Description

The Fifty tells the story of football through its best and most influential players, from Victorian gent Charles Alcock to women's world champion Megan Rapinoe via Pele, Charlton, Maradona and Jimmy Hill. It's not about the stats, tactics or managers - it's about the players, from war heroes and match-fixers to superstars and an African president.
