Do you play soccer?  Or do you just like to watch?  I am definitely a spectator.  This isn't a book about techniques to help you improve your game.  But it is filled with information that you can share with your friends.  It starts out with the history of soccer.  For instance, did you know that the ancient Egyptians played soccer?  That was way back around 2000 BC.  Or that a soccer game in England in the 700s used the head of a Danish prince as the soccer ball?  Or that in Thailand, elephants play soccer.  Just about everything you want to know -- and then some -- you'll find in this nifty book.
SUBJECTS:     Soccer.
