From the publisher:
Infographics are the fresh, interesting new way of displaying information facts and statistics on any subject. Opta World Football Infographics is the first book extensively to explore the rich history, statistics and culture of football through this innovative new medium. With data extensively sourced from the world's leading football data provider, Opta World Football Infographics reveals the answers to the questions that have long puzzled fans, such as 'Who is the best footballer ever?' with candidates including Pele, Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, or which major football league provides the best value for money, or into which part of the goal is the best place to put a penalty to score (or be saved) in the World Cup.
This book covers football from stadiums to superstars, titles to tournaments, across the world. In fact Opta World Football Infographics, with its painstakingly researched and creatively designed pages, takes our passion and fascination for the beautiful game to a whole new level.
