Praise

Praise for Golazo!

“[A] sweeping exploration of soccer intersecting with politics, history, economics and culture in forging a continent’s passion.” — Steven Goff, The Washington Post

“The most comprehensive history of soccer in the part of the world in which it may well mean the most… A thorough, engaging history of the development of futbol and its place in Latin American society… Campomar effectively brings out the color and passion for the game, its evocative langauge, its artistic power and its sometimes-martial ugliness… He accomplishes his task with verve… Fine, scintillating history.” — Kirkus

“Perfection, pride, politics and punch-ups. The South American way of football has never been more readable.” — John Crace, ESPN and The Guardian
