The attacker takes the ball, rounds the defender and fires into the net. It’s a goal! But where did the idea of a goal come from, and what is the origin of the ball?

And why do we kick it rather than carry it in our hands? Because if we did it would no longer be football, but rugby, or maybe even American football… If these questions have ever occurred to you, or the fact that hockey was played in ancient Egypt is news to you, this book is right for you.
