Description

The striking evolution of the world’s most iconic football tactics:
How they work, why they win – and the people that made them iconic.
 
In the early days of football, it was simple: a goalkeeper, two defenders and the rest attacked. Now the game is all about strategy.
 
Innovative graphics and expert analyses guide you through the managers’ decisions that led to new formations, the pure talent of footballers that defined each playing style, and the matches that propelled the winning tactics to legendary status. Sanjeev Shetty explores how each tactic works and the ways in which it guaranteed victory time and time again.
 
From catenaccio to tiki taka, Pelé to Messi and Cruyff to Guardiola, Total Football gives you a new understanding of how the beautiful game is played.
