July 1966: The dreams of an Iranian political correspondent are shattered to pieces when he is informed that instead of flying to Saigon, he will have to travel to London to report on the World Cup. To him, this is an insignificant matter at a time when the world is silently burning in the flames of wars and in the coldness of the Cold War. However, to his surprise, he finds football to be a new global language. World Cup 1966, in particular, appears to be reuniting people all over the globe. In the middle of the world’s unrest, World Cup 1966 is a moment of fresh air.


From the early elimination of the two time champions, Brazil and Italy, to the phenomenal appearance of North Korea; from the brave Portuguese men who gave their all to stay longer in the competition to the proud Germans who made every effort to repair the broken image of their nation; from the tears of Black Pearl to the nine goals of Black Panther; and from England’s disappointing draw in the opening match to their glorious victory in the Final; the story brings back all the ups and downs of World Cup 1966, set against a stark backdrop of world events that defined that tumultuous time period.

Rated 5/5
I like this novel for certain reasons: I'm a diehard football fan, the book has no plot as an ordinary novel or a tedious love story, but it is a novel based a true football event (world cup 66) with some exciting match reports and news. I feel like the story is autobiographical, because the way the narrator (the author) tells the story as a journalist. It's a very exciting book for any football fan.

I have read several other books on the 1966 World Cups. However, this is the only novel written about World Cup and I dare say the best book I’ve read about this tournament.
