Product Description

You'll love this because...

From Hurst’s hat-trick to Gazza’s tears, you can relive the most memorable moments in the history of the England national team.

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • 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.

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!

cuzzbuzz Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

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.

Karen Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

The book is really lovely. I'm sure my husband will love his personalised present. The book is bound in beautiful leather with gold personalised writing. Excellent in all ways.

Late Delivery

I would not order anything from this company. I ordered a book almost two weeks ago and it still has not come in. It has been sitting in a holding facility waiting to be picked up by USPS for three days. The book was supposed to be here by June 11. I wanted my son's teacher to sign it before the end of the year and now it is the end of the school year and could not have his teacher sign it.
