"... this 888 pager is a 'telephone directpry' of a book that weighs-in at a hefty 3kg! Very much one for the football connoisseur and Panini sticker collector" - The Collectors' Companion
Since 1970 a collection of Panini stickers has accompanied each FIFA World Cup, held every four years. Each Panini album is not just a practical guide to the various rounds of the tournament, but it also provides a valuable visual archive of all the teams and their memorable matches.
The book tells the story of the World Cup through the faces of its stars. Three thousand champions spanning the last forty years - the famous and the not so famous, the worshipped and the not so worshipped - all of whom have shared a desire to give their very best and bring soccer glory to their own nations.
For fans of statistics and trivia, the albums (always brought out before matches are played) have been rounded off with charts and tables of the results of that year.
