Connelly followed the Liechtenstein's quest to qualify for the 2002 World Cup. What masochistic urge motivates the part-time players of a nation of 30,000 people [with one of the highest standards of living in Europe] to plug away despite the inevitability of defeat ? To answer this question Connelly sampled the delights of the principality where every year the sovereign invites the entire population into his garden for a glass of wine. A wry narrative will delight fans of Bill Bryson and Harry Pearson.Review:
A damned good read ... charming, off the wall and well worth a tenner ( SUNDAY TIMES)
Connelly has a relaxed style and an intelligent eye for people and places ... his hilarious account of following the Liechtenstein national team should be swallowed whole in one sitting ( THE TIMES)
A wonderfully recondite book ( OBSERVER)
A must for anyone who loves the underdog. ( IRISH EXAMINER)
