The Lovereading4Kids comment

Even people who don’t much like football will love this book, and if you are a fan of the beautiful game it will provide hours of fun. The authors, creators of the excellent Football School series, have come up with 300 questions to test your knowledge of football, and none of them are boring stats. There are questions on football around the world, on great goals and great goalkeepers, on record breakers, coaches, even mascots and injuries. A multiple choice format gives everyone a chance of getting it right, but lots of the answers will really surprise you. Lively cartoon illustrations by Spike Gerrell add to the fun. ~ Andrea Reece
