Book Summary

The World Cup in 100 Objects tells the almost 90-year history of the world's most celebrated sporting event from a unique perspective and proudly boasts the most fascinating collection of artefacts from FIFA World Cup history. Every object tells a rich and fascinating story from one of the actual balls used in the very first FIFA World Cup final (the two teams could not agree on the match ball so supplied a ball to use in each half) and the collar of Pickles the dog, who found the stolen FIFA World Cup trophy in 1966, to Bobby Moore's shirt that he was photographed giving to Pele in the 1970 finals, and the shirt Diego Maradona wore when he scored his infamous "Hand of God" goal in 1986. Richly illustrated, authoritatively researched and expertly compiled, The World Cup in 100 Objects is produced in association with the National Football Museum (the world's leading football museum) and the official FIFA Collection. With text written by respected footballer authority Iain Spragg, this is the FIFA World Cup as never before.
