  • 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.

Constant calls about delivery

Constant calls about delivery. The people on the phone actually have no control over when an item gets sent out so it was just constantly false information. I actually didn’t need the item after it arrived late, but I couldn’t stand speaking to them on the phone again to go over the refund process which they probably would have not allowed as it was personalised. Really bad experience

Ordered and paid for a book for my…

Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Update: Inthebook contacted me the next morning, updated me on the shipping and my mother’s book arrived the next day. She’s 84 and it’s been awhile since I’ve seen her tears of joy. All’s well that ends well. Thank you, and I’ve updated my review to reflect 5 stars.
