This book is great! Lots of great facts about national football teams such as biggest win and biggest defeat. Great illustrations of National flags and the football strips. Very concise and the whole family enjoyed looking up facts about the various teams.

This is a fun little reference book (though presumably could quickly fall out of date).  Nice colourful images of every teams home and away kit, fun facts and an interesting little story about each team.  We've enjoyed referring to it whilst watching the World Cup matches and finding out snippets of information about the teams playing at the time.  It will need complete updating after the World Cup though (all those stats about how many World Cup and European Championships tournaments each team has participated in will become obsolete in a month or so) so I'm quite surprised they didn't wait a little while extra to publish this.

A really nice reference book. Lots of facts and figures about every team in the world. Not sure how the book would fair long term with stats changing for each team with every tournament but a really nice little book. Who new there were so many football teams in the world. This would make a great gift for a football fan

A chunky, eye-catching book with a simple bold design, it features a double-page spread for every national football team in the world. There are stats for each team covering things like the country's top scorer, their most capped player, their current world ranking, whether or not they have a women's national team, tournament records, biggest wins and losses and even the kit manufacturer. There are full colour pictures of each nation's first and second kits as well as a short paragraph featuring a couple of interesting and/or historical tidbits. 

The only word of caution I would proffer is that a book like this will very quickly go out of date (although each page does have a small section for you to write in recent results). 

That said, this would make a great gift for any football lover, especially when a World Cup is on the go!
