Known as football throughout the non-American sports universe, soccer boasts its own unique language, eccentric expressions and unparalleled personalities.
Soccer is the world’s most popular sport by a long shot, in spite of its peculiarities. For example, soccer keeps time in the exact opposite direction of every other sport on the planet. Secondly, soccer matches, not games, are played by men wearing boots rather than cleats atop a pitch instead of a field.
When overdone, soccer’s inexcusably melodramatic flopping may sully spectators’ enjoyment. Soccer fans also get flummoxed by the inexplicable calculation of stoppage time and anti-climactic penalty kick shootouts that decide championship games.
However, this international sport has flourished for generations.
Incredible athletes, iconic coaches and passionate fans cause both the wealthiest and poorest nations of the world to bask in the brilliance of the Beautiful Game.
You’ll enjoy reading about the cleverly named and highly entertaining British soccer players Spice Boy and Calamity James.
You’ll even discover there really was a Fifth Beatle.
Kick this book around on your own or pass it to a friend.
If you love the Beautiful Game, you’ll want to share these clever comics and lively sports trivia with fellow soccer fans.
