World Cup Reads: Soccer in Africa and Beyond

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  06.14.10 | 2:14 PM ET

The start of the World Cup has many of us thinking about great books on soccer. For that reason, we’ve dug up a feature we did a few years ago, Soccer: Three Great Books, which highlights a few of our favorites.

Beyond that, Flavorwire offers up a globally minded soccer reading list.

And on his site, World Hum contributor Frank Bures also shares his two-part list; the first covers soccer in England, Italy, Atlanta and beyond, while the second focuses on soccer in Africa.

Wow, an excellent & very extensive reading list. I’m glad to see that Frank has focused on African soccer as well, this first World Cup on African soil has really spurred my interest in finding out a bit more about African soccer, especially since world coverage of European soccer heavily dominates.
