Irreverent, inappropriate, and irresistible, this import from England will attract soccer fans—some, perhaps, who may have been recently indoctrinated due to all the World Cup mania—like a magnet, and entice browsers as well. There’s a sequel already in the works, promising at least some coverage of women’s soccer, so be prepared.
Readers will gravitate to this charming, cross-curricular approach to one of the world’s most popular sports… Aside from assisting soccer-loving students that may complain about how certain subjects “apply” to their lives, it can also show young fans a myriad of career options aside from professional play, like coaching, sports photography, and nutrition.
