Chronicling a collection of stories over nearly 200 years, this fascinating collection has gathered together the most extraordinary happenings in football history to expose some of the strangest tales to ever befall a football pitch. This collection of bizarre yet true tales from the world’s most popular sport includes stories about the game spectators couldn't see, the games of three halves, the game decided by a hypnotist and the one in which the same player scored all four goals—two for each side.
