With insight from some of the finest Italian football broadcast and newspaper journalists, including a foreword from iconic Italian football writer Gabriele Marcotti, Calcio's Greatest Forwards devotes a chapter to each of the 21 best strikers to have graced L'Italia since 1929, delving deep into the back stories of Serie A's finest attackers. From Gigi Riva's historic Scudetto with Cagliari; to Roberto Boninsegna and an infamous incident involving a Coca-Cola can; through to the modern era, and the Divine Ponytail Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero and Francesco Totti. There's some cracking insight and stories on the 21 subjects, such as why Pippo Inzaghi favoured a cured beef diet, Giuseppe Meazza's off-field antics when awakening the night before a crunch league match in someone else's bed and just why Christian Vieri had a love for cricket. George Rinaldi explores the fine careers of these footballers and examines, admires and scrutinises the finest strikers in Serie A history.
