Description

When England Ruled the World covers the four years immediately following England's 1966 World Cup triumph, charting the progress of the national and club sides. It recalls, month by month, the great matches, teams and players of a golden age and assesses the impact of the country's greatest ever sporting achievement on all aspects of the game.

About the author

Steve Mingle is a long-standing season-ticket holder at Manchester City, and the blame for generating his fifty-year and counting obsession with the game can be placed squarely at the door of the 1966 World Cup. The author of four books on City (one of which they share with his new love interest Oxford United), Steve's other passions include Burgundy and its wines, vintage vinyl and live music as well as the late, great Frank Sidebottom.
