Some may know Fernando Duarte from his occasional appearances on the Guardian's Football Weekly podcast. He is a passionate Brazilian who always offers a frank, unvarnished opinion on football and the love of his life, The Seleção. As evidenced in the book, he is an accomplished sports writer and social commentator.
Adds a great deal of socio-economic background to each story, some of which was very unfamiliar to me.
The 2014 World Cup has proved Duarte with material for an extra chapter.
