Description

The Nearly Men tells the fascinating stories of some of the most revered international football teams of all time: sides that could, and perhaps should, have won the World Cup. It's a tale of frustration and disappointment, of footballing beauty and lasting legacy, in homage to the kind of greatness that isn't defined by victory.
