this and enjoy it !
An absolute definitive record of the 1966 World Cup held in England. Yes that's right matches were staged all over England NOT just London.
Very wittily written pieces accompany many rarely published photographs from regional newspaper agencies and personal collections across the country.
Obviously the 4-2 Wembley final gets a look at the end of the book but not at expense of detailed retrospectives of North Korea's shock victory over Italy at Ayresome Park, Pele, Garrincha and Eusebio lighting up Goodison Park
A brilliant retrospective proving that there was more to 1966 then Geoff Hurst's hat trick, Russian linesman and Bobby Moore wiping his dirty hand on his shirt before meeting the Queen.
