Scotland, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Football (Soccer, Association football)

The ultimate fantasy football book.

The natural home for the World Cup trophy is in Scotland. Every Scotland supporter would agree that this is where, in a fair and equal world, the great prize truly belongs. International football was born in Glasgow and Scotland has produced more talented players per head of population than any other small country - think of Denis Law and Kenny Dalglish - while Scottish supporters have shown in huge numbers how much they enjoy being at the World Cup finals. It seems almost unimaginable that world-class Scots might never have got their hands on that trophy.

The deserved rewards for such a blend of talent and devotion are to be found here, in this tale of Scotland achieving World-Cup success, putting them on the same level as the great footballing nations - Brazil, Italy and Germany. This alternative version of Scotland's World-Cup history recounts how Scotland pushes as far forward as justified by the potential of the squad of players it took to each tournament.

It is the story of Scotland striking gold as World-Cup wonders.
