Okwonga runs the voodoo down on the traits that all great footballers possess, sprinkling in great anecdotes and vignettes gleaned from a lifetime of watching "the beautiful game. I recommend it highly.

This World Cup, Remember the Russian People By Musa Okwonga.

This World Cup, Remember the Russian People. The tournament has been a victory so far for Vladimir Putin. But regular Russians will suffer. Why the World Cup Needs Music. Fans and teams alike benefit from good tunes, from Colombian salsa to Brazilian dirges. Can Germany Survive Its World Cup Defeat? My neighbor Peter told me that losing to South Korea has implications for the nation’s soul.

All agree that Pele and Maradona had it. Most agree that Zidane has it, and that Gazza almost had it: but what is it that makes true greatness? Laid out here are the eleven key elements that make a footballing hero, in a thinking-man's study of the beautiful game. With testimonies from managers, pundits and players themselves, "A Cultured Left Foot" discusses the key virtues that combine to make the perfect player. Hilarious, gripping and insightful, it is a must-read for every football fan.

Some nice writing but wanders a bit too far and for too long. Felt like I didnt really get all that much to take away from reading this.

A+....... Book came as described. Great book for football players that want an extra advantage over any other player. The book will inform you about critical techniques and skills that all the legends had. If you want to be considered a footballing great then i recommend this book to get you ahead of the competition by studying the traits that made these players geniuses.

A well-researched work presented in a witty and chatty style. But I feel, there is too much focus on English footballers and wish some more greats from Latin America and how they are viewed through their cultures' perception of and approach to football had also been used. But all in all, quite an interesting read.
