Synopsis

From bestselling author Andrew Ward.

Over a century's worth of fascinating football stories and tales.

The perfect gift for the football fanatic in your family!





The world's favourite sport has certainly given us its fair share of strange moments. Author Andrew Ward has trawled the sports pages of history to create Football's Strangest Matches, a fascinating collection of bizarre-yet-true tales from more than a century of the beautiful game. From Blackburn Rovers' one-man team to Wilfred Minter's seven-goal haul in which he still ended up on the losing side, there are goals and gaffes galore drawn from all levels of the football world, whether high-profile internationals or the lowest tiers of domestic football. This extraordinary book makes a great gift for any football fan, and certainly proves the old adage beloved by football commentators - 'it's a funny old game'...
