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.

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.

Quick prompt delivery

I purchased the spider man book for my nephew, the product came promptly and I was updated to its delivery progress which was helpful. The only issue that I encountered was that the website kept crashing so I had to enter the information several times and I was unable to load the picture I wanted at the back of the book, which was a shame. Other than that, good quality book which my nephew loved seeing his name in throughout.
