Euan McCabe is a football World Cup compulsive. Once a typical rugby-loving New Zealand schoolboy, he was mesmerised by his first sighting of Buenos Aires’ Monumental Stadium in 1978 and has since become besotted with the global phenomenon that is the FIFA World Cup ™.
This book traces his growing infatuation with an event that he chooses to celebrate for its flaws as well as its strengths.
