Paul Hayward

Non-member price: £12.50 + postage
Member price: £10 + postage

In Hayward’s brilliant new biography of the England men’s football team, based on interviews with dozens of past and present players and coaches, including Viv Anderson, Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and current coach Gareth Southgate, we get a vivid portrait of all aspects of the team’s story, reliving highlights such as the World Cup victory in 1966 and the time when football came home in Euro 96, as well as the low points when the players were obliged to give the Nazi salute in 1938 and the era when England’s hooligan fans brought shame on the nation.

“The greatest story in English sport told beautifully by one of its greatest writers” Gary Lineker
