Discover international football's REAL champions! We all love the official World Cup, but it only comes around every four years...Welcome to the unofficial alternative. What if football's world championships pitched teams into a continuous series of boxing-style title matches running way back to the very first international game in 1872? That's the idea behind the Unofficial Football World Championships (UFWC) - probably the least-known but most exciting football competition on Earth. The UFWC title has been contested by almost 100 nations at more than 800 matches spanning over 130 years. Its amazing story involves legendary teams and footballing minnows, classic finals and forgotten friendlies, and celebrated players and unsung heroes. This official guide to the UFWC is packed full of classic matches, key players, and fascinating statistics. Irreverent and entertaining, it adds up to an alternative soccer history - and represents a fresh perspective on the most beloved sport in the world.
