Although it assumes different monikers in various parts of the world and has appeared in various incarnations over time, the game of soccer has retained a great deal of its original character. While it is ostensibly simple in terms of equipment and rules, soccer has inspired skill, strategy, and pure athleticism that have allowed the professional sport to evolve. The history of soccer and the biographies of game-changing players who have kept fans riveted game after game are chronicled in this lively volume.
