The best-selling guide to today’s most exciting players, completely revised and updated
Here are the best of the best: the iconic forwards Ronaldo, Neymar, and Suárez; the legendary goalkeeper Manuel Neuer; and perhaps the greatest player of our time, Lionel Messi. This lively and accessible book features short biographies of some thirty athletes in all: who they are, where they come from, and what they have accomplished.
With the same action-packed photos and colorful graphics that fans have come to expect from the critically acclaimed World Soccer Legends series, Stars of World Soccer shows what it takes to be at the top of the game.
