The Most Incredible True Football Stories (the England Edition): Matt Oldfield


Football is the world’s favourite game where there’s everything to play for and anything can happen. But football has a special place in the hearts of the English. From the great events that have gone down in history, including the cherished 1966 World Cup win, to our forgotten heroes (such as our beloved 24-stone goalkeeper) and the down-right ridiculous (like the time captain Bryan Robson injured his toe trying to get Gazza out of bed), this book documents the most incredible, unbelievable stories from the beautiful game.
