The World Cup is the largest sports event outside the summer Olympics: the progress of the 32 countries which qualify for the finals is watched by billions all over the globe. To host the World Cup is a prestigious honour.

Since the very first World Cup in Uruguay in 1930, there have been 16 finals, held every four years (with a 12-year break over the World War II period). The World Cup in South Korea and Japan will be the 17th.

For this unique Naxos AudioBooks recording, Brian Glanville the distinguished journalist and World Cup historian, has written the fascinating history of the event. Here are the men who played, the goals they scored, the triumphs, the failures, the shocks and the scandals. Here are the stories of heroes, Pele, Eusebio, Bobby Charlton, Franz Beckenbauer, Johann Cruyff, Diego Maradona, and many more - as well as the villains, the managers, the referees and the football politicians.

It is one of the greatest stories of world sport. The History of the World Cup by Brian Glanville is read by Bob Wilson, former goalkeeper for Arsenal and Scotland and now a familiar face on television, having presented football programmes for over two decades. A must-have for all football fans.
