Pele, Di Stefano, Maradona, Ronaldo - Latin Americans are high on any list of football's greatest ever players. This book looks at the good, the bad and the ugly across the entire range of the Latin American football experience. The author crosses the sub-continent - from the giants of Brazil and Argentina, through up-and-coming nations such as Colombia and Bolivia, to the beleaguered football minnows of Nicaragua. It is an account of how soccer is integrated into Latin American culture, politics and society.
