As a relative newcomer to soccer, I found this book to be an interesting look at The Beautiful Game. With an emphasis on soccer in the Americas, it is a lament for the play and the heroes of the past. I recognized few of the names the author mentioned, but I understood what he was talking about. Like all sports today, it is big business. Has it lost its soul?
I still enjoy watching, even if it is on television. I am sure Galeano knows of what he speaks about the finances and corruption. I fell in love with this book at the opening paragraph. I fell in love so hard with this book that a naughty part of me considered stealing it from the library. Note: I returned the book to the library, on time even. I could see, if one has absolutely no interest in soccer, how a person could not be in love with this book.
But I am a huge soccer fan, so not only does this book hold general interest for me, but it is also written beautifully. I particularly enjoyed the fact that this was written from a South American perspective. Galeano mentions many soccer players, artists and writers, and political events that I personally had never heard of before. This book was a joy to read.
Galeano collected close to a short essays about football. And they are beautiful to read and I can only imagine that they are more beautiful in the original Spanish. Galeano loves football. And he also hated the men who ran it. And not just recently, but from a very long time ago.
He loved how the game could make you feel. He marveled at what great players could do. And I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Galeano in this book takes us through the long years of origin and evolution of the game to the form we have it today. Even as an author, he is just another fan. As it turns out, the politics of the times have a profound impact on the sport itself and the way it is played and who plays it. There is no escaping this and Galeano captures it wittingly. This book has beautiful prose which succeeds in bringing out the beauty and the art in the game itself, something the author laments the game has been losing for a while now.

Soccer in sun and shadow, p. Soccer in Sun and Shadow, p. And I played quite well. In fact I was terrific, but only at night when I was asleep. During the day I was the worst wooden leg ever to set foot on the little soccer fields of my country. As a fan I also left a lot to be desired.
As a relative newcomer to soccer, I found this book to be an interesting look at The Beautiful Game. With an emphasis on soccer in the Americas, it is a lament for the play and the heroes of the past. I recognized few of the names the author mentioned, but I understood what he was talking about. Like all sports today, it is big business.
Through stories of superstition, heartbreak, tragedy, luck, heroes and villains, those who lived for football and those who died for it, Eduardo Galeano celebrates the glory of a game that - however much the rich and powerful try to control it - still retains its magic. Galeano can run rings round our glamorous football intelligentsia. Galeano has a style of a great left half. He constantly switches the direction of play.

Compared with this, what we knew before, what we played, was no more than a schoolboy's hobby. Businessmen buy him, sell him, lend him; and he lets it all happen in return for the promise of more fame and more money.
ГЛАВА 89 Лучи утреннего солнца едва успели коснуться крыш Севильи и лабиринта узких улочек под. Колокола на башне Гиральда созывали людей на утреннюю мессу. Этой минуты ждали все жители города. Повсюду в старинных домах отворялись ворота, и люди целыми семьями выходили на улицы. Подобно крови, бегущей по жилам старого квартала Санта-Крус, они устремлялись к сердцу народа, его истории, к своему Богу, своему собору и алтарю. Где-то в уголке сознания Беккера звонили колокола.
