WORLD CUP LEGENDS pays tribute to true icons of international football, focusing on the biggest sporting event on the planet. As well as dozens of the most famous players past and present the book features top managers and referees too. You know the names – Pelé, Maradona, Beckenbauer, Zidane, Beckham – but you’ve never seen their faces in this light before.

So whether your first love is the beautiful game, you’re an aficionado of cartoon art or you simply like a laugh, WORLD CUP LEGENDS is the book for you.
