This is the first book to present soccer’s rich history, statistics, and culture through highly detailed yet accessible infographics.

Who is soccer’s greatest player: Pelé, Maradona, Messi, or Ronaldo? Which national team has garnered the most fouls? Where is the best place to aim a penalty kick? Just like the great game itself, World Soccer Infographics is rich entertainment and takes fans of all ages on a visually compelling statistical journey of revelations about the game.

This book is a fresh, colorful approach to depicting the history and statistics of soccer in an insightful diagrammatic form. The “Beautiful Game” has been portrayed in many ways over the years, but never in such a dynamic and interactive fashion that makes for addictive and easily browsable reading.

The book covers every aspect of the game, from statistical information about goals scored, red and yellow cards given, and number of championships won by individual teams, to aspects of the culture surrounding the sports institution and the nature of fandom. It includes information on the World Cup, the Copa America, the Africa Cup of Nations, the UEFA Champions League, and all the world’s most famous domestic club leagues.
Opta is recognized as the world’s leading sports statistics provider. It supplies official statistics for more than thirty soccer leagues worldwide, including Major League Soccer, England’s Premier League, the FIFA World Cup, FIFA Women’s World Cup, UEFA Champions League, Copa America Centenario, and UEFA European Championship.
