75 Years of the World Cup (Strangest Series) Paperback – 1 Sep 2005. by. Peter Seddon (Author). Peter Seddon is the author of three books on football, including 'Football Talk' (ISBN 1861056834). He also wrote 'Tennis's Strangest Matches' (ISBN 1861053797) in Robson's Strangest series. The World Cup may be the most over-hyped, inflated event on the sporting calendar but one can't deny the amount of entertainment and weirdness it has provided. Peter Seddon takes us through the oddities of the competition in a humourous and sarcastic fashion. Many great tales are recounted.

The World Cup has been called The Greatest Show on Earth. Large parts of the book though covered parts of World Cup history which I suspect only the most anorakish football fan would know about. And if 90 minutes plus overtime and penalties is just the sort of entertainment you like, this book is guaranteed to score. Along with a supporting cast of dodgy refs, eccentric mascots, and manic managers, there are shameful fixes, outrageous cheats, and the most unpronounceable team of all. From Uruguay 1930 to The World Cup has been called The Greatest Show on Earth. The format, each chapter is no more than a couple of pages long, lends itself to dipping in and out.

most memorable match- quite possibly the strangest soccer match ever played. With the game tied, 2-2, what was strange became stranger

Trinidad and Tobago would emerge victorious, but, in the group stage, Barbados and Grenada would play the tournament's most memorable match- quite possibly the strangest soccer match ever played. Barbados, Grenada, and Puerto Rico were grouped together in the qualifying round. For some inexplicable reason, the tournament organizers decided that extra time goals would be worth two goals. With the game tied, 2-2, what was strange became stranger. Grenada realized that a 3-2 win or a 3-2 loss would be equally effective, because Barbados needed a two-goal victory.
