The World Cup
The Complete HistoryBook - 2010
Aurum first published Terry Crouch's compendious history of the World Cup in 2002. This is the third edition, fully updated to include not only all the results and drama from 2006, but also all the results from the qualifying stages of the 2010 tournament. The result is a book of well over 600 pages, which will hit the stores in April, well in advance of the first matches - indeed, at each of the last two World Cups has been the first statistical guide to be published. The book's statistical content is astoundingly comprehensive: for every tournament, right the way from the first ever in Uruguay in 1930, it gives you every match: the date it was played, the venue, the names of all the players, and the referee, and of course the result. These tables are accompanied by exhaustive summaries, round by round, of all the matches, their drama and their goals, as well as by league tables of how every group of matches finished up. So, for any World Cup watcher, whether they want to know which two-dozen players have been awarded the Golden Boot over the history of the tournament, or simply study the players of the four first-time African nations in the World Cup in 2006, this is the book. With England qualifying for 2010, the book is once again assured of a large market. Terry Crouch has now published three editions of this popular World Cup guide. He lives in Garstang, Lancashire.
