Can you name the three World Cup winners who have also won the Golden Boot outright? What did Just Fontaine received for his feat of scoring 13 goals for France in the 1958 tournament in Sweden. Who went on to win the World Cup despite losing their first match? In which two World Cups have there been no sendings-off during the whole tournament? What was the significance of the black bands that appeared around the goal posts in Argentina in 1978? The World Cup is the greatest football show on earth. It is by far and away the most watched sporting event, attracting a global television audience of over 3.5 billion during four weeks of intense football action. There have been 20 tournaments in 16 different countries since 1930 and each one has its own unique stories and moments captured here in World Cup Nuggets. Richard Foster answers all of the above and provides you with some of the weirdest and most wonderful facts in World Cup history.
