The Ball is Round

A Global History of Football




'Just possibly the most erudite football book ever, yet also a very good read. Goldblatt doesn't just understand the social context of the game around the world; he also has a nose for the best stories. This book is a mindboggling achievement' Simon Kuper, author of Football Against the Enemy

A definitive history of global football.
