Soccer. No other sport in the world captivates a bigger audience -- and no other competition electrifies its fans like the World Cup. Now, just in time for the next World Cup competition, comes a book just for kids, jam-packed with information about each and every World Cup ever played. Want to know who was behind the biggest surprise defeat of the 1950 tournament? It's in here. Curious about what happened to the Jules Rimet trophy when it was in England? Turn to the chapter on World Cup 1966. Wondering what the term Total Football means? You'll find the answer here -- along with much, much more, including a bonus chapter on the Women's World Cup and lists of winners, runners-up, and scores of past Cups. And because it all comes from Matt Christopher, young readers know they're getting the best sports writing on the shelf.

This is one of my favorite MCBA books. I got hooked on this book because I love soccer or football in most countries.This book was jam packed with information about the 1930 World Cup to the 2006 World Cup. One of my favorite parts about this book is the detailed chart in the back of the book. It contains the winners of the World Cup,the second place team, the score and the year the World Cup was held.It also has a section on the women’s World Cup. I learned that the U.S women’s soccer team has won the women’s World Cup 2 times. The men’s team has never won any World Cup. This is a very good book but it is a quick read. It is a good book for when you are bored. Maybe you can listen to Shakira while you read.
