From the publisher:
Join football writing's biggest names for a definitive journey through the most unlikely results in World Cup history. Discover the stories behind the tournament's biggest ever upsets - how they were achieved, what really happened and what, if anything, really changed as a result?
Featuring four previous Telegraph Football Book of the Year winners, Against All Odds goes deep into the tales of these storied fixtures, with each author giving their version of events from their unique perspectives, whether it be player and manager testimonies or their long association with the teams or games themselves.
Against All Odds adds rich colour and context to results that have echoed through the ages, celebrating those teams who dared to dream, and triumphed over footballing giants. It shines a light on the inherent relationship between football and socio-political climates, making it not only a comprehensive history but a must-have companion to the 2022 World Cup.
