Summary

Why do England lose? Why does Scotland suck? Why doesn't America dominate the sport internationally... and why do the Germans play with such an efficient but robotic style? These are questions every soccer aficionado has asked. Soccernomics answers them. Using insights and analogies from economics, statistics, psychology, and business to cast a new and entertaining light on how the game works, Soccernomics reveals the often surprisingly counterintuitive truths about soccer. An essential guide for the 2010 World Cup, Soccernomicsis a new way of looking at the world's most popular game.
