From the publisher:  

Rise of the Underdogs: Football’s New World Order is the ultimate guide to the changing landscape of modern football. As FIFA president Gianni Infantino declared, ‘There are no more small teams and no more big teams.’ This book goes in search of how and why these changes have come about – from Croatia, a nation of just four million people, reaching the World Cup Final to Morocco writing African football history. Each chapter explores how football clubs and associations are breaking down barriers, with stories of icons such as Erling Haaland, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Mohamed Salah.

There are first-hand accounts from those who helped them conquer the odds and reach unprecedented heights, as well as behind-the-scenes insights into why clubs and countries worldwide are breaking new ground. With exclusive views from coaches, players and other professionals worldwide, this is a far-reaching guide to football's exciting new landscape.
