World Cup – The Complete History
All the matches, all the players, all the scores are here—from every World Cup tournament. This guide’s statistical content is astoundingly comprehensive. For every tournament, from the first ever in Uruguay in 1930, it provides every match: the date it was played, the venue, the names of all the players, and the referee, and of course the result. These tables are accompanied by exhaustive summaries, round by round, of all the matches, their drama, and their goals, as well as by league tables of how every group of matches finished up. So, for any World Cup watcher, whether they want to know which two-dozen players have been awarded the Golden Boot over the history of the tournament, or simply study the players of the four first-time African nations in the World Cup in 2006, this is the source.
