The first sports title published by Rough Guides, one of the hippest series of travel and reference books anywhere, European Football is, well, a real kick. The book covers soccer on the continent from A (Austria) to Y (Yugoslavia), entertainingly rolling out comprehensive and practical information on every important team and--a real plus for soccer-obsessed travelers--the countries and cities in which they play. In addition to team highlights and histories, European Football points you in the right direction for acquiring tickets, getting to the stadium, what the souvenir and concession stands sell, where to stay, what to eat, and, if that's not enough, how to get onto the club's Web site. Its best bit of advice? "An English football ground is one of the few places in the world where you can eat a boiled hamburger--avoid them at all costs."Review:
