  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1905 to the present day

Relive all the greatest moments of the England national football team through newspaper headlines of the time in this personalised English Football book. With coverage beginning in the 1905, this fine piece of Three Lions memorabilia guides you through over a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from the World Cup, European Championships and more, right up until the present day.

It goes without saying that the high point of the English national football team came in 1966, the year the nation both hosted and won the FIFA World Cup. The final against West Germany, in which a Geoff Hurst hat-trick and a debatably generous Russian linesman led England to a 4-2 victory, has been replayed and relived over and over again, but never loses its appeal. The closest the Three Lions have come to lifting the trophy since was in 1990 in Italy, when Paul Gascoigne’s tears ushered in the birth of an idol for not just England, but the entire world.

In 1996, England hosted the European Championships, with the exact same result as six years earlier: a defeat to Germany on penalties. But they would have their revenge in the sweetest way possible in 2001, smashing the Germans 5-1 on their own turf in a World Cup qualifier.

The book is even updated to include England’s journey to the Euro 2020 final, including their 4-0 thrashing of Ukraine. England had an incredible run, at last making it to a major final for the first time since 1966!

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Bought this as an Xmas present for my husband. The quality is fab. Very happy with this product. My husband will spend hours reading all the pages in this book!

Bougjht this as a leaving present for a collegue who has everything and needs nothing but adores football. It's something he would not think to buy himself but something that will lst forever and could, conceivably, be added to in future years. Hightly recommended.

Poor quality

Very disappointed with my first experience purchasing from In The Book. Both books I ordered arrived with issues - one was bound incorrectly so the spine was bent, whilst the other contained very poor quality illustrations. Even the front cover illustration (Alice in Wonderland) was blurry. Throughout the pages, printing lines are visible and most images just look pale and blurry like a bad quality VHS. Customer service replied very quickly and were helpful - sending out immediate replacements no issue. One book is fine, the other is just as poor quality so I've requested a refund as it is not gift-worthy. Hopefully this will be actioned just as quickly. A shame and I certainly wouldn't recommend.
