Football School: Star Players
Publisher: Walker Books
Featuring 50 outstanding football players, this is a who’s who guide to the footballing world, from Eniola Aluko to Zinédine Zidane. Players included come from all around the world and from across the last century.
Organised alphabetically and written in an approachable, conversational style, each mini biography highlights the footballer’s super skills and special achievements, and their important deeds off the pitch as well as on it. Find out how Lily Parr fought against a ban on women’s football; who set up a charity to promote education around the world; and which footballer is also an environmental entrepreneur.
Spike Gerrell’s illustrations add extra humour and contribute to making this a really fun book for football fans. Dip in and look for a favourite player or discover things about players you may not have heard about before.
