Award-winning photographer Michael Donald has spent six years tracking down the 34 living members of an exclusive club: the only people to have scored in a FIFA World Cup Final.
From Uruguayan Alcides Ghiggia in 1950 through to Mario Gotze in 2016, this is a fascinating portrait of the men who have lived the dream of every football fan worldwide. Michael's intimate portraits are accompanied by an interview with the player that not only relives the moment, but gives fascinating insight into the occasion, from the music they played on the bus to the stadium, to the meal they ate afterwards.
The book includes the story of what happened in each FIFA World Cup , what happened to the players afterwards and what they do today. There's also a comprehensive statistics section covering all the facts and figures for each World Cup tournament so readers can relive the matches they saw, and discover the details about the ones they didn't.
Beautifully illustrated and officially licensed by FIFA, GOAL! is a unique football book that captures the essence of the ultimate sporting achievement.
