Booklist Review: "Gr. 6^-12. Woog includes something for everyone--player, fan, and browser--in this look at the game and its top players. Beginning with soccer's origins in England, he discusses its development throughout the world, including the U.S., and introduces teams and players, past and present, that have left a mark on the sport. In addition, he explains how to play the game, with information on the positions, skills, drills, practice games, and official "laws of the game." A listing of professional soccer leagues and of awards are among appended materials. Photos and fact boxes add to the volume's usefulness and appeal. Expect great interest where the sport is popular. --Mary Romano Marks"
