Sir Geoff Hurst, MBE, was knighted in 1998 for his contributions to soccer, including his World Cup winning hat-trick for England against West Germany at Wembley in 1966. He enjoyed a season with the Seattle Sounders in the twilight of his career.
In this brilliant new book, Sir Geoff risks controversy as he narrows down soccer's greats--from Maradona to Messi; Beckenbauer to Beckham; Pel to Klinnsman--to a select fifty. Bringing many firsthand tales of former teammates and rivals, he gives his take on history's greatest players.
