Some call it football, some call it soccer, and to others it´s the beautiful game. By any name, it´s a sport with some fascinating stories. There is murder in Colombia, and a game that lasts for two days where many players never see the ball. There´s the French writer who learnt lessons about life from playing football, and the women players who had to leave the club grounds because "Women´s football isn´t nice". The cups, the leagues, the World Cup finals, the stars, the rules - they´re all a part of the world´s favourite sport, the "Beautiful Game".
Factfiles are non-fiction books. They provide up-to-date information supported by high-quality colour photos. A good choice for the CLIL classroom.
