By Ulrich Hesse-Lichtenberger
Tor! the tale of German soccer does precisely "what it says at the tin". because the writer explains, his target used to be to write down an exciting heritage of the German video game. He has definitely completed his target, or "tor" as they might say in Germany. Hesse-Lichtenberger units out to turn out that soccer in Germany isn't really unavoidably the effective, predictable computer that these people believing within the German stereotype may perhaps imagine. back, he succeeds. From the root of the sport to the current day (and dare I point out the historical 5-1 defeat by the hands of the English in Munich in September 2001), the narrative unearths lots of room to incorporate the quirky, fun and unforeseen. The likely curious names of many German membership facets are dissected, whereas the truth that the nationwide facet controlled to win the 1954 global Cup sooner than the arrival of the 1st specialist nationwide league merely serves to amaze. the writer publicizes his trust that it's those who form occasions, and misses no chance to enquire the varied personalities who've made the German online game what it's, from the obsession of Herberger to the maverick brilliance of Netzer. The upshot is a superbly vibrant background, and one who will doubtless shock even such a lot the avid of Europhile soccer fans. the most recent within the line of modern books in English on eu soccer, Tor!, like a few German groups of the previous, is a transparent winner. --Trevor Crowe
